Watch how the AMNH ahas added new interpretive panels to address historical inaccuracies and introduce new perspectives for understanding Native Americans (including emphasizing that they still exist today!)

The Museum has added new interpretation to the Old New York diorama in the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall. Large-scale labels on the glass now add context and highlight misrepresentations of the Lenape, the Native people whose ancestral homeland included New York City. Hear from visual historian Bradley Pecore, Curator Peter Whiteley, and Vice President for Exhibition Lauri Halderman about the importance of adding a modern cultural perspective to a 1939 scene.
