Event description

Description

Learn more about the history of Lenape peoples in this region in a conversation with Nanticoke-Lenape tribal historians, including Cara Blume, whose research was the foundation for federal recognition claims by Delaware and New Jersey Lenape tribes, Curtis Zunigha from the Delaware Tribe of Indians and the Reverend John Norwood, first principal justice of the Tribal Supreme Court. Along with local tribal history, the Historical Society will also join to discuss its Native American collections and important archival questions about erasure and self-representation.

This event is part of the Free Library’s One Book, One Philadelphia program. Events inspired by Tommy Orange’s novel There Therewill take place citywide from January 22 through March 18, 2020.
