Croton Arboretum

Native American crafts expert Barry Keegan will demonstrate firemaking, flint knapping and other skills to recreate the daily life of the Leni Lenape people, who lived in the Croton area at the time of Henry Hudson’s voyage. He will also display his collection of Native American and colonial artifacts along with authentic replicas of bows, arrows, axes, buckskin, fire-making tools and pottery. Rain or shine on Saturday, October 20, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Here's a wonderful short film about Barry's 2011 visit, made by Arboretum board member Ken Sargeant.
