Volunteers gathered February 4th and 6th to craft new Native American teaching props for our Lenape programs. Twelve artisans created clothes, toys, tools and games, during our first-annual “Lenape Crafts and Construction Days.”
Many fine teaching props were created over our 8 hour work session. A walnut mortar was gouged and new pestle carved. A drying rack was tied carefully will be displayed near our wigwam. Deer scapulas, antlers, hooves and leg bones were collected locally for this workshop.
These beautiful new props will be used during school, scout and summer camp Lenape programs.
