United States USA Date:1941 Duration:1 min 55 sec Sound:Yes
Views of sheep dipping of herds owned by Native American Indians. Stockade-type pens erected to hold and control sheep. Workers guide the sheep into a channel where they are immersed in a solution under direction of U.S. Government experts. Stong young Native American men are seen picking sheep up and placing them into the liquid-filled channel, where others, including women, prod them along through the bath. One of the men (acting) appears in distress, and companions help him to a car, which drives away with him. Scene shifts to young Native American woman and her Grandfather (named Slow Talker), outside a building as physician comes out to tell them their friend, is very sick with tuberculosis. He says the heavy work at the sheep dip caused his lungs to bleed.
