Default Paleo and calcium

Today at work I did a little (emphasis on a little) looking into paleo diet. It seems like something I would want to start as it's much more healthy than the average american diet. But, I briefly noticed that 100% Paleo doesn't allow dairy consumption. How would one get their calcium intake if following the diet strictly?

I wrote about this here. Milk isn't the only source of calcium and calcium isn't as important as the dairy industry would have you believe (though it is important in balance with other minerals).
