Program Title THE CHURRO AND THE NAVAJO: One Family's Journey to Save the Sacred Sheep
Program Description The Navajo elders cried when they saw Sharon Begay bringing the sacred Churro sheep back to the reservation. They thought the "old time" sheep were gone forever. As children, they weaved the fleece and lived on the mutton. They also witnessed government forces slaughter their families' Churro to prevent over-grazing. This presentation features photographs and anecdotes documenting one Navajo family's journey to help save the Churro, and in the process, saving the family and Navajo culture.
