Navajo - The Long Walk, Part 3

When the Navajo refused to give up their homes and land, Kit Carson and his soldiers embarked on a "scorched earth" policy about a year before General Sherman began his "March to the Sea."

Then ... Kit Carson and his men killed the Navajo sheep - which were like part of their family - and many of the Navajo began to surrender.  General Carlson's original vision, of relocating the Navajo, was about to begin.

Navajos were escorted from their homelands as they made "The Long Walk" to Bosque Rodondo.  Many walked 350 miles, or more.
