The Lenape are the traditional people of this land. Their ancestral homelands stretch from what is now known as southern New York to Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania to the New Jersey Shore.
This exhibition arises from the traditional Lenape prophecy of The Fourth Crow, which tells a story of harmony, contact, suffering, survival, and resilient resurgence. As you navigate the gallery space in a counterclockwise fashion, moving from east to north to west to south, you are guided by this prophecy and the movement of the crows. It is a journey of language and translation, loss and remembering, playfulness and resilience, reckoning and encounter.
