Native American Heritage Month Keynote Reception

DATE & TIME: 3:00pm EST November 6, 2019
Our featured event is the Keynote Reception, on Wednesday, November 6, starting at 3:00 pm in the Regina Peruggi Room with our speaker, Oleana. Oleana is a valued advocate of the Lenape community. A Tsalagi-Algonquian descendant, Oleana is a member of the American Indian Community House and Museum Guide/Educator/Curator/Native American Outreach Liaison.  She has also presented a Lenape Exhibit (digital screening & talk) created by Lisa Levart who photographed the women. She has most recently presented at NY Society for Ethical Culture and on Governor’s Island, along with Lisa Levart’s newly expanded Exhibition participants. 
Oleana will share an oral historical account of the Lenape in reference to the New York City land. She will also discuss current issues and priorities facing the Ramapough-Lenape, having recently won their land settlement case with the State of New Jersey that permits them to maintain their Ceremonial land. This event is open to the entire campus community and we hope to see many of you there! 
Registration for this event is now closed.
