Native Americans: How They Met Their Basic Needs (Ages 10 & Up)

Date/Time
Date(s) - Saturday, October 22
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Categories


Saturday, October 22 at 1 PM in the large meeting room.

Families and children ages 10 and up are welcome to attend.

Join the Hudson Highland Nature Museum to learn how inhabitants of Orange County provided for themselves 400 years ago.

The original inhabitants of this area, the Lenape, were skillful at meeting basic needs using the resources of nature. Learn what Henry Hudson would have discovered upon meeting these Native Americans. Through the use of actual artifacts and replicas, we will explore how these resourceful people obtained food, clothing, and shelter.  Topics covered include…

  • Hunting and gathering for food

  • Basic structure of shelters such as the long house and wic-a-wam

  • Construction of tools from stone, bone, and wood

  • Clothing made from skins and pelts

The program concludes with a traditional Native American tale of the Hunted Songbirds which teaches the lesson of harvesting from nature only what one requires to meet basic needs of survival.

Space is limited. Please register online at: https://moffatlibrary.org/events-calendar/ or call (845) – 496 – 5483 ext. 325 if you have any questions or need assistance registering for this event.
