Our Editor-in-Chief and primary author and researcher, Swiftwater Thomas F. Hahn, died Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007. 

He was closely connected with his Native American heritage and was a former Chief of the Kansas Delaware Tribe of Indians.

There was a memorial service and Life Celebration in Fort Myers Florida, on the side of a river in Fort Myers, Florida, where he had lived for ten years and spent much time authoring, organizing and researching the material you see on this website.  Thanks Swiftwater, may you find new meaning and wonder on a distant shore.

He was a good father, and mentor.  I miss him.  Chris Hahn (cfhahn@lenapedelawarehistory.net)

The Red Road
Current mood: grateful

 I lost a dear friend this week, Tom Hahn. Tom often spoke about this spiritual road we share - it was the red road because of our Delaware Indian heritage. We often spoke about our roads in this journey we know as life.

  Thank you for sharing this road that all of us must walk upon even though the time was brief. You helped me to see there were trees and other interesting things to stop and see along the way :)  I was plodding along on some colorless, invisible road but you helped me to see there can be color, trees and clouds or anything else I want or need to see along this path life is guiding me.  Thank you for your gift of friendship.  I will never forget you. Somehow I know your spirit will still be here some where as I walk on this  road for whatever time life gives me.

Karen Lynn May 2007


O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
the fruited plain!
America! America!

 Web Site of Lenape-Delaware History. Our Internet Address is: http://www.lenapedelawarehistory.net/mirror. This is a volunteer, non-profit, non-affiliated , historical research site. Our concentration is on the Lenape (Delaware) -- an Algonquian language-based people -- of North America. The site as of 1 September contained the equivalent of 2,266 printed pages, including hundreds of images. Our Archive Site is a good place to go for easy access and printing. http://lenapedelawarehistory.net/archive/lenapedelawarehistory.pdf  It is created about once a month, or so, so the latest pages will not be in it. The archive site will not  work for you unless you have a high speed cable connection.

This site is not sponsored by nor is it affiliated with any Lenape-Delaware Tribe or Nation nor by any other Native American organization. See the bottom of this page for a further explanation of the purpose of this web site. Editor

General Information about the Web Site and the Conditions under which the Web Site is Published:

Lenape-Delaware History: http://lenapedelawarehistory.net is a website that covers such subjects as Bibliography, Biographies, Chronology of Delaware Events, Genealogy, History, Personalities, and Treaties of the Lenape-Delaware and Munsee of the United States.  Data for this website was compiled through the extensive research of Thomas Swiftwater Hahn, historian and former chief of the Kansas Delaware Tribe of Indians. The website is administered by the Kansas Delaware Tribe of Indians. Email corrections, additions to data, comments on design to the website technician: jimgrinter@gmail.com.
The data contained herein are based both on documents and other data that are available in both open sources in the public domain and from various individuals.   The format in which we present the information, comments, or notes, etc. is copyrighted and is intended for the reader's personal family research only. It may not be reproduced for profit or without the permission of the individual researcher/s and the web site owners. This restriction is necessary to prevent unscrupulous persons from selling or misusing family information. The major purpose is to make information available as starting points for  those working on their family histories and/or on Lenape-Delaware history. A secondary purpose is to provide a place where research regarding the Lenape-Delaware can take place. For privacy reasons, data will not be given for living persons without their permission.  No current tribal roll information will be used without the permission of the proper officials of any tribe or nation. We  will make no judgments regarding the legitimacy of any Lenape-Delaware Tribe or Nation or any other Native American or indigenous entity. We merely reflect what they say about themselves in their web sites and/or elsewhere.

Wherein possible, we have included the e-mail link to the researcher/s who has/have worked on a particular item. That person is responsible for the accuracy of his/her research. S/he should be contacted regarding the details of the source or the particulars of the data, because s/he is in the best position to handle relevant questions. The editor is responsible for the overall content and well being of Lenape-Delaware History. All of us working on this site dedicated to our subject. We are all volunteers. As in all historical research, we do  not vouch for the validity of the data of the sources we are using, but we are responsible for providing them when they are available.  We would like to emphasize that though we publish  recorded history, we are equally equally concerned with the process of  historical research itself. We are always open to the correction of data and welcome new data.

Please note that we  acknowledging the name or e-mail address of the provider of photographs and other images with the term "Provided by _______." That does not necessarily mean that the sender holds the original or has done the research to obtain it. It only provides a contact point for the person wanting to know more about the photograph or to make an attempt to obtain a copy.  Similarly, the contact point for each entry in the site is the Lenape-Delaware History researcher who is the primary contact point. That person acts as the "clearing station" for that bit of historical research, but s/he may not necessarily be the one who is the expert on the subject. We are striving to attain a web site that is simple to maintain, one that provides the reader with somewhere to go beyond what  is contained in the site, to give and to provide  credit where it is due, and to protect privacy where it is requested.

Proper  names will  be in a bold, black color. For anyone having difficulty in printing, I suggest  going to Printer Properties and click on Landscape Mode (horizontal) rather than Portrait Mode (vertical). Perhaps someday it will all appear in a nice Portrait Mode; that is not a high priority  because this is an ongoing-research web site primarily designed for viewing. To reach any of the links provided, place the cursor on the underlined blue portion of that item until it becomes a hand, then use one left click of the mouse to go directly to that site. If you are able to bring up only a limited number of images on a page, it indicates that you may need additional memory for your computer. Editor.
