Nahova: Temporary Exhibition at Alapocas Run

Nahova is a painter influenced by Abstract Impressionism who creates timeless pieces that reflect her past and current experiences.

Winter Tavern Tales: Medicinal Plants at Alapocas Run

Join Roger Mustalish and Chief Dennis Coker for a disussion on Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Healthcare: Health and Healing Traditions of the Lenape-Then and Now. The Lenape people of Delaware and the surrounding region developed complex, rich and sophisticated health and healing traditions with the use of native medicinal plants at their core. This program will explore these traditions in two parts. The first part of the program will introduce the plants through a -virtual plant walk- that formed the basis for Lenape healing traditions, with a focus on plant diversity, the part of the plant that was used, how it was prepared, and for what conditions it was used. The second part of the program will include a hands-on portion during which contemporary medicinal plant preparations will be presented and experienced. A major take away from this presentation will be that while the health and healing traditions of the Lenape people go back millennia, they also exist today, and the contributions of the Lenape people have been well integrated into our mainstream approach to holistic health and wellness.
