Lenni Lenape Village

After being taken by the Lenni Lenape (Delaware) Indians at the age of four, True Son lives among them in their village until he is fifteen and forced to return to his white family. The village remains in his mind throughout his time in Pennsylvania, and he is haunted by visions of its familiar sights, sounds and smells.

Forks of Muskingum
