Lenape-Delaware mythology

The mythology Lenape-Delaware includes the following Native American peoples: Lenapes, Wolves, Delawares, Munsee, Unami, Unalachtigo

The Lenapes, also called Wolves by the French in the days of New France and Delawares by the British, are a Native American people organized in clans, originally from the shore of the Delaware River, the Hudson and the Long Island Sound. The people had three branches: the Munsee, the Unami and the Unalachtigo.

The Lenapes call themselves Lëni-Lënape that we can translate by "authentic men". They were called Delawares by the British, because they lived along the Delaware River named after the first governor of the colony of Virginia, Thomas West, known as "Baron de la Warr".
