Concerned about the declining health of people all around them, Native American women are sparking physical and spiritual rejuvenation through reclaiming traditional foodways. Return offers an approach to confronting the diabetes epidemic now rampant in Native American communities.

Return Director/Writer: Karen Cantor, 28 min.

Canyon Song follows the Draper family as they practice traditional indigenous farming methods in the Canyon de Chelly Wilderness. As a portrait of two young Dine girls, Tonisha and Tonielle Draper, this movie artfully positions the historic with the modern.

Canyon Song: Directors Dana Romanoff and Amy Marquis.
