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!
