The Lenape people are indigenous to Lenapehoking, the Lenape name for the Lenape land, which includes all of New York City, and spans from western Connecticut to eastern Pennsylvania, and the Hudson Valley to Delaware.  Due to centuries of colonization perpetuated by genocide and forced displacement, today the Lenape Diaspora is dispersed throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Lenape Diaspora includes Federally recognized nations in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario.  Join Services for Older Adults, in partnership with the Lenape Center, as we present Mr. Hadrien Coumans, Co-founder and Co-director of the Lenape Center, who will lead a discussion on the topics of Lenape history and culture as well as the Center's contemporary efforts of continuance and return to the homeland. He will also share information on the honor and significance of working with Lenape elders.  Register now!  You will receive the Zoom link on the morning of the program.
