ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. -- The Elmwood Park Centennial Committee is sponsoring a free presentation on the Lenape Indians Tuesday, Nov. 10.
Anthony De Condo, author, educator and archaeological advisor for the Paterson Museum, will make a presentation that “brings history to life” by providing insight into the everyday activities of the tribe.
He’ll talk about basic wigwam construction, fish trap use and artifact discoveries of these early New Jersey inhabitants.
The Lenape talk will follow the committee’s regular 7 p.m. meeting, starting at approximately 7:30 - 7:45 p.m.
The public is invited to attend both meetings, which will be held in the courtroom of the Elmwood Park Municipal Building at 182 Market St. The centennial committee has an ambitious schedule of year-long events planned, and is eager to involve more people.
