MONROE, NJ - Join us as the Middlesex County Office of Cultural & Heritage welcomes Trinity Norwood, a citizen of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Nation of New Jersey, as she presents a hands-on workshop where participants will have the opportunity to make their own corn husk doll to take home and to learn the cultural history of this inter-tribal folk tradition.
The program will take place on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at 2 p.m. and will be held at the Lodge at Monroe’s Thompson Park, located at 1701 Perrineville Road.
Trinity Norwood is the creator and program coordinator for Native New Jersey, an organization whose goal is to spread awareness about Native American culture.
“The Office of Cultural and Heritage has always worked to bring our residents a full array of authentic, diverse, and educational activities,” said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “I know that Ms. Norwood’s program will continue this tradition and that participants will have a lot to learn.”
“This should be a fun and educational event for the fall season,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee. “I hope many residents will attend and enjoy its cultural aspects.”
Registration is required for this event. To register, please call 732.745.4489.
