Short Description:

Every Monday in the small community of Shiprock, New Mexico, a group of young Navajo leaders meet to decide how they will help their community. For over seven years, the Northern Dine Youth Committee has worked to give youth opportunities to directly make changes within their community. But while the NDYC works to make changes, many members also consider their own futures, commitments to family and the world outside of the Shiprock. While they love their community, they all must consider their options both on and off the reservation.

maintaining the trans-continental network in the US.  Metal Road enters the world of Navajo families amid history of railroad work through the lens of one workday on the 9001 Heavy Steel Gang. Replacing rails on over 64,000 miles of track, the unknown journey of Navajo trackmen in the United States reveals an invisible group of workers striving to earn retirement benefits and inspires us to rethink the “American” work ethic.
