Munsee Culture and History

As a complement to our Munsee language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links about the Munsee people and various aspects of their society. This website emphasizes American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Munsee history is interesting and important, but the Munsees are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
