"We Are Still Here:" The History and Continuing Culture
of New Jersey's Indigenous Tribal Communities
Saturday, April 17, 2021 - 1 pm
Join the virtual talk by the Rev. Dr. J.R. Norwood, Jr., and learn about the original people who lived in what is now New Jersey and their contributions to our state’s rich diversity.
The land on which the Trent House was built is part of the traditional territory of the Lenni- Lenape, called “Lenapehoking.” The Lenni-Lenape People lived in harmony with one another upon this territory for thousands of years before European colonization. During the colonial era and early federal period, many were removed west and north, but some remained among the three continuing historical tribal communities of the region: The Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation; the Ramapough Lenape Nation; and the Powhatan Renape Nation. The Trent House acknowledges the Lenni-Lenape as the original people of this land and their historic and continuing relationship with their territory.
The Rev. Dr. J.R. Norwood, Jr., is an ordained Christian clergyman and founding pastor of the Ujima Village Christian Church of Ewing, New Jersey. A member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation, he served as an elected Tribal Councilman from 2004 to 2019, is currently the first Principal Justice of the Tribal Supreme Court of the Nation, and represents the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape in the National Congress of American Indians, where he serves as co-chairman of the Task Force on Federal Acknowledgment.
