Long before New Jersey was known for its malls and highways, the state was inhabited by the Lenape Indians.  John Kraft, the creator and director of Lenape Lifeways, will give presentations that focus on the culture of the Lenape Indians. Mr. Kraft uses authentic and recreated objects to teach about Lenape masks, clothing, musical instruments, and tools.  Other activities include making a cornhusk doll, weaving, touching Native American Artifacts, and learning about Native American legends and constellations.  For more information, please email
