    My heartfelt admiration and praise to the featured family for being strong, Navajo parents. Not all Navajos were captured and forced on the Long Walk so not all of today’s Navajo population are decendents of Long Walk survivors. I’m not sure I accept the Long Walk link to this disorder but I believe the values of putting their children first, taking care of each other and spiritual fortitude are linked to the Long Walk. Otherwise, how would have those who survived the dark years at Ft. Sumner still been able to walk back to their homeland as they did.
    I hope more research will be done on this disorder to find out why it’s effecting Navajo families more often than others, but also how to prevent or cure it for all effected families. Excellent presentation!
