Navajo art movie produced by Homer Hott, Holmesville, will be shown in Killbuck
KILLBUCK − The Holmes County Historical Society will show the entire Navajo Indian arts and crafts movie produced by Holmesville resident Homer Hott at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 30, at the Duncan Theater in Killbuck.
The life story of Hott was presented last year in Holmesville with memorabilia and clips from the movie produced in 1954 on the Navajo Indian Nation.
Since then, Dee Ann Lemon, daughter of Homer Hott, has made contact with Daron Butler, a native American Navajo Indian living in Wooster. He will attend the theater presentation in Navajo dress.
Memorabilia will be on display from Homer Hott’s times on the reservations. Rugs, jewelry and pottery will support the feature film Homer produced. The original brittle 16mm sound color movie was digitized by A.R.S Video Inc. in Cuyahoga Falls.
The movie is free, but donations will be accepted. The concession stand will be open for popcorn and snacks.
The Killbuck Valley Museum will be open the night of the movie from 5-8:30 for those wishing to tour the museum with local Indian artifacts and more.
