"We're the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania, and we've been here since time immemorial, but we've come back out now and we have a Culture Center here in Easton. It's to show our heritage and our culture and to teach other people that we're still here."
"What's been your experience growing up and being of the Lenape Nation and Native in general?"
"Okay, well, first of all, I'd like to say that the State of Pennsylvania, the government of Pennsylvania, doesn't recognize any American Indians living within their borders. So that's a problem right there; they believe that we want something that we don't, which is gaming, land issues, anything like that. We've approached them many times on our sovereign rights and our heritage and we've been in a battle with them, and I personally have been working to give recognition for over twenty years now."
