Traditionally, the Navajo people of Big Mountain Arizona have been sheep herders... hence the placards of lambs surrounding this puppet. Today the Navajo are in a life and death struggle with the federal government over land rights. The puppeteers wished to inform the public that government stealing of Indian land is not just a thing of the past. Corporations want the coal and uranium on Native land, and the Indigenous people are resisting the land grab.
