Watch Now Free! Six Native Films 'New Mexico is More than Desert'

From the White Mountain's 'Apache 8' women firefighters, to Laguna Pueblo's 'Grab' day of food giveaways and 'Return,' the renewal of ancient foods of Santa Clara Pueblo and beyond -- there's incredible cinematography and storytelling in the six Native films now streaming.

'Metal Road,' isn't about heavy metal, its about the Dine' who built the railroads. Share in the heart-warming stories of Dine' artist B. Emerson Kitsman who returns home to Tohatchi in 'A Return Home,' and the Navajo and Hopi cross country runners in the canyonland high country in 'Racing the Rez.'

'Return: Native American Women Reclaim Foodways for Health and Spirit,' shares the voices and foodways of Santa Clara Pueblo, Tlingit, Muckleshoot, Oglala, Menominee, and Seneca.


From the colonization of boarding schools and the throw away food of white flour to diabetes and today's food revolution, 'Return,' is history and reclaiming.

"They knew without our foods we would be nobody," says Valerie Segrest, Muckleshoot in the Pacific Northwest, describing how her people knew the importance of the land, and the salmon, for survival.

Roxanne Swentzell, Santa Clara Pueblo, advocating for pre-contact traditional foods, says, "Win yourselves back."

During this reclaiming of ancient foods at Santa Clara, Hopi taught the traditional way of preparing piki bread, the paper thin bread of ground corn cooked on a hot stone.
