The Women of the Ramapough Lenape Nation" uncovers long-forgotten Lenape mythology and gives voice to the women of the tribe. Using re-remembered sacred stories as a foundation, artist Lisa Levart has created epic photographic imagery that inspires viewers to gain a deeper awareness of our collective heritage, as well as an appreciation for fundamental traditions that have had a lasting impact on our Hudson Valley community.
Lisa's project employs the power of portraiture and the impact of photography to bring about social change. In this special presentation, she will discuss the project, as well as screen a documentary (work in progress) by filmmaker Myles Aronowitz being made about this project.
