Official Promotional Trailer | AOPT Documentary Film

- This is the "Official Art of the People Promotional Video" explaining the group's mission statement, as well as, previewing the 2013 Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort Murals Project in which AOTP completed 10 murals in 10 days.
"Na’toh’ dine’ Tachinii,’ their stories are rare and genuine; these are a few of their stories we (Art of the People) envisioned about the events the Diyin Dine’ (Holy People) created for the people of this world (White World). In the process of making the murals, we came together and mended these ancient stories piece by piece and successfully recreated a picture of a way life of the Navajo people in form of abstract painting. We spent time composing, discussing and arranging what was a story into a work of art. We relived our childhood days of sitting at home in the hooghan listening to our elders telling the creation stories of the holy people (Diyin Dine’) into the night. This project was important to us. I hope you experienced the Hózhóo’ feelings from these artwork as you view them."
