People of New Amsterdam, New Netherland, and Lenapehoking

New York City is built on the legacies of the people who have lived, worked, and traded in this region for thousands of years. The profiles in this educational resource showcase individuals from the Dutch New Amsterdam period, inspired by the research from the Museum’s exhibition :New York at Its Core. Their stories provide insights into the histories of trade, politics, slavery, gender roles, and ecology in the region. Accompanying insights from scholars provide additional context for the forces shaping the lives of these individuals and address the legacies of the colonial period for today.
