Manaháhtaan Symposium

Copresented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, NYU Native Studies Forum, and the Lenape Center

How can we mutually expand our knowledge of Indigenous Manhattan? We began by hosting a symposium on October 29, 2016 in Manaháhtaan to encourage new conversations on diaspora, identity, and the centering of Lenape and Original peoples in NYC’s past and future. These sessions brought together Lenape leaders, artists, and scholars in dialogue, acknowledging issues of environmental stewardship and concerns for futurity. Learn more here.
