RACING THE REZ
In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners compete for state championship glory. Win or lose, what they learn in the course of their seasons, will have a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
Racing the Rez unfolds over two years of careful, patient observation, and offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life.
