Mary Jean Robertson Biography

Mary Jean Robertson gets the bio that I (the editor) write for her because she didn't supply one. She is the host of the 40 plus year running radio show Voices of the Native Nations on KPOO radio San Francisco. She is the Executive Director of the Ohlone Profiles project, also in San Francisco and she needs to weed out her inbox so that I don't have to write her biographies (joking).
