documentary film about waila music/dance of the Tohono O'odham people of Southern Arizona/Northern Mexico

This film features performances by waila artist Gertie Lopez and her band. Based in Tucson, Arizona, Gertie is a female bandleader, an occupation reserved for men, who follows in the footsteps of her father, Augustine. The Tohono O'odham, neighbours of the Pima (Akimel O'odham), Yaqui and Tarahumara and other groups, occupy the second largest reservation in the US, but are much less visible than other Southwestern groups. Their reservation is on the Western Desert, where much migration by Mexican and Central American workers is funneled now that the Texan and Californian immigration corridors have been militarized post-9/11. Antonio's, a bar featured in the film, was the last remaining bar in South Tucson; it was shut down in 2011.
