        First Encounters: The Lenape, Henry Hudson, and the Power of Objects | Treasures of New York: "Museum of the City of New York"

        Explore how the power of objects opens up new perspectives on history in this video from Treasures of New York: “Museum of the City of New York.” A Lenape ceremonial club takes center stage as curators of a new exhibit examine the artifact and discuss its importance in understanding early encounters between the Lenape tribe and Dutch explorers like Henry Hudson. Support materials include a background essay, lesson plan, student handout, discussion questions, and teaching tips.

        The Museum of the City of New York has a nearly 100 year history, from its first days operating out of Gracie Mansion to the recent opening of its ambitious new permanent exhibition, New York at Its Core. Since its founding, the museum has worked to display, explore, and celebrate New York City’s past, present, and future.
