Native Vision - The story of Alice Benally

Living Voices - Native Vision flyer info

Native Vision focuses on the story of Alice Benally, a young Navajo girl who is taken from her home and placed in a government-run boarding school during the 1930s, as part of a government effort to "civilize" Native American children into mainstream society.

 Native Vision

 

From a perspective of life of Native Americans in the 1930's and 1940's, this Navajo girl explores her family's past while struggling to keep her culture in a government-run boarding school. Her vision of becoming a modern healer in a changing world is brought to life as her community joins the U.S. in World War II.
