Contents Notes
The resurfacing of a decades-old film reunites a man and his family and explores radioactivity problems on the Navajo reservation. The original film, Navaho boy: the Monument Valley story, produced by Robert J. Kennedy, chronicled the Cly and Begay families. The new film, Return of Navajo boy, juxtaposes the families' lives now and then. The current film also explores the effects of uranium exposure from the mines on the Navajo Nation on the health of the Navajo people. It documents the return/reunion of John Wayne Cly, a Navaho boy, taken as a child by missionaries around 1960 from his Navajo family.
