Learning Delaware

Q: I am Delaware and would like to learn it before I die and so I can pass it on to my kids my tribe came from Okahoma and info will be greatly appreciated.

A: The best language lessons I know of in Delaware are the Western Delaware Language program, which comes with audio tapes of fluent Delaware speakers as well as a workbook.

There are also free materials we have linked to from our page http://www.native-languages.org/lenape.htm, but if you want to really learn the language, you won't be able to do that from a website-- you'll need to either take a class (which isn't possible in most states) or buy an audio course so you and your kids can hear the words.

Best of luck with this endeavor and if there's anything we can do to help, please let us know. Language loss is conquered one child at a time...

Have a good day!
