APACHE 8 opened the 2016 United Nations Association Film Festival
In the spotlight then and now: In 1980, National Geographic featured teen Nita Quintero at her sunrise ceremony, an Apache rite of passage. Nita grew up to become an elite firefighter in Apache 8, the famed all-women firefighting crew from the White Mountain Apache Tribe. Earlier this month, Nita was again in the spotlight representing her crew at the United Nations Association Film Festival, where the Hanson Film Institute-produced documentary Apache 8 opened the festival.
