A little bit of essential background:
The tribe has been doing construction on an “apartment complex” in the back yard. A slight architectural miscalculation led to a “roof tile” giving way when stepped upon. The result was an 8 foot free fall and a scary back injury - the extent of which could not immediately be determined. After much deliberation it was concluded that Professional Movers had to be called in.

I think not.
