Death Valley Documentary on VOD/DVD for National Native American Heritage Month
Award-Winning "The Women in the Sand" Calls for Preservation of Timbisha Shoshone Culture
By: Leomark Studios
Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos narrates this moving story of Pauline and Maddy Esteves, two tribal elders now in their 80s and 90s, who have struggled all their lives with the Federal Government and their own Tribal Council to overcome injustice and save the ancient culture of Death Valley's original people. Through storytelling and archival images dating back to the Gold Rush, Pauline and Maddy, along with historians and other members of the Timbisha tribe, reveal the rich history of their people and their unyielding courage to stand up to corporations, the U.S. government, and greedy Tribal authorities.
