Lenape Center has the mission of continuing Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland through community, culture, and the arts. Since 2008, Lenape Center based in Manhattan and led by Lenape elders has created programs, exhibitions, workshops, performances, symposia, land acknowledgment, and ceremonies to continue our Lenape presence. We push back against our erasure and seed the ground with Lenape consciousness for the next generations.
