Navajo Star Wars

November 13, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Free screening in honor of Native American Heritage Month! Introduction by Terri Sulaiman of the Navajo Nation in her Navajo (Diné) language along with an English translation.

Conceived by Navajo Nation Museum director Manuelito Wheeler and his wife Jennifer, this version of STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE is dubbed in the Navajo language and voiced by nearly 70 Navajo voice actors. It is the first major motion picture ever dubbed into a Native language. In Navajo with English subtitles (obviously!).

PLEASE NOTE: it is based on the “Special Edition” of STAR WARS with the added scenes and CGI.

Screenings are co-presented with Mother Nation and we ask that you support them with a donation this month. You can donate directly to them at their website or in-person at these screenings.

Thanks to Johnny Arnoux (peenAquim~seen from afar) for conceiving this program and for his help and encouragement.

FYI, free ticket reservations will begin one week prior to the film’s showtime.
