It's Turquoise time

“Turquoise Rose” Premieres in Window Rock, ArizonaThe long awaited and anticipated Navajo movie Turquoise Rose, filmed last year on the Navajo Reservation, officially premiered on June 29 and 30 in Window Rock, Arizona at the Navajo Nation Museum.

The movie will introduce first time Navajo actors Natasha Kaye Johnson, Deshava Apachee, Ethel Begay, Rhonda Ray, the well-known comedian Vincent Craig, and a number of other first timers to the big screen. In addition, Ernie Tsosie III, from the comedy duo ‘James and Ernie’ plays an important part in the film. “I’m excited to let Navajoland see their own in the movie. It was a goal I set out to accomplish years ago and now it’s right here in front of me. Natasha has already had other opportunities to get in front of the camera…I know after this film comes out, so will Deshava and a lot of others. The opportunities are only beginning for Dinétah in the film world…I believed it. Now I know it.”

Sure hope Turquoise Rose doesn't have her own radio show, as someone might mistake her for Tokyo Rose...
