by Scott Hayes Wenning. Softbound, 144 pages. Did you ever wonder how to pronounce those historic Delaware Indian words recorded by the 18th century Moravian Missionaries? Much has been written about the Delaware or Lenape' Indians history, but little has been done to give readers of history a basic understanding about keys to pronouncing the oldest of Algonquin languages. So significant is the lasting memory of the early Delaware language on Pennsylvania that many of our mountains, valleys, streams, and towns still carry their Indian given names. It was this love for the land of their fathers that caused the Delaware to fight to the death for their home and hunting grounds. This is their story. Complete with a brief history, pronunciation guide, and grammatical key to using basic Delaware language, this book includes a 3,000 word vocabulary list, and a step by step guide to the rules of making this Delaware language guide fun and easy to use.
