The Marking of a Milestone (2015)

150 years ago, the Colorado River Indian Tribes reservation was formed by an act of Congress along the lower Colorado River in Arizona and California. The reservation now combines Mohave, Navajo, Chemehuevi and Hopi tribes, but the land was originally occupied by Mohaves: the ‘Aha Makhav’ (River People).

The film documents life for the Mohave people and how it’s changed over time. It will be part of the oral history of the tribes going forward. Since the film’s premiere to 4 screens, John has made a followup documentary on two unique challenges for the tribes in the modern day.
