We are located in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, an area that is part of what was Lenni-Lenapé territory. The Lenni-Lenape apparently were friendly and accommodating, until the settlers gradually — and often violently, forced them from their territory. We acknowledge the mistreatment indigenous people faced as a result of colonialism and recognize that they practiced many of the same values we hold, including respect and regenerative stewardship of the land and other living things, eating healthy natural foods, social justice and restorative practices, and community-based participatory decision-making.
Descendants of the Lenni-Lenape are now known as the Delaware people and are based primarily in Oklahoma.
