Land Acknowledgment as practice is found globally and particularly in nations such as New Zealand, Australia and Canada. Lenape Center, indigenous to Lenapehoking, which includes New York City, has introduced Living Land Acknowledgment. As a means of evolving Land Acknowledgment, Living Land Acknowledgment aligns Lenape values with the acknowledgment process to create a sustainable model.

Often perceived to be a part of “decolonization” and “indigeniety” the foundation of Land Acknowledgment is ancient in origin. Living Land Acknowledgment offers the ability for non-indigenous peoples to assert the interconnectivity and oneness of original people and place, for the purpose of justice, equity, respect, and collective healing. Lenape Center, for the last ten years, has been pushing back against the profound effects of the void and erasure of the Lenape in Lenapehoking, the result of colonization.

Lenape Center is pleased to offer its dynamic and creative workshop on Living Land Acknowledgment. The comprehensive workshop will inform you and your organization on the following:

  • Lenape history
  • Lenape culture
  • Colonization
  • Lenape protocol for Living Land Acknowledgment
  • Understanding equity, true inclusivity, and continuation
  • Applying sustainable multi-generational commitment to Land Acknowledgment
  • A menu of Land Acknowledgement options
  • The Living Land Acknowledgment creation

The Lenape Center is a non-profit with the mission of continuing Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland, through Lenape community, culture and the arts.
