Lenape Land Acknowledgment

Lenape, meaning “the people,” are the original peoples of Lenapehoking: New Jersey, Delaware, southern New York, eastern Pennsylvania, and western Connecticut. The School at Columbia University respectfully acknowledges that our school is situated on the ancestral Lenape island of Manaháhtaan, “the place for gathering the wood to make bows,” in Lenapehoking. The TSC community pays respect to and recognizes our continuing connection to Lenape land, language, arts, culture, ancestors and their descendants.
