This 56-page booklet offers cultural stories of the Lenape people as told by Chief Robert Redhawk Ruth, including the Lenape Creation Story, the Meesink Story, the Story of the Maple Tree, and many others. Each story is offered in English and also translated into the Unami dialect of the Lenape language.
