    Lenape Native American River Journey & Treaty Signing

    On August 24th, 2002 an historic event took place at the Pennsbury Manor, the former estate of William Penn in Morrisville, that marked a new beginning of brotherhood between the Lenape Nation Indian Tribe of Pennsylvania and the people that neighbor the Delaware River. A treaty of renewed brotherhood was signed by the Lenape and a number of organizations: environmental groups, churches, historical societies, and sincerely committed individuals, who wish actively to support the Lenape and to partner as caretakers of the traditional Lenape homeland and each other. The signing was prefaced by an equally historic and monumental three-week canoe journey, which began at the top of the Delaware River in Hancock, NY and culminated in Cape May, NJ. It was agreed that the re-signing of the Treaty, as well as the River Journey, should take place every four years. It has since been conducted in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018 with ever-increasing spirit and vigor.

    It is now 2022 and time to make that wonderful journey, both physically and in spirit, once again! This year’s trip began in Hancock, New York, on Saturday, July 30th, and culminates on August 20th in Cape May, New Jersey. There are currently 13 public treaty-signing events scheduled, some of which include:

    • Friday, August 5th: Phoenix Gift Shop, Dingman’s Ferry PA;
