Navajo Son: Meet the Great American Cowboy

Growing up on a Navajo reservation in rural Arizona, Derrick Begay always dreamt of making it as a professional cowboy. But the idea of someone from his tribe hitting the big time seemed out of reach—though folks, including his own father, had tried to do it, no Navajo had ever managed to.  After years of hard work, Begay finally succeeded, becoming one of the first Navajo cowboys to qualify for the National Finals—and he’s gone on to compete there six more times.   A Yeti Presents film.
