By Jennifer Napier-Pearce
Salt Lake City, UT – In 1864, the US military forced thousands of Navajos from their homes to march to an internment camp along the banks of the Pecos River. 2,500 died on the way, and over 8,000 were imprisoned at the Bosque Redondo for 4 years. A new KUED documentary explores the Navajo trail of tears and its legacy for native people. Join guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce for a look at The Long Walk.
- Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., KUED will host a free screening and panel discussion on its new documentary, The Long Walk. It will be held at the Salt Lake City Public Library. For more information, click here or call 581-6163
