“We Are Still Here!” Lunaapeew/Lenape Celebration Weekend   

All are welcome! This is a family event with activities for all ages, including arts and crafts, Munsee language workshops, and panel discussions featuring Lenape community leaders and Knowledge Keepers discussing their efforts to preserve and pass on Lenape cultural traditions.

This two-day event is the public launch of a multi-year partnership between the Eenda-Lunaapeewahkiing (Land of the Lunaapeew) Project, with the support of the American Indian Community House (AICH), and the Museum of the City of New York, with the support of the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York. Related exhibitions will open at the Amsterdam Museum in May 2024 and the Museum of the City of New York in 2025. Coinciding with the 400th year since Dutch settlers’ arrival in 1624 in what is now New York City, this international effort speaks to the resilience and creativity of Indigenous people today, and to the importance of recognizing their central role in shaping our city and nation.
