Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
We openly recognize the Lenape Indian tribe as the original inhabitants of eastern Pennsylvania who were forcibly removed from their homelands, a territory known as “Lenapehoking,” Many who remained were forced into hiding or to assimilate. We acknowledge the Lenape people as the indigenous stewards of their homelands and also the spiritual keepers of the Lenape Sipu, or Delaware river, and call attention to their current efforts to spread awareness of their traditions and cultures. We do hereby commit to actively support our Lenape sisters and brothers in whatever way we are able, helping to maintain the cultural identity of the Lenape Nation in Philadelphia as well as Lenape Nations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario.
