The Lenape are the original human inhabitants of the region that is now Delaware, New Jersey, southern New York, and eastern Pennsylvania. Lenape people continue to reside here and strive to maintain and revitalize their culture, language, traditions, and community. On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, join the Itchy Dog Singers and other members of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania for drumming, dancing, and ceremony at the Bell Tower at 4:00.
This outdoor celebration will be followed by a reception in CHAT (10th Floor Gladfelter Hall) at 5:00 to mark the opening of the exhibit “Everyday Artistry, Enduring Presence: The Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania.”
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Religion, the Global Studies Program, the Department of Anthropology, and the Native American and Indigenous Studies at Temple (NAISAT) student group.
