Indian tribe suing ‘Out of the Furnace’ writers, producers
The Associated Press
NEWARK, N.J. — Members of the Ramapough Native American tribe have filed a $50 million lawsuit against the makers of a recent movie they say depicts their people in a negative light.
The federal suit was filed Monday in New Jersey against the writers and producers of “Out of the Furnace.”
The suit says the film makes false representations about the people who live in the Ramapo Mountains along the New York-New Jersey border.
It claims the film perpetuates negative and unfounded stereotypes and has caused the tribe humiliation.
