Exploring the Lost City of Norumbega
A Workshop with author Evan Pritchard (Native New Yorkers)
In this deep-history workshop, Evan will reveal many astounding secrets about Manhattan’s Native American and early contact period history. We will discuss how Manhattan was Nu Schodack the capital of the Mohican Nation; how its capitol city was built on a hill at Broadway and Worth Street, now long missing; how Canal Street used to be the Lapinikan (“Dividing”)River, which divided Manhattan into two; how natives built a causeway across a lake caused by an earthquake to divide salty water from fresh, , and how early French explorers built a trading post long before the Dutch and called it “Norumbega,” or “Enormous Cliff.” If you liked the film “National Treasure” you will love this because it’s real. (Shovels not included)

Cost: $20 if registered and prepaid by Nov 9th; $25 if registering after the 9th.
