UPDATES (posted 8/6/22):

  • There will be NO class on Friday August 19th.
  • The class time will be changing to 1:30pm-2:30pm beginning Friday Sept. 2nd.

Every Friday - Join us to learn conversational Lenape language! Learn to carry on a simple conversation in the Lenape language, as it was spoken on the East Coast before colonization. Topics include:

  • Some basic greetings
  • Please and thank you
  • How are you doing? I am...
  • What is your name? My name is...
  • Who/what is it? Animals and things
  • Are you hungry? Foods
  • What color is it? Basic colors

By the end of the class, you will have joined the growing ranks of practical Lenape speakers and contributed to the revitalization of a nearly lost language.

Teri Hislop is a member of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania. She is part of the current project to revitalize the Lenape Language (Unami dialect). She is a Native Storyteller, flutist, beadworkers and pine needle basket maker.
