The National Association of Interdisciplinary Ethnic Studies (NAIES) is an organization dedicated towards finding solutions to some of the “Ethnic” problems which plague U.S. society. Some of these solutions are found when people from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and environmental backgrounds are brought together to communicate and discuss germinal ideas. To this end, the NAIES, in the recent past, has set up regional conferences in various parts of the United States. These regional conferences are a microcosm of the national conference. The regional conferences follow similar guidelines as set up for the national conferences. I attended one of these regional conferences at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, California, in November, l979. A critique of this conference will illustrate how such regional conferences are about solutions.
