This group will meet every Friday, EXCEPT for the following dates:
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, beadworker, and pine needle-basket maker.
