Product Overview

Through first-person accounts, Long Journey Home presents the stories ofthe Lenape, also known as the Delaware Tribe. These oral histories, which span thepost--Civil War era to the present, are gathered into four sections and tell ofpersonal and tribal events as they unfold over time and place. The history of theLenape is one of forced displacement, from their original tribal home along theeastern seaboard into Pennsylvania, continuing with a series of displacements inOhio, Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, and the Indian Territory. For the group of Lenapeinterviewed for this book, home is now the area around Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Thestories of their long journey have been handed down and remain part of the tribe''scollective memory and bring an unforgettable immediacy to the tale of the Lenape.Above all they make clear that the history of seven generations remains very muchalive.
