Museum of the City of New York

The Museum of the City of New York once again organizes the popular  course for educators Native New York.

Explore the history and legacies of early New York through guided workshops, lectures with thought-provoking guest speakers, and primary source analysis. Learn about the cultural, economic, and political relationships between the Lenape and the Dutch in the 16th and 17th centuries and uncover the lasting legacies these interactions have had on New York City today. The course is online—and free! If participants wish to take the course for P Credit, they must still pay ASPDP’s course fee. Registration is required, seats are limited.

For registration instructions and information about P Credits through ASPDP, please see the website of the Museum of the City of New York.
