When officer Chee (Adam Beach) is driving on the deserted road, passing through several small tunnels, close-ups of him behind the wheel show a roof rack instead of the light bar for his Dodge Dakota patrol vehicle. This happens twice in this series of scenes. See more »

Quotes

John McGinnis: First thing he says is "coyote." Tagert's a coyote. That's about as strong as a Navajo gets, ain't it?

Kinda slow at first......
18 November 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This was my first Hillerman experience. Maybe the slowness of the beginning is necessary, but I was wanting to check out. It got better towards the end with several interesting twists that I was glad I stayed for. I enjoyed seeing the area of the reservation (or 'rez' as they say in the movie) and hearing a bit of American Indian mythology and stories. No special effects, just good acting and a good story.
