MEDICINE MAN COUNTRY
Navajo territory, located among the sacred canyons of Arizona, is home to the largest Native American tribe in the United States. Among the Diné, "medicine-men" conduct sophisticated practices in which health and beauty are inseparable. In the Navajo language, they are called the "hatali", meaning the "singers". In the company of Albert Laughter, Bernard Fontanille discovers the Navajo art of healing.
