"Manahatta" tells the parallel stories of Jane, a Native woman from Oklahoma who travels to Manhattan to work on Wall Street on the brink of the financial crisis, and the displacement of the Lenape Indians from their home on the island of Manahatta in the 1600’s. Shifting between the present and the past, "Manahatta" explores how the concepts of indigenous identity, ownership, and capitalism have shaped American society and created the country we know today.
