My grandma tells our family's Long Walk story to Hwééldi, Navajo for Fort Sumner. It comes from the Spanish word for Fort, fuerte. Around the 1860's, US troops rounded up Navajos from their homeland to an established reservation near the Bosque Redondo area in southeastern New Mexico. Following the Treaty of Bosque Redondo on June 1, 1868, the Navajos were allowed to return to their original homeland. The posting of this video is not meant to show that I have any hatred towards this government. In fact, I consider myself a proud American. It is because of this country I found the love of Christ and live as a Christian. No government is perfect, and in the infancy of this country our forefathers did things they would regret this day. This video is a documentation of history. Should any comments be posted that shows hate towards America, it will be deleted. Enjoy!
