There is no word for 'relocate' in the Navajo language. To Navajos, relocation means to disappear forever. In 1974, Congress passed a law that ended a land dispute between the Navajo and the Hopi Tribe. The Navajo-Hopi Land Settlement Act caused the relocation of thousands of Navajo from their homes in Arizona.
This documentary tells three stories of what life is like, today, in what has since been called the New Lands: Mae Horseman and her daughter return to their old home 23 years after they were forced to move; residents of the New Lands protest the rise of alcoholism and related crimes and attempt to force the closure of an liquor store; on the positive side, some have created a demonstration ranch for cattle and providing training for raising cattle for famed Navajo beef.
