Ohio Humans

We Are Here, a collaboration between our neighbors at PA Humanities and Keystone Edge, is a podcast about Pennsylvanians making their mark. This week, we’re thrilled to share the series’ sixth episode, “The Lenape Come Home to Pennsylvania.”

For thousands of years before the arrival of European settlers, the Lenape thrived in the Delaware Valley. Centuries of displacement followed, and now a repatriation project aims to heal old wounds. In this installment, We Are Here host Lee Stabert speaks with Jeremy Johnson, Cultural Education Director of the Delaware Tribe of Indians, and Doug Miller, site administrator of Pennsbury Manor historic site in Bucks County, about giving the tribe’s ancestral remains and artifacts a final resting place.

If you’d like to learn more about the history and legacy of the Lenape, visit delawaretribe.org, and to plan a visit to Pennsbury Manor, head over to their website.

And, later this year, join us for The Ohio Country, a forthcoming series from WYSO Public Radio and funded by Ohio Humanities.  Native men and women from different tribes and their allies—plus teachers, artists, scholars, parents, landowners, foresters, young people, and historians, too—will tell their stories about the about the lands above the Ohio River, known as the Ohio Country. You can listen in this feed, at WYSO.org, ohiohumanities.org, and in all those other places where you get podcasts.
