    We acknowledge that Rowan University rests on Native American land that is part of the traditional territory of the Lenni-Lenape, called Lenapehoking. We acknowledge the Lenni-Lenape as the original people of this land and their continuing relationship with their territory. During the colonial era and early federal period, many were removed west and north, but some also remain among the continuing historical tribal communities of the region: The Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation; the Ramapough Lenape Nation; and the Powhatan Renape Nation, The Nanticoke of Millsboro Delaware, and the Lenape of Cheswold Delaware. We recognize their historic desire for harmony among the indigenous people of this land, descendants of immigrants, and descendants of the enslaved brought here forcibly, “as long as the rivers and creeks flow, and the sun, moon, and stars shine” (Lenape Chief Tamanend). We acknowledge that we work, teach, and learn here, and bear responsibility to engage meaningfully in relationship with the tribal community of the Lenni-Lenape people on their homeland.
