WEEK 15, SCATTERING

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1355

After him, Snow Bird was chief.
He spoke of the south.

Wtenk nekama sakimanep chilili shawaniluen.
(Original recorded sounds.)
 ____________________________________Which of the original sounds might describe “Snowbird.”

Where do Snow Birds spend the winter?

What type of “hair do”
does this Snow Bird have?

What is the pictograph trying to tell us?

AD 1356
 
That our fathers should possess it
by scattering abroad.
Wokenapi nitaton wullaton apakchikton.
(Original recorded sounds.)
_____________________________________

What HAIR DOs do the heads wear?

What might those HAIR Dos mean?

Why would thousands of LENAPE
 have to divide?

Why couldn’t they push through the people south of them?

AD 1537
 
Snow Bird went south,
White Beaver went east.

Shawaniwaen chilili, wapaniwaen tamakwi.
(Original recorded sounds.)
 ____________________________________
Where, exactly, did Snow Bird’s group go?

What might White Beaver mean?

Where, exactly, did White Beaver’s group go?

How do we know; exactly,
where the groups went?
