Lehigh Valley Native American Learning Tour

May 6, 2017 (Saturday, 9:00am to 4:00pm) This one-day Learning Tour is designed to shed light on early Native American life and settlements in the Lehigh Valley. Join us as we view the historic Jasper Pits in Vera Cruz, see Lee Hallman’s personal collection of artifacts and visit the Museum of Indian Culture of which Hallman is curator. Mennonite historians John Ruth and Darvin Martin will join Curtis Book in reflecting on the intersection that the Doctrine of Discovery had on early Mennonites, other settlers and Native Americans in 18th Century Lehigh Valley, Pa. Organized by the Mennonite Central Committee. See the details here.
