Indigenous American Folk Art
November 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Pelham Art Center invites the community to come engage with the cultural traditions of local Indigenous American peoples. Members of the Matinecock Tribe of Queens and Long Island, Turkey clan Chief Reggie Ceaser and artist Tecumseh Ceaser will introduce attendees to local Native American history, culture and customs. The two will share their heritage through interactive learning experiences and discussions to provide insight into New York City’s Native American history and perspectives. These presentations serve as a unique educational opportunity by allowing the audience to learn about the original people of the borough of Queens and the local tribes of the metropolitan area. They also create a space to connect with the indigenous people of the land on which many of them live and work each day.
