"What is a Lamanite?" Based on this single basic question, one Native American man seeks out answers to hard questions about Indian and Mormon identity. Angelo Baca, a Navajo and Hopi filmmaker, takes a personal journey exploring the influences of the Mormon culture upon his own and what the definition of a Lamanite really means from individuals from within the church as well as outside of it. Traveling across the country from New York to Hawaii, issues such as colonization, assimilation, and proselytizing of indigenous populations are confronted and discussed. From an indigenous perspective, this provocative documentary explores the impacts the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Book of Mormon has on native peoples and communities challenging the traditional, some might even say racist, notions of the original term and its place in the church's teachings. A documentary whose answers will surprise and enlighten you.
