The Lenape: Lower New York's First Inhabitants, a discussion with Dr. David M. Oestreicher
Sunday, November 24 • 2:00 pm • Auditorium
Register using code HMA936
In this lively talk, Dr. Oestreicher combines archaeological and historical evidence with decades of firsthand ethnographic and linguistic research among present-day Lenape traditionalists. By the late 20th century, only a handful of elders could still speak their native language, or had knowledge of the traditional ceremonies, religious beliefs, and life ways. This lecture offers a unique opportunity to learn about lower New York's original inhabitants, the Lenape as they really are today. Dr. Oestreicher is recognized as a leading authority on the Lenape (Delaware), our region's first inhabitants. He holds a Master's degree and Doctorate in Anthropology, from Rutger's University. Registration required. Open to all.
