VIDEO: ‘Star Wars’ gets dubbed in Navajo



“We often like to tout that Oklahoma is Native America, right? All of our daily lives benefit from the fact that our neighbors come from a variety of different cultures, belief systems and all the different things that they do,” she said. “These are things that don’t get carried on as easily if the languages don’t survive.”

Screening locations were chosen primarily on the basis of their Native American population. As part of the arrangement with Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox, all screenings will be free. However, certain venues may require an RSVP.

The film made its debut Oct. 4 at the Arizona State University in Tempe. It will continue its tour through Nov. 9 at locations in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, California and Washington, D.C.

Doors open at the Sam Noble Museum screening 6 p.m. Oct. 27, with the film beginning at 7. Guests are encouraged to dress up. The first 50 guests in line will receive a commemorative poster.

Seats are on a first come, first serve basis, but reservations are available for those 70 years old and up. Contact the museum for more information at

For more information on this film and screening dates and locations, visit, the Navajo Nation Museum on Facebook or call the Navajo Nation Museum at 928-871-7941.
