In this episode, we continue the discussion that began in episode 5 of season 4 of the SAPIENS podcast, a conversation that examines how archaeologists study sacred sites… and when they don’t. We are joined by Ora Marek-Martinez, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Northern Arizona University and Prof. Nicholas Laluk, assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley.
SAPIENS Talk Back was developed in collaboration with the Indigenous Archaeology Collective and the Society of Black Archaeologists, with special help from Dr. Sara Gonzalez, Dr. Justin Dunnavant, Dr. Ora Marek-Martinez, and Dr. Ayana Flewellen. Special thanks also to Dr. Chip Colwell and the production team at SAPIENS, Dr. Danilyn Rutherford at the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and House of Pod.
This episode was made possible by financial support from the Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Massachusetts Boston. We want to thank our panelists for leading our conversation: Gabby Omoni Hartemann, Eric Mazariegos, and Maryan Ragheb. This episode was hosted by CIAMS graduate students Anna Whittemore and Alex Symons, and our sound engineer was Olivia Graves.
