Navajo Nation Shows Award-Winning Film to Congress

An official selection of the Sundance Film Festival and PBS, The Return of Navajo Boy introduces audiences to Native American culture, environmental racism and one Navajo grandmother’s incredible struggle for justice.

The Return of Navajo Boy with Epilogue is an internationally acclaimed film that reunites a Navajo family and triggers an unfolding federal investigation into uranium contamination in the Navajo Nation. See the groundswell rising in the news and on campuses at

In 2008 the Navajo Nation entered into an unprecedented partnership with Congress to clean up the Cold War contamination. Is it possible to clean up more than 1,000 abandoned uranium mines on Navajo lands? What are the environmental health impacts? Who decides where to put millions of tons of radioactive waste? Who is responsible?
