About the film:
In this intimate portrait told through the eyes of Lenape tribal leaders in Pennsylvania, a challenging spiritual journey unfolds to heal past wounds and keep a culture alive. Over the course of a weekend, members of the Pennsylvania Lenape Nation perform healing ceremonies for the land affected by the Walking Purchase—a notorious event that changed the course of the tribe’s future—and reveal the dark underbelly left out of history books.
The struggles, joy, pain, and resilient spirit of the Lenape all bubble to the surface as the tribal members share stories passed down through the generations and reveal their visions for the future of life on Earth. The Lenape are here to tell the world that not only are they still here—they never left.
