A young Lenape woman, Jane Snake, returns to her ancestral homeland, Manahatta, to work as a securities trader. Drawing parallels between the forced removal, taxation, and fiscal impact on Native Americans during the 2008 financial crisis and the 1626 Dutch purchase of the island of Manahatta/Manhattan, playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle (a citizen of the Cherokee Nation) teases the duality in Jane as she seeks to uncover her complicity in infrastructure designed to destroy her people.
