Oritt, Steven, (film director.). Bobker, Corey, (film producer.). Ogens, Matt, (film producer.). Yorn, Pete, (composer (expression)). Dauer, Marc, (composer (expression)). Phydo Films, (production company.). Keepers of the Pass (Firm), (production company.). Dark Hollow Films, (publisher.).

Summary: Thirty miles from New York City, tucked away in the Ramapo Mountains of New Jersey, lives a group of indigenous people shrouded in mystery and discrimination, fighting for acceptance as Native Americans...The Ramapough Lenape Indians. American Native exposes this group's fight for respect as Native Americans, examining their efforts to gain recognition from the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the private interests that may have colluded behind the scenes to prevent them from doing so. Through expert interviews and unbridled access to the community, the film provides an in-depth look at the group's complex past, volatile present and endangered future.
