Recently found this short doc featured on National Geographic's YouTube page. I know you guys will enjoy this!
From the film's synopsis:
Arizona’s Canyon de Chelly National Monument is a place where many Navajo families come to reconnect with their roots.
The area was once inhabited by Ancient Puebloans and some believe that the ancestral spirits still remain. Every year, sisters Tonisha and Tonielle Draper spend time in the Canyon learning about their Navajo heritage from their father and grandmother.
In this short film from the National Park Experience, watch Tonisha share her knowledge in the Miss Central Navajo Pre-Teen pageant and continue the tribe's traditions for another generation.
