this woman of radiance and mist

"I am not wrong: Wrong is not my name
My name is my own my own my own
and I can’t tell you who the hell set things up like this
but I can tell you that from now on my resistance
my simple and daily and nightly self-determination
may very well cost you your life"
June Jordan, "A Poem About My rights"

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. CAMILLE MANYBEADS TSO
