Native New Yorker is a kind of Manhattan travelogue seen through the eyes of Native American Terry "Coyote" Murphy. Starting from Inwood Park, Coyote makes his way down Broadway and winds up at ground zero. Along the way, locations are stripped of their conventional meaning and imbued with their significance to local Native American history. Filmmaker Steve Bilich shot the film with a 1924 hand-cranked Cine-Kodak camera over a period of several years, ultimately mating it to an original score composed by William Susman.
