The Long Walk: Tears of the Navajo

In 1864 eight thousand Navajo men, women and children were marched at gunpoint to a barren reservation along the Texas border. This forced relocation was aimed at crushing American Indian resistance in the Southwest. Hundreds of Navajo died during the march and the four years of forced isolation. The Navajo remember this tragedy as "The Long Walk." Narrated by Peter Coyote.
