This exhibit features a small collection of items related to the Lunaapeewak (Lenape or Delaware people) on whose ancestral lands sits the campus of Princeton University. Items include language-related materials from the Princeton University Library's Special Collections. Many of these items were digitized for Gabriel Swift's exhibit on Print Culture in Indigenous North America and in coordination with the 2022 Munsee Language & History Symposium. We will continue to add related materials to this collection; if you would like something digitized, please contact Anu Vedantham at anuv@princeton.edu.
