The Lenape-Delaware Origin in Modern History
( From Algonquians of the East Coast, recommended reading for all, with beautiful illustrations)
Map showing the migration route of the Delaware and Munsee Indians. Many Munsee settled in Ontario, Canada and in Wisconsin and Kansas. Large numbers of Lenape finally settled in Oklahoma, following stops in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, and Kansas. The dates are indicated on the map. The "Absentee Delaware," now the Delaware Tribe of Western Oklahoma, veered southwestward' from settlements in Arkansas and Texas, they finally relocated near Anadarko, Oklahoma. One group, the Kansas or Citizen Delaware elected to remain in Kansas.

From the morn to night, my friend.
