The Legend of Lento the Coyote
Set in the southwest during the Spanish conquest, a lost Navajo boy, Anahu, finds an unsmiling friend in a coyote name Lento. The pair embarks on an adventure to find Anahu’s home, but they must first seek the help of the old wise man who lives atop the mountain. These colorful and unusual characters come to life in this comic story of friendship, hope and strength; virtues that lie within us all.
Follow Anahu, a young Navajo boy, in that "Wizard of Oz"-like journey to find his way home.
