        Manahatta         Silver Of A Full Moon         To The Seventh Degree



Manahatta

Synopsis:
A gripping journey from the fur trade of the 1600s to the stock trade of today, Mary Kathryn Nagles MANAHATTA tells the story of Jane Snake, a brilliant young Native American woman with a Stanford MBA. Jane reconnects with her ancestral homeland, known as Manahatta, when she moves from her home with the Delaware Nation in Anadarko, Oklahoma to New York for a job at a major investment bank just before the financial crisis of 2008. Janes struggle to reconcile her new life with the expectations and traditions of the family she left behind is powerfully interwoven with the heartbreaking history of how the Lenape were forced from their land. Both old and new Manahatta converge in a brutal lesson about the dangers of living in a society where theres no such thing as enough.

Silver Of A Full Moon

Synopsis:
Sliver of a Full Moon is a portrayal of resistance and celebration. It is the story of a movement that restored the authority of Indian tribes over non-Indian abusers to protect women on tribal lands. Although thousands contributed to this victory, Sliver of a Full Moon follows the story of five Native women who took a stand and two Native men, including Congressman Tom Cole, who stood with them to win this victory. But this victory doesnt include our sisters in Alaska. As re-authorized by President Obama on March 7, 2013, Section 904 of the Act limits the restoration of jurisdiction to Indian country, thereby explicitly excluding 228 federally recognized tribes in Alaska. Consequently, Sliver of a Full Moon asks the question: what will it take to restore the jurisdiction of all tribes to protect the lives of all native women? Together, we will create the answer.
