Rainbow Crow [Lenape Native Americans]


The story of Rainbow Crow is credited to Bill Thompson, a Lenape elder.

If you want to learn more about the Lenape, you might explore this website:

And this link has a Lenape language talking dictionary!

Do you know where the Lenape lived? I challenge you to research and find out, and to post your answers here!

*one of the places the Lenape lived was also where I lived as a child. My father and his brothers used to collect Lenape arrowheads in the fields.
