Lenape women

A love poem into lenape (Unami), for the amerindians girls of this tribe, in the Delaware, on the Hudson, and Long Island.

The Lenapes

The French called the Lenapes the Wolves. They lived in what they called the Lenapehoking (the Lenape country), a wooded region, covered with rivers and dotted with lakes. The lenape country would currently correspond to New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, south eastern New York state, and northern Delaware.
