Native New Yorkers!
Lenape, the people, are the original stewards of what is now occupied New York. Despite the mass genocide, ethnic cleansing, and war crimes committed against the Indigenous peoples of these lands for centuries, the Lenape are still here thousands of miles away in what is now occupied Oklahoma. Still present. Still breathing. Still singing. Still making. Still dancing. Still living. Still loving. Still being. We welcome the return of our lands and our return to lënapehòkink.
Lenapeowsi Foundation is dedicated to sustain and develop Lenape language, culture, and society. Lenapeowsi means to live the Lenape way and we serve all three Lenape Nations' Children, Elders, and People.
