Since the formation of the Confederation of Sovereign Nanticoke-Lenape Tribes, which began as an intertribal union between our tribe and the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware, there remained one additional tribe which was needed to make the confederation complete, the Nanticoke Indian Tribe of Delaware.  Our three tribes share common bloodlines and history.  In May 2011, the Nanticoke unanimously voted at their regular tribal meeting to become full members of the confederation.   This completes our union.  We wholeheartedly welcome our relatives into our Confederation!

    My great grand mothers name was Mary Joina and we are unable to find her death records. Is the last name Joina or Joiner an Nanticoke name?

    I have sketchy information from my Great-Great Grandmothers time that we belonged to the Original Nanticoke tribes living Maryland Eastern Shore before they were forced to Delaware. Please help me to continue research by providing any sources for my study.

  3. My mother’s family is from Sussex Co., DE. I know that there were Nanticoke women in our family from the 1600’s. Just having a hard time finding out who they were; since there are so many missing records. The men they married were all farmers or land owners. I am trying to find out all I can about the Nanticoke and this site has been helpful. I have all the family names, but none of the names of these women. Thank you.
