Navajo Canyon Country
Length: 12 Minutes

Vivid shots of the Navajo as they go about their daily lives add subtext to the beautiful narration of a beautiful, striking, place.
The Pueblo Heritage
Length: 20 Minutes
Learn about Native American history in The Pueblo Heritage. The pueblo people lived in the American southwest for centuries before the country was even discovered by Columbus. Even though they were resourceful, the Indian tribes had to leave their homeland because of a twenty-year drought. The film shows what happened to the land as the soil dried up into sand. Capturing the culture of the Pueblo peoples we see a traditional ceremony. The film also shows the sheer size and stature of the adobe houses, and jewelry, pottery, weavings and other crafts being produced.
Old West, Cowboys and Indians
Length: 15 Minutes
Was the west ever truly won? This amateur documentary pays homage to the wild deserts and terrain of the old west, complete with, Cowboys and Indians, dwelling in its unconquerable and inhospitable deserts. The silent footage needs no narrative to describe the timeless beauty of the New Mexico and Arizona deserts and the rugged, tough people that rough out a living in its expansive confines. Showing lovely images of Native Americas living their daily lives and attending a feast in typical cultural dress, and old school Cowboys riding their horses, wearing their stereotypical hats. We are for a moment transported to a place and time of cattle rustling, rough living, and barren lands populated by exciting rock ranges and wondrous Adobes.
