Dear Friends of Navajo Boy,

Groundswell is celebrating a few milestones with its Return of Navajo Boy project.

EPA has completed the long awaited $7.5 million uranium cleanup in the community of Elsie Mae Begay, the matriarch in our film, The Return of Navajo Boy.

Groundswell Makes Headlines

Our media outreach team prompted dozens of recent news stories about the uranium problems in Navajo lands, including two national feature stories published by the Associated Press: Navajo Woman Helps Prompt Uranium Mine Cleanup and EPA Wraps Up Uranium Mine Cleanup on Navajo Nation.

Groundswell Keynotes EPA Event in DC

The EPA has invited Groundswell and Navajo webisode correspondent Mary Begay, to present our model for documentary film, news making and advocacy in Washington DC on November 16th for Native American Heritage Month. Our presentation will be broadcast on EPA-TV.

New DVD Edition

Groundswell is proud to announce the release of our new 15th Anniversary edition of The Return of Navajo Boy DVD. This edition includes features such as: webisodes, slideshow about Groundswell’s methods, behind-the-scenes photo gallery, 2011 epilogue and the original 1950s film Navaho Boy: The Monument Valley Story.

Next up: We are raising funds to develop curricula and an education program with our Navajo partners. The project, led by Mary Begay, will empower other communities on the reservation with knowledge, tools, and skills to advocate for clean up of uranium contamination. We welcome all donations to this effort.
