Continuing Lenapehoking, the Lenape Homeland

Lenape Center takes part in the maintenance and welfare of the people at this time. We set aside all scheduled programs and events. Now is the time to un-engage, to be silent, to return to the creative center. Lenapehoking stands today as before: strong, resilient and enduring.

Cultural continuance


Lenape Center has the mission of continuing Lenapehoking,
the Lenape homeland through community, culture and the arts.

Since 2008, Lenape Center based in Manhattan and led by Lenape elders has created programs, exhibitions, workshops, performances, symposia, land acknowledgment and ceremonies to continue our Lenape presence. We push back against our erasure and seed the ground with Lenape consciousness for the next generations.
