Pub. Date:
In 1983, Interior Secretary James Watt sold coal leases at unusually low prices to developers in New Mexico, and hundreds of Navajo families were torn from their homes and displaced to other areas. The tragedy of this occurrence and the lack of humanity or even minimal human understanding of the plight of the displaced Navajo is the topic of this moving documentary. This story barely surfaced on the U.S. national news before it was forgotten. As noted in the documentary, there is a long history of injustice and neglect on the part of a U.S. bureaucracy that seems only to respond to public pressure in correcting its transgressions against the Navajo. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
