The Navajo Nation Museum has created a new version of "A Fistful of Dollars" dubbed in the Navajo language. The idea is to spread the language. Trailer included in the following link. Please forgive the article for featuring a screengrab from the wrong movie.

The absence of Native American characters in the spaghetti Western, called B?eso Dah Yin?łjaa' in Navajo, was the perfect choice for dubbing because it didn't contain any offensive stereotypes, Navajo Nation Museum director Manuelito Wheeler told NPR.

I like how Leone's disdain for native americans in western movies just became an antiracist statement.

Absolutely. Also, it's wonderful how, decades after Leone's death, the number of his extant works continues to increase.

Many languages: one Leone. May his march of cultural conquest continue ad infinitum.
