Take a curator-led tour of the the first-ever Lenape-curated exhibition in New York featuring masterworks by Lenape artists past and present.

The exhibition includes never-before-seen beaded bandolier bags from the 1800s, a newly created turkey feather cape, and culinary tapestries from a seed rematriation project in the Hudson Valley. Participants will also have a tour of the Greenpoint Library and Environmental Education Center. In addition to providing traditional library services, the new building is a teaching tool itself, empowering New Yorkers to learn about the environment and how to build a more sustainable and just world.

Tour Highlights:

  • Handmade beaded bandolier bags
  • Turkey feather cape
  • Second Floor Cistern, which can capture 1500 gallons of rain water
  • Rooftop pollinator garden
