The study of mod p points on Shimura varieties was originally motivated by the study of the Hasse-Weil zeta function for Shimura varieties. It involves some rather subtle problems which test just how much we know about motives over finite fields. In this talk I will explain some recent results, and applications, and what still remains conjectural.
