We are thrilled to share that thanks to the support of the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York, we are now able to offer this popular course for free!

Co-led by the Museum of the City of New York and the National Museum of the American Indian-New York, this popular course examines trade and relations between the Lenape and the Dutch and life on Mannahatta and in the Hudson River region. Through guided workshops, lectures with guest speakers, and walking tours, explore source material in the two cultural institutions, learn about the relationships between the Lenape and the Dutch, and compare and contrast the natural landscape and ecology of Mannahatta in 1609 to the island of Manhattan today.

 

    This course is open to all educators.

    For educators who wish to receive P Credit, participants must also register on ASPDP by 11:59 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.
