Bertha Parker Pallan (Cody) was one of the first female Native American archaeologists. Bertha was the expedition secretary for an archaeological dig in the Gypsum Caves of Nevada.  She is shown above displaying finds from the expedition.  Bertha also collected and preserved Yurok traditional narratives.  

In 1936, Bertha married Iron Eyes Cody.  In the 1950s, the couple hosted a television program about Native American history and folklore.
