Resource guide celebrating the history and culture of Native American and Ingidenous Peoples.

Pratt Institute's campus in Brooklyn sits on the ancestral homeland of the Lenape, Lenapehoking. In November 2021, Pratt Institute announced its Living Land Acknowledgment, available to read on the Institute's History page.

The Lenape peoples who survived the devastation of European colonialism were forced to migrate west, where they renamed themselves the Delaware Nation, after the European name given to the river along which many of their ancestors originally resided. Currently, there are federally recognized Lenape nations in Oklahoma and Wisconsin, as well as First Nations in Ontario, Canada.
