Old Pueblo Archaeology Center's Indigenous Interests Presentation
Dr. Ora Marek-Martinez has been an archaeologist in the Southwest for over 20 years, working with, by, and for her People – the Navajo Nation. She was the first Navajo female Tribal Historic Preservation Officer to serve the Navajo Nation and also was one of the first five Navajo Tribal Members with a doctoral degree in Anthropology. The knowledge, approaches, and protocols that Dr. Marek-Martinez learned from her Navajo People have provided her with her own unique approach to Indigenizing archaeology – which led to the co-creation with the Navajo Nation of Nihooka Dinée Bilá Ashdláii archaeology, or an archaeology of the Five Finger Earth Surface People. In this talk, Dr. Marek-Martinez will discuss her journey to braiding knowledges as an archaeologist and as a Diné Asdzaa, or Navajo Woman, in hopes of creating a future that the Navajo People envision based on and guided by their own understandings and stories of the past.
