TEANECK N.J. -- A Native-American Heritage Month celebration is planned on Sunday at the Teaneck Creek Conservancy.

Activities take place from 3-7 p.m. on Nov. 20, courtesy of the Teaneck Creek Conservancy in partnership with the Puffin Cultural forum and the Ramapough Conservancy.

Activities include,

  • 3 p.m. Lunaape language class with Karen Mosko.
