When a Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape teen is caught vandalizing property in protest of the school's Indian mascot, her mother cuts a deal to help her atone with the school. But when their tribe's traditions clash with the championship bound high school football team's, the two worlds are left wondering how - or if - they can co-exist. Another story ripped from NJ headlines from the author of Lines in the Dust, Indian Head asks us to take a hard, honest look at how we appropriate culture and the ways in which we honor and exploit tradition.
