What can one person do to keep their community healthy? Cherilyn Yazzie grew up on the Navajo Nation and after years of working in public health, she has returned to her ancestral land to grow produce for her community. As a social worker she tired of telling kids to ‘eat healthy’ when that was not possible; there are 13 grocery stores on the Navajo Nation, a reservation that is over 27,000 square miles. This summer, she and her husband are embarking on their biggest crop to date. Big Water Summer follows the farm over several months that don’t go as planned. Drought, family loss and an unexpected opportunity both undermine and sharpen their goals.
