With: Clan Mother Teri Hislop, Chief Chuck Gentlemoon DeMund, and Chief Adam Waterbear DePaul Tribal Council Members if the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, and just a week before the traditional Thanksgiving holiday, you are invited to join the Morris Arboretum & Gardens and Woodmere Art Museum as we welcome Indigenous voices and stories from Tribal Councilmembers of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania.
Clan Mother Teri Hislop, Chief Chuck Gentlemoon, and Chief Adam Waterbear will discuss the past and present of the Lenape in Pennsylvania, traditional Lenape craft, and Lenape drumming. Together we will screen the 20-minute award-winning documentary Keepers of the Way, which captures the 2019 Walking Purchase Healing Journey--a two-day gathering during which the Nation performed healing ceremonies for the land affected by the notorious "Walking Purchase."
Attendees will see examples of indigenous artwork, hear stories, be treated to drumming and singing by the Stone Dog Drum, hear Native perspectives on the Thanksgiving holiday, and participate in a moderated Q&A with the presenters.
This event is a collaboration between Woodmere Art Museum and the Morris Arboretum & Gardens. The program will take place at the Woodmere Art Museum, 9201 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118. Register with Morris Arboretum & Gardens.
