Teacher Workshop: Native Americans in New York SOLD OUT

Thursday, February 27, 2020

9 am–3 pm

Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Public Library

This event is sold out.

Examine the different ways that Native American history in New York has been told, who has told it, and how it has changed over time in this teacher professional development workshop. Receive a guided tour of the Brooklyn Museum's special exhibition Jeffrey Gibson: When Fire Is Applied to a Stone It Cracks and related archival materials with Molly Seegers, Museum Archivist, and learn about the history—and challenges—of displaying Native American works.

During the second part of the day, held at Brooklyn Public Library, educators discuss bias in history and explore educational resources that can be used to thoughtfully and responsibly engage students with Native American histories as well as culture today. Hadrien Coumans, Co-Director, Lenape Center, located in Manhattan, speaks about the enduring influence of Lenape arts and culture in New York City.

This workshop is offered in conjunction with Brooklyn Public Library's Brooklyn Connections.

Registration is $20 and available through Brooklyn Public Library.
