Contributors to A Lenapehoking Anthology explore the personal journeys of people seeking welcome in their ancestral homeland while pushing back against their own erasure.

Before New York City, there was Lenapehoking, the ancestral land of the Lenape people. Forcibly displaced by European settlers, their land was stolen to create settler states. Now, in an act of reclamation, A Lenapehoking Anthology, recently published by the Lenape Center and the Brooklyn Public Library, contends with subjects ranging from the myth of the purchase of Manhattan to the self-curation of indigenous art and culture.

Lenape Center co-founders and co-directors Joe Baker, Curtis Zunigha, and Hadrien Coumans will join each other in conversation.

Printed by Ugly Duckling Presse, the Anthology will be available to attendees to take home.

Venue: New York Public Library - Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library
