Women of the Ramapough Lenape Nation

Witness women and young girls from the Ramapough Lenape Nation reclaiming long forgotten ancestral stories, revealing personal connections to these narratives and in the process, raising awareness to a community whose tribal land is 20 miles outside of Manhattan. This powerful series of portrait photography has been exhibited at historical museums and colleges, and available for future exhibitions.

Filmmaker Myles Aronowitz's insightful documentary follows Levart and the women as they embark on a creative process that transports viewers into an indigenous, nature-loving world; ancient, contemporary, personal, and unabashedly - matriarchal.
