CLARK — Lenape Lifeways paid a visit to the fourth graders at Frank K Hehnly School in Clark. The purpose of the visit was to present traditional Lenape life in the Eastern Woodlands homeland to the students by focusing on everyday village activities and the roles of men, women and children within the family and community. The sharing of drawings and photographs highlighted to the fourth graders how the Lenape dressed, built shelters, grew crops, fished, hunted, cooked, made tools and weapons, treated disease, grew up and more.
