National Geographic Live presents Mireya Mayor: “Pink Boots and a Machete.”
From NFL Cheerleader to National Geographic explorer, Dr. Mireya Mayor’s exploits have earned her the nickname “the female Indiana Jones,” but the fashion-loving anthropologist always packs an accessory Harrison Ford’s character never would: a black dress — “should an unforeseen occasion arise.” A former NFL cheerleader, daughter of Cuban immigrants, and mother of six, Dr. Mireya Mayor followed her unlikely dreams. In short order, she became a respected primatologist, audacious explorer, National Science Foundation Fellow, Fulbright Scholar, and an Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. Her book, Pink Boots and a Machete is available in bookstores worldwide.
