If you read the French version of Wikipedia and the caves visitor centre website, it tells you that André David, his sister Marthe and their friend Henry Duterte discovered the caves. If you read the English version of Wikipedia and other archaeology and travel websites, Marthe is left out of these accounts. Shout out to Marthe!! Erasure from history sucks and we just want you to know that we see you girl!
