I was an attender at the webinar, working from TaborSpace (a study area).
The magazine has lots of interesting content and I went browsing while listening to the discussants (I had no microphone, though added my two cents by chat).
I don't recall Benezet being all that prominent in the discussion, but I may have missed that part. It's all recorded at Maria's site -- or that's her usual practice.
What I gathered from the webinar is that this journal is aware of what I've often repeated, that all math is ethno-math (meaning you cannot separate mathematics from surrounding ethnography -- why try? Doesn't philosophy matter to you?).
To have everything hinge on any one figure, be that Piaget, Benezet, Escalante or anyone, seems a rather dim-witted approach to any narrative. Lets get beyond messianic tellings, if we want to spare any future messiahs from their fate as scapegoats and/or villains.
