Monument to Lenape tribe planned in Pennsylvania

A monument to the Lenape tribe will be built in Easton, Pennsylvania, the traditional territory of the Lenape, or Delaware, people.

The bronze monument will feature a turtle as its base. A 12-foot-high circle will be placed on top of the turtle's shell.

Some Lenape descendants still live in Pennsylvania although most live in Oklahoma, where there ancestors were forced to move. The Delaware Nation and the Delaware Tribe are based in Oklahoma.
