Museum of Indian Culture: The People of the Northeastern Woodlands
On Monday, November 20th, Christine Applegate, of the Museum of Indian Culture, will present a special program starting at 7:30 PM on how the arrival of the Europeans impacted the peoples of the Northeastern woodlands. This program outlines the culture of the people of our area, the Lenape, before and after the arrival of the European colonists.
Living in our area for a minimum of 15,000 years (they say they’ve been here since the beginning); the Lenape took advantage of the natural resources and seasonal changes to build their society. They developed unique styles in housing, clothing, cuisine, and social structure. With the advent of the Fur Trade, new products became available and the relationships among neighboring tribes and the natural world changed.
The story of these changes is told through the use of hands-on examples of food, clothing, tools, furs, and trade goods. After the lecture, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and get an up-close view of these items.
We hope you will join us on for this amazing and informative presentation!
