Lenapehoking

Lenapehoking is a term for the lands historically inhabited by the Native American people known as the Lenape (named the Delaware people or Delaware Nation by early European settlers) in what is now the Northeastern United States. Many Lenape remain in the area the Lenape inhabited called Scheyischbi(New Jersey), or 'the place bordering the ocean'. According to some people, the Lenape called this territory "Lenapehoking" (lənape haki-nk), meaning 'in the land of the Lenape'. This area included Northern Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island and the entirety of New Jersey. Welcome to Lenapehoking, Land Of the Lenape. These are the families that NEVER LEFT.
