On December 1974 Congress passed Public Law 93-531 "The Navajo-Hopi Land Settlement Act". It authorized the partitioning of the Joint Use Area (JUA) and established the Navajo-Hopi
Indian Relocation Commission (NHIRC) which moved Navajo people from the reservation lands. Countless of the most traditionally and culturally intact Dineh (Navajo) people were forced to re-locate to cities like Shiprock and Tuba City.

This 1985 documentary traces the history of both tribes and the events that led to this devastating land grab by Peabody Coal and Bechtel Corporations, assisted by our own government(major players included Barry Goldwater,Morris Udall,John McCain, and President Ford). The goal: access to coal and uranium resources.

Narrators include Martin Sheen, Buffy
Sainte-Marie and Burgess Meredith.

This documentary won the 1986 Best Documentary Academy Award, but you'd be hard pressed to find it in video stores or on-line.
