Pirates of the Navajo Nation

Shonie De La Rosa and Andee De La Rosa

2008, 22:00 minutes, colour, English/Navajo


This short documentary was developed to inform and educate people about the huge problem of DVD/CD piracy on the Navajo Nation. The film was used to educate the Navajo Nation Council about the problem and to encourage Council Delegates to enact legislation to ban piracy on the Navajo Nation. Currently there are no Navajo Laws prohibiting piracy on the Navajo Nation. Piracy is estimated to be a 4.5 million dollar a year illegal industry on the Navajo Nation.�
