"People of the Desert" is an episode of the Disneyland television program.


This Disneyland episode concentrates on two groups of desert dwellers, the Navajo Indians of the American Southwest and the Blue Men of Morocco. Although the two groups are as different as night and day, they have several things in common, including a love of solitude, independence and the wide open spaces. The first half of the episode would be released theatrically later in 1957 as the "People and Places" short subject Navajo Adventure; the second half had already been seen in theaters as Blue Men of Morocco.
