Mark your calendars for the "Lumbees of Philadelphia project" celebration in Philadelphia on 9/17
Mark your calendars for the "Lumbees of Philadelphia project" celebration and a Native American community archiving day in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 17th. The event will celebrate and share American Indian stories and experiences from the City of Brotherly Love. All are welcome!
Please bring any family photos, newspaper clippings, documents, etc. relating to your family's experiences in Philadelphia. They are scheduled to have a team of archivists on site who will digitize your items. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear from Dr. Ashley Minner and Dr. Malinda Maynor Lowery, who will be speaking about their own research on Lumbee history.
The Native American House Alliance will also be hosting a powwow at Penn Treaty Park on Sunday, September 18th.
Special thanks Jessica Markey Locklear, the Leeway Foundation, the Native American House Alliance, and the Special Collections Research Center at Temple University for making this possible.
