To Navajo people of the American Southwest, “sheep is life”. The Navajo-Churro sheep is the original breed, which has sustained the Navajo, Pueblo and Hispanic people for 400 years. On the verge of extinction a generation ago, the Navajo-Churro is making a comeback to the Navajo people. Economic returns and prudent management can ensure the survival of the breed and the rich heritage associated with it. The Navajo-Churro is recognized by the Slow Food Foundation for biodiversity as a culturally and genetically important animal, worthy of international recognition. This film offers a portrait of rarely seen traditional Navajo ways of life and sustainable herding practices.
