Navajo grandmother Glenna Begay watches her sheep head out to pasture for the day on Black Mesa. Since the 1970's over 14,000 Navajos have been forcibly relocated from lands their families have occupied for many generations due to what the Federal Government calls "an inter-tribal land dispute". Interestingly enough, much of the vacated land ended up underneath the Peobody strip mine. Glenna Begay lives on her land illegally, and is resisting Federal relocation.
