Indigenous New Jersey presented by Dr. Jameson Sweet of Rutgers University
This presentation examines the history of interactions between settlers and Indigenous people in New Jersey, particularly the Lenape Nation and their continuing presence today. Using often violent and coercive tactics, Dutch, British, and American settlers dispossessed the Lenape people of their land, resulting in a broad diaspora of Lenape communities in Canada and the U.S. Some Lenape people remained in New Jersey and maintain their communities today.
