An interview by Urban Omnibus, a publication of the Architectural League of New York with Joe Baker and Hadrien Coumans. This interview was done following the completion of the turtle shell above Tammany Hall in Union Square, and is one of the first publications where Lenape Center was invited to share their story in their own words.
"...But beyond recognizing the past, Lenape culture is pointed toward future generations. We spoke with Joe Baker and Hadrien Coumans, co-founders and co-directors (with Brent Michael Davids and Curtis Zunigha) of the Lenape Center, about their efforts to bring the original peoples and their culture back home in the 21st century."
