Native Voices: LENAPE LIFEWAYS

Lenape Lifeways:

Introducing the First People of Pennsylvania, New Jersey & Delaware

With Native American Heritage Programs

At the time of Columbus, thousands of Native Americans lived in “Lenapehocking,” the vast homeland of the Lenni Lenape, who were the first inhabitants of eastern Pennsylvania.

This program explores the life and times of these peaceful, progressive people, comparing and contrasting their social customs, history, religion, family life, agriculture, hunting, healing practices, arts and crafts, past and present contributions (and much more) with those of the Europeans and Colonial Americans of their time.

FREE ~ Open to All Ages
