Summary:
The Navajo settled in what is now the American Southwest, where four sacred mountains marked the boundaries of their country. A tribe of hunters, they learned how to farm from the nearby Pueblos. When the Spanish brought new livestock to the region, the Navajo became shepherds, marking the beginning of dramatic upheaval and cultural changes. European encroachment led the Navajo to unsuccessfully attack Fort Defiance and, facing starvation, they had no choice but to surrender. In 1864, the Navajo were forced to march "The Long Walk," 255 miles to Fort Sumner, which left many people sick, injured or dead. After negotiating a return to their homeland, Navajo country was continually encroached upon. Part of the multivolume Indians of North America Video Collection, each featuring the compelling history and culture of a particular Native American tribe.

Only available in the US.
