Film showing: “The Heart of a Warrior”

June 21, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

Free

Navajo Transitional Energy Company LLC, a business entity of the Navajo Nation, is sponsoring a special engagement of a documentary film “The Heart of a Warrior,” a film about Navajo Code Talker Samuel Sandoval, according to an NTEC news release.

The showing is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at the Phil Thomas Performing Arts in Shiprock on June 21.

Sandoval and his wife, Malula, said they’ve wanted to show the documentary in Shiprock since the film was released in 2012.

The video was produced by Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. The idea for the documentary came after Samuel was a guest speaker at the college in 2012.

In addition, Sandoval, 93, is from Shiprock and is the last living code talker in Shiprock. So the engagement is special for Sandoval and his wife. This is will be the first time the documentary will be shown to a large audience in his hometown.
