People's Light currently resides on Lenapehoking, land of Lenape. The Lenape are among the Indigenous Nations of First Contact with Europeans, and one of the oldest continuous democracies on Earth.
According to Lenape, this land belongs to the Creator, yet it was given to Lenape to possess and steward. It was and continues to be their homeland to look after, as many nations of Lenapehoking are still here. And while Lenape have always welcomed people from all over the world to their shores, that invitation comes with the responsibility to treat everyone and everything on this land with respect.
W’anishi. Thank you.
