Online: Native American History with the Lenape Center

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 7:00pm - 8:00pm ET Online Ages: 10 and up

LENAPEHOKING | DIVERSE CULTURES

I'm sorry if you missed it, but this event already took place.

In collaboration with the Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library, this program will be presented by the Lenape Center based in Manhattan. The Lenape Center has the mission of continuing Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland through community, culture and the arts. "We push back against our erasure and seed the ground with Lenape consciousness for the next generations."

Lenapehoking is the Lenape name for Lenape land, which spans from Western Connecticut to Eastern Pennsylvania, and the Hudson Valley to Delaware, with Manhattan at its center. Due to centuries of colonialism perpetuated by genocide, forced displacement, and systemic oppression, today the Lenape Diaspora is dispersed throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Lenape diaspora includes five federally recognized nations in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario.
