Land Acknowledgement

A Land Acknowledgement is a formal statement that recognizes and respects Indigenous Peoples as traditional stewards of this land and the enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories.

We acknowledge the land on which we occupy today as the traditional home of the LeNape tribal nation, also known as the Delaware People are Indigenous people of the Northeastern Woodlands, who live in Canada and the United States.

Today, LeNape people belong to the Delaware Nation and Delaware Tribe of Indians. Their historical territory includes present-day New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania along the Delaware River watershed, New York City, western Long Island and the Lower Hudson Valley.
