Dyckman Discussions Panel Series: Indigenous Communities of Upper Manhattan and the Hudson Valley at Holy Trinity Church

Dyckman Discussions: Indigenous Communities of Upper Manhattan
April 1, 2023 at 2PM
Location: Holy Trinity Church Inwood

Dyckman Discussions is a two year discussion series focusing on exploring topics in New York history, such as forced removal of indigenous people, Dutch colonization, enslaved labor, and immigration. “Indigenous Communities of Upper Manhattan,” is the second panel in a series of 5 taking place in 2023.

More about the panel: The city of New York has yet to reckon with its history of marginalizing indigenous people of Manhattan Island – specifically the Lenape and Algonquin-speaking communities of the Northeast. Chaired by Christian Ayne Crouch (Bard College), this panel casts a light on the traditional practices, customs, and traditions of indigenous people. This will include a discussion of diaspora, as many of these communities were forced north, or west, as a result of the encroachment from European and American migrants.

Discusiones Dyckman:

Comunidades Indígenas del Alto Manhattan
Primero de abril del 2023 a las 2:00 pm.
Lugar: Iglesia de la Santísima Trinidad Inwood.

Discusiones Dyckman es una serie de debates de dos años que se centra en la exploración de temas de la historia de Nueva York, como la expulsión forzosa de indígenas, la colonización holandesa, la mano de obra de los esclavos y la inmigración. “Comunidades indígenas del Alto Manhattan” es el segundo panel de una serie de cinco paneles que tendrán lugar en el 2023.

Más sobre el panel: La ciudad de Nueva York aún tiene que contar su historia de marginación de los pueblos indígenas de la Isla de Manhattan, específicamente las comunidades de habla lenape y algonquin del noreste. Presidido por Christian Ayne Crouch (Bard College), este panel resalta las prácticas, costumbres y tradiciones de los pueblos indígenas. Esto incluirá una discusión sobre la diáspora, ya que muchas de estas comunidades fueron forzadas al norte o al oeste, como resultado de la invasión de inmigrantes europeos y estadounidenses.



The non-profit Opera Lafayette brings its program “Opera Starts with Oh!” to the United Palace Sunday, March 19th from 11am-noon for children K-12.

The session will explore the recently finished opera “Io” by Jean Philippe Rameau, which Opera Lafayette will perform with de La Garde’s “Léandre et Héro” on May 9 at El Museo del Barrio in East Harlem.

The workshop at the United Palace will feature professional singer, instrumentalist, actor, and director Paul Shipper teaching participants what it means to be a musician expressing their emotions through sound. Soprano and voice teacher Erinn Sensenig will take participants on a journey into “Io’s” arias, offering everyone a chance to try out their own opera signing in a real theater. Participants will also get to create a costume piece to continue the fun at home.

“Opera Starts with Oh!” operates on a pay-what-you can model to ensure equity in its programming. Each participant will need their own ticket as space is limited. Parents/guardians must remain with their child(ren) during the entire workshop.
