For the first-ever time, the Navajo dub of Star Wars will be given a public, off-nation screening. The event is at the National Museum of the American Indian in DC on November 1 (and it's a costume event!).
This Washington DC premiere will be one of 11 venues across the country for this much-awaited film, “Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope,” dubbed in the Navajo language and with English subtitles. This version of the movie has only been shown on or near the Navajo Nation. The excitement over the initial release this past summer has carried across the country. The Navajo Nation Museum took the lead on this venture and then Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and Deluxe joined the effort to help audiences experience the film in the Navajo language. Dress as your favorite character and win prizes! Cuisine from the Mitsitam Cafe available for purchase from 5 to 6:30 pm.
