10 years ago1.3K views

Trailer: This film documents the culture of the Papago Native American tribe (today known as the Tohono O'odham) who reside on the sparse land of an arboreal desert located in southern Arizona. The movie delivers good information on the Papago way of life, including farming methods, irrigation techniques, arts and crafts, cattle raising, government systems, school systems, and rodeos. It contains good footage of women cooking, weaving, making pottery and carrying water on their heads.
