This is a beautiful film made by a young woman, Camille Manybeads Tso, who was 13 when she made most of it. It preserves the oral history of his family and of the Navajo people. Camille conducted the interviews, researched the time period, wrote the script for the re-enactments and recruited her family to help make the costumes, direct, film, act, sing and edit this work. This is a beautiful and astonishing film. Very commendable for a middle school student to be able to create such a piece of work.
A docu-drama about a 13-year-old Navajo who finds her own strengths through making a documentary about her Grandmother and their ancestral history. She imagines what it would be like to be her Great-Great-Great-Grandmother, Yellow Woman, who lived through the Navajo Long Walk of 1864-1868. The re-enactments are performed by descendants of Yellow Woman and filmed in many of the places where the historical events actually took place. Grandmother speaks in the Navajo language which is sub-titled.
