Filmmaker Dana Romanoff on ‘Canyon Song’
An obvious takeaway is the beauty of Canyon de Chelly and its appeal, drawing even more visitors. But it is also important to recognize and honor the native people and what happened to them on this land that we now call a National Monument. The Draper family highlights a positive aspect of the Navajo culture and the importance of knowing our past and being connected to our ancestors and tradition.
