Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
On this month’s podcast we have Desireé Martinez. Desireé is the President of Cogstone Resource Management and Tongva Tribal Archaeologist. During the conversation she takes us along through her journey to becoming an archaeologist. She also talks about what she’d like to change about California archaeology and the CRM industry. Throughout the conversation, she discusses how the journey towards respectful treatment and repatriation of the Honuukvetam [Ancestors] and sacred and cultural sites has shaped her entire career.
