Set against the extraordinary backdrop of the Southwest and Navajo cultural heritage sites, Canyon Del Muerto portrays the epic true story of North America’s first female archaeologist, Ann Axtell Morris. Ann worked side by side with the Navajo in the 1920’s in Canyon De Chelly, Arizona to uncover North America’s earliest civilization, the Anasazi Basketmakers. (Coerte Voorhees, 2022, DCP, 111 minutes)
