The Western mind's popular curiosity and its seemingly ceaseless search for Spiritual Peace and Wisdom in the distant and exotic lands seems to have now discovered the influential Islamic mystic poet Rumi. But with thousands of pages in various literary forms from poetry to prose to letters, and with the numerous interpretations of Koranic verses both in Persian and Arabic, this renowned Sufi thinker is no Khalil Gibran of yesteryear. His theological and ethical system of thought reigns strong and unchallenged in variousIslamic cultures.

"American Native" documents the struggle of the Ramapough Lenape tribe for official recognition. The film addresses "the forces aligned against them -- old-fashioned bigotry, gaming interests, local property and government interests, federal neglect, and worst of all, the opposition of other Indian peoples."
Beverly Braxton will lead a short discussion following the film (run time: 1 hr. 23 mins.).
