A Professional Archaeologist Applauds My Editorial Work!

“It was a well-written and respectful article. I couldn't have said it better- and that's my business! I'm going to have my employees read it as well. Maybe I can convince one of them to take up diving with me!” ~ Garth

Rick Stratton, editor of Dive News Network, passed along the following email to me today. Professional archaeologist, Garth Baldwin, is referring to a side bar story of mine (Sacred Burial Sites of British Columbia's First Nations) that was published in the January 2010 issue of Northwest Dive News,

I was reading through the latest issue and noted on page 17 and article on Native burial sites. The author was not apparent. I want to offer you my utmost thanks for that article. It was respectful and to the point. I'm a professional archaeologist and have worked for many tribes here in the States. The issue of looting (and simple disrespect for our collective human past) is a daily part of my job. I thank you and if you are not the author- extend my thanks to them as well.
