Presented in collaboration with The Lenape Center, host Jocelyn Getgen Kestenbaum is joined by co-directors Brent Michael Davids and Curtis Zunigha. The group will tune in live from Wisconsin and Oklahoma at their respective Lenape nations, who bring home the understanding of diaspora and forced migrations from present-day New York City.
Further guests include Lenape Center Executive Director Joe Baker, who will speak to real time work and movements happening in regard to these locations; and Todd Poisson, lead architect of the newly revamped Tammany Hall (which pays homage to the Turtle Clan of the Lenape Tribe) discusses the reopening. The Lenape Center co-director Hadrien Coumans also joins.
