Let us tell our history and share our knowledge.

Since 2009, Lenape Center has been committed to resisting the erasure of the Lenape people in their ancestral homeland of NYC and the greater Northeast through efforts to preserve, promote, and create Lenape arts, culture, and language (Unami). As a Lenape-led organization, together we offer the history, knowledge, and perspective that is unavailable in the literature today.

The leaders of Lenape Center speak regularly at events for a variety of audiences including the general public, educators, health and social service providers, students, community organizations, NGOs, foundations, and corporations. We are also available for virtual presentations. Please reach out with inquiries via email
