Mannahatta: The Lenape and the Land
Sunday, October 20 from 12—2 pm
Long before Manhattan was the crowded, noisy city it is today, it was an island of rolling hills, forests, streams, and other natural features, teeming with thousands of species of plants and animals. Through images, objects, and stories you will learn about the Lenape, the American Indians who inhabited this island for hundreds of years before any European explorers knew it existed. Then create a storyboard tracing how the Lenape made use of and transformed the island’s natural resources.
Reservations are recommended.
