"Broken Rainbow" (1985) written by Maria Floria and Victoria Mudd, narrated by Martin Sheen. This historical documentary chronicles the Navajo-Hopi Resettlement Act of 1974, which relocated 10,000 Dineh (Navajo) peoples from their ancestral homeland in northeastern Arizona and the community resistance to the law. The film dives deeply into the many causes and effects associated with the cultural removal of the Dineh including the role of Peabody Coal Co. Although the film was made in 1985, it continues to have revelance today as the "Relocation Law" remains in effect and Dineh communities continue to resist. Proceeds from the film will Jake Stockwell return for the fifth consecutive winter to Big Mountain/Black Mesa as Dineh Grandmother Pauline Whitesinger's sheepherder.
A question and answer session will follow the film facilitated by Jake.
