Archeologist and educator John Kraft presents an illustrated program on the Lenape-Delaware people of New Jersey. The talk covers the 12,000 years of Native American prehistory, European contact, and native displacement.

Mr. Kraft will describe Lenape daily life, legends and art, religious beliefs, traditions and customs, and systems of government.  Lavishly illustrated with slides and also the speaker's own collection of prehistoric artifacts, traditional clothing, arts and crafts, musical instruments and weapons, this talk brings the Lenape and their communities vividly to life.
