This is Lenapehoking: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

November 3, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 – $25

This is Lenapehoking: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Adam Waterbear DePaul
Tribal Council Member; Storykeeper of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania

Chuck GentleMoon DeMund
Chief of Ceremonies of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania

The Morris Arboretum and Woodmere Art Museum sit side by side in Northwest Philadelphia, and both share a strong interest in the history of our shared landscape, our institutions’ role as stewards of the land, and a desire to acknowledge and honor the past as we plan for the future.

Our shared location in Northwest Philadelphia is on the traditional land of the Lenape people, and still holds names that come from the original inhabitants like Wissahickon, Tulpehocken, Conshohocken, and Manayunk. ‘Lenapehoking’ is a term for the lands historically inhabited by the Lenape (the area that was named the Delaware by early European settlers).

In recognition of this history of our land and in celebration of Native American Heritage Month, we have invited Adam DePaul, storykeeper of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania, to share stories of the Lenape and their relationship to the land–past, present, and looking into the future.

The evening will begin with a tribal drum performance led by Chief of Ceremonies Chuck GentleMoon DeMund and the Itchy Dog Singers, a group within the Lenape Nation.

This event will take place at the Woodmere Art Museum, 9201 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118.

The Morris Arboretum Lecture Series is supported in part by the William Klein Lectureship Endowment, the Laura L. Barnes Horticultural Lecture Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation, and the Byron & Elizabeth Lukens Lecture Endowment.
