S3 Ep5: The Mayors of Shiprock

Meet The Mayors of Shiprock – that’s what some people call The Northern Diné Youth Committee. These young Navajo leaders meet every week to learn about their Native culture, discuss community improvements, and work to bridge divides within their community. Some on the reservation say they don’t have the traditional knowledge and language needed to be real leaders… but the Mayors are not stopping.

Premiere Date: November 6, 2017 | Runtime: 00:58:49
