April 22, 2018, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Historic New Bridge Landing
The Bergen County Historical Society celebrates "Under the Shad Moon, Chwame Gischuch, the Lenape New Year." 1:30 pm: Dr. Meta Janowitz will speak on Native American food ways, as they relate to the Dutch. She will introduce ceramic forms that were used by the Dutch and traded with the Native Americans. 2:30 pm: Primitive Technologist Steve Adams will give a talk on The Material Culture of Prehistory. Adams will talk on the use of stone tools; their manufacture (flintknapping), forms for different functions, re-usage/re-sharpening sequences, the 'waste flake' pile of expedient tools and the changing stone tool forms through time. His talk will move outside to demonstrate flintknapping. Selections from the BCHS Native American collections are on exhibit. Visit the outkitchen where reenactors will be cooking over a fire. The event includes activities for children.
