The Indian Health Service will on Thursday April 29th present a special screening of “The Return of Navajo Boy” at the Cove Chapter House in Cove, Arizona. The film will be screened at the uranium exposure awareness-building event which starts at 10AM. The film screens at 1:30.
IHS’ Lisa Allee helped organize the event, and both documentary filmmaker Jeff Spitz and documentary participant Elsie Mae Begay will be present to take questions. Health screenings and presentations about water quality and contaminated buildings will also take place. Recently the film also screened at the Rough Rock Trading Post.
Groundswell’s partnership with the IHS also extends to agency playing the film in waiting rooms at the Northern Navajo Medical Center in Shiprock, Arizona. The Indian Health Service’s flyer is re-printed below along with a letter inviting Groundswell to the event from Lisa Allee.
