On Sundays through October 28th, you are invited to visit Churchville Nature Center’s authentic Lenape Indian Village, the way it would have been in the 1500’s just prior to European contact.
Learn about family life, see how they lived in long houses, and how they planted their gardens, built dugout canoes, cooked, dried and stored their foods, what animals they hunted, what weapons they used, how they made fire by friction, how they made coil pottery, and how they made cordage from natural materials.
You can also play some games and do some Native American dances.
Cost is $5 per person, children under four are free. Pre-registration is required.
In case of inclement weather, programs will be held inside.
Every week there will be a different craft or skill featured, such as corn pounding, games, hunting, scraping a hide, fire making and rope making. On the last Sunday of every month, come see how the Lenape celebrated birthdays and anniversaries and other events (storytelling, games, dancing and give-a ways).
