The Lenape Indians

For thousands of years, along rivers and streams in what is now known as the Delaware Valley, villages made up of oval and rectangular bark wigwams could be found. Children were seen running, squealing in delight, and playing games with one another. The women of the village, in knee length skirts, were seen tending to the farm, cooking and caring for the children. The men, donning their breechcloths and leggings, hunted, fished and traded to provide for their families. These communities were known as the Lenni Lenape Indians, translated as “the true people.”

The Lenape Indians aka Delaware Indians lived in relatively permanent villages along the waterways in the Delaware Valley. They would travel in dug out canoes for trading furs or gathering supplies to aid farms.
