Lesson Plans and Resources related to the Cultural Communities video program
What cultures were represented during the early days of our county's history? What were some of their difficulties? How did they interact? This program gives insight into the lives of the early European settlers and American Indians. The reenactors speak in the words of the historical figures taken from their diaries, newspapers, and other accounts from the time. Nine vignettes including William Little, Laura Carpenter, Reverend Finley, Benjamin Franklin Thomas, Dolly Bxybe, American Indian games, Drake's Defeat, Africa, Ohio, and dance inspired by Lenni Lenape traditions are narrated to guide the audience from 1770-1850 Delaware, Ohio. An artifact program with items people of this time period would have used is linked at the end of the program.****This program won the 2021 Award for public programs from the Ohio Local History Alliance.
