Lenape The Lenape were Delaware Indians that lived in an area called “Lenapehoking,” which means “Land of the Lenape.” Their land included all of what is now New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, southeastern New York State, northern Delaware and a small section of southeastern Connecticut. Lenapehoking had many rivers, streams, lakes, forests, and wild life. We now know that two related but distinct groups of Indians lived in Lenapehoking. Some of the Lenape lived in large villages of 300 people, but most of them lived in small groups of 25 to 50 people. Families were important to the Lenape Indians. There were strong ties between parents and children. The Lenape had three clans are Wolf, Turtle and Turkey – which traced their descent through the female line. If a mother belonged to the Turtle Clan, then each of her children were in that clan. The sons had to marry women from other clans, and their children belonged to their mother’s clan.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
