The Long Walk: the Story of Navajo Captivity  

Monday, September 22nd

10:30am - 11:30am

 

As white settlers and prospectors pushed westward in the latter half of the 19th century, displacement of Native Americans from their ancestral homelands became commonplace.  One of the most tragic episodes of exile was the Long Walk in 1864, when Kit Carson rounded up 8,000 Navajo and forced them to walk more than 350 miles from northeastern Arizona and northwestern New Mexico to Bosque Redondo, a desolate tract on the Pecos River in eastern New Mexico. Presented by the Heard Museum Guild.
