Story of the Lenni Lenape, April 22, 2019

https---s3-us-west-2.amazonaws As part of its Speaker Series, on Monday, April 22 at 5 PM, the New Hope Historical Society (45 South Main Street, New Hope, PA) is presenting Cynthia Wilks-Mosely, a representative of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribe and St. John United Methodist Church, who will trace the story of the Lenni Lenape over 10,000 years.  Ms. Mosely will discuss how the Lenni Lenape hid in plain sight for nearly 150 years, and managed to survive until this day. The role of the Methodist church in the survival will also be discussed. In addition she will share the story of the most recent 40 years in the life of the Lenape, and demonstrate how they are still here.

The presentation is followed by a reception in the elegant Parry Mansion’s American Empire dining room. Admission is free for members of the New Hope Historical Society. There is a $15 admission fee for non-members of the Historical Society. For reservations, contact the Society at 215-862-5652 or at newhopehs.org.
