Hear a real Lenape speaker say “my good home” with the Lenape Talking Dictionary the official online talking dictionary for the Delaware Tribe’s native language. The Lenape lived in the New York City region at the time of European discovery 400 years ago and now live today mainly in Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Canada, though Lenape (Delaware) people live in the New York City region today too. Our project name, Welikia, means “my good home” in Lenape. They might have said it of their home, and we feel the same about the boroughs of New York City today.
