Family Equity Days – A Day in the Life: Lenape Lifeways
August 17, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Experience a day with the family on the ancestral lands of the Lenni Lenape People! You’ll enjoy a hike through fields and woodlands as you journey to our recreated Lenape encampment. Let your imagination soar as our professional Environmental Educator guides you to the longhouse where you’ll discover how these indigenous people and their rich culture thrived in a place that sustained and provided for all their needs. Your family will have the change to test their skills with our hands-on activities practiced by Lenape children and adults during the Contact Period. We’ll share what we’re continuing to learn from their descendants, known today as the Delaware Tribe of Indians, and where they are now! This program is appropriate for families with children ages 6 and up.
