Homeschoolers: Lenape Day: Honoring their Culture and Influence

Thursday, November 2, 2023 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Before colonists arrived from Europe, Native American tribes existed all throughout America, and Minnewaska was no exception. The area we now call the Park Preserve was once home to the Lenape tribe, a peaceful people who established strong connections with the natural landscape we enjoy today. In this lesson, we will have an open-minded talk about who these people are, how their history and culture compare to ours, and what we can learn from them. We will play traditional Lenape games, tell Lenape legends, and even make our own story. This program is recommended for homeschooled children aged seven to twelve years old, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Well-behaved younger siblings are always welcome. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
