"Enemies unseen... Fears unspoken...... A dark wind has entered his soul"
Jim Chee, local rookie cop is guarding a windmill that is periodically being put out of business when he hears a plane crash. This leads to many mysteries including a body with a message in its mouth. This takes place on the reservation so we have an overlap of authority in the search for clues, between the local authorities (Lou Diamond Phillips as Officer Jim Chee, Fred Ward as Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn) and the Feds. There is also overlapping rights between the Hopi and the Navaho.
If you have read Tony Hillerman then you will recognize your old friends. It is also nice to see the area where the story takes place around the Navajo reservation in Arizona and New Mexico. Of course being a different media there is some consolidation of characters and allowance for acting stile over written character description. The movie is still fun to watch.

Having been in this part of the country, I particularly liked this movie. Good to be among the Navajo and in Arizona for a change. For some, the movie might be a bit slow, but that is part of the culture and Lou Diamond Phillips is excellent.

A superb film combining detective fiction with the Hopi and Navajo American way of life . Very well filmed and Philips is very believable as the chief character of Jim Chee, a Navajo police office on the reservation.

I have a lot of Tony Hillerman books about jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, Navajo policemen. Great books. Now I saw the film The Dark wind. I have just one word for it, great!
