The Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation citizens are neighbors of Salem Quarter Friends. The Tribe “is acknowledged by the State of New Jersey through both concurrent legislative resolution and statutes,” yet is engaged in a lawsuit seeking reaffirmation, from the state of New Jersey – NLL v. NJ. Comprehensive ongoing media articles are posted by their legal council, Cultural Heritage Partners; and an update has also been posted by Lisa J. Ellwood, August 31, 2017 for Indian Country Media Network, providing clarity to the realities imposed upon this Native Nation and their citizens today. Please read this latest insightful release.

Guided by the still small voice within, Friends have accompanied the contemporary condition of authentic, sovereign Native Tribal Nations who have remained on their homeland, Lenapehoking.
