Munsee Language and History Symposium
LUNAAPAHKIING, HULUNIIXSUWAAKAN, LUNAAPEEWAK
(Munsee Land, Munsee Language, Munsee People)
This second annual event takes place during the Punihle Waniipakw Niipaahum (Falling Leaf Moon) on Lunaapahkiing, at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS). The gathering puts Princeton and IAS students, staff, members, faculty, and other attendees in direct dialogue with members of the Munsee-Delaware Nation to learn about Munsee language, history, and culture. Speakers include Munsee language keepers, historians, artists, and community members.
Indigenous language revitalization counteracts the violent history of settler colonial regimes, including boarding schools where Native children were forced to speak English exclusively. This is the second in what we hope will be a series of annual gatherings in support of Lunaape language revitalization efforts.
