The Tribal Realities of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape

June 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Refusing to leave their ancestral homeland, Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape family clans remained in South Jersey when other Native American tribes were forced west. Fast forward to today, the history of the tribe continues to unfold. During the 1970s, self-governance shifted from tribal churches to a constitutional form of government. In this session, the last forty years will be considered, while paying attention to the cultural traditions that are being reclaimed in the present. Also, the tribe’s relationship with Christianity and their political status with the state and federal governments will be explored.

Presented by Jeremy Newman, Associate Professor of Communications at Stockton University
