This week's featured film is: The Last Conquistador

This documentary covers the decade-long (1997-2007) protests by members of the Acoma tribe against the construction of a two-million dollar statue of Juan de Onate in El Paso, Texas. Onate, a Spanish explorer, was exiled from New Mexico due to his cruelty to the native peoples by the Spanish government in 1614.
