    Digital Reference: 
    Bertha Parker Pallan [Cody] (1907-1978) is considered one of the first female Native American archaeologists. The caption to this photograph said that Bertha Pallan was an "expedition secretary" who was demonstrating "the difference in size of early type [small] and large type atlatl darts from Gypsum Cave." This photograph may be related to an expedition sponsored by the Southwest Museum (Los Angeles). In 1936, Bertha married Iron Eyes Cody (1904-1999). In the 1950s, they hosted a television program explaining Indian history and folklore and served as technical advisers on several films.
