The Lenape[]

The Lenape, also known as the Lenni Lenape or Delaware, are an indigenous people of the Northeastern Woodlands of America. their historical territory included present-day northeastern Delaware, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania along the Delaware River watershed, New York City, western Long Island, and the Lower Hudson Valley. The Lenape have a matrilineal clan system and historically were matrilocal. During the last decades of the 18th century, most Lenape were removed from their homeland by expanding European colonies. The divisions and troubles of the American Revolutionary War and United States' independence pushed them farther west.


Tamanend, known also as Tammany, was Chief of the Turtle Clan of the Lenape in the Delaware Valley. He is known for his signing the Peace Treaty with William Penn, English colonist and founder of the Province of Pennsylvania. Tamanend is best known today as a lover of peace and friendship. The historical facts about Tamanend are based on some eight documents from the first fourteen years of Pennsylvania history.

Dawn of Man[]

Hail, Tamanend, chief of the Lenape, American hero and lover of peace. Your tribe was one of the first in what would become the United States to have extended contact with the Europeans from across the sea. A peaceful man, you worked with William Penn, an English colonist, in the pursuit of peace, declaring peace for as long as the waters run in the rivers and creeks and as long as the stars and moon endure. With Penn, you signed eight treaties which you hoped would define a peace for lifetimes to come. And while your dream may not have fully come to pass, during your lifetime you worked tireless for your tribe and for peace. It was for this reason you became an American hero, becoming a symbol in American Revolution, and even being named the Patron Saint of America for your prominence in Philadelphia.

Chief Tamanend, your people once again wish for peace and tranquillity. It has been a very long a very hard time, with treaties violated, promises broken, and distrust on all sides. Your people desire a peace broker to come forth and lead all tribes of the Lenape to prosperity. Can you help your people to peace and prosperity? Will you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?

Introduction: "Welcome to the Lenapehoking. Here, we are one head and one heart."

Defeat: "Owning land is like owning the ocean, or the air. No one owns land, and neither will you."
