The Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware
The Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware formed a constitutional Tribal Government in March, 2010. We are a member of the Confederation of Sovereign Nentego-Lenape Tribes, which is an intertribal union between our Tribe, the Nanticoke Tribe in Sussex County, DE, and the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indian Tribe (headquartered in Bridgeton, New Jersey) with which we are historically and genealogically interrelated.
Our Tribal Constitution provides a structure for a Sovereign Tribal Government and is the acknowledged standard at the national level.
The Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware was also granted State Designated Tribal Area status for the purpose of the Federal 2010 US Census.
