Diving into themes of ancestry, colonialism and race, Conversations imagines discussions that arise with the Indigenous Nanticoke’ Lenni-Lenape people of past, present and future. The water of the Delaware River brings age-old questions to the surface: beckoning listeners to question, be aware of, and learn about the land they move through.

The Kensington and Tacony Trail
This section of the Kensington & Tacony trail runs along the Delaware River in Northeast Philly. The Lenape, who are the original and continued residents of this land, traditionally fished from the riverbanks. The K&T is stewarded by Riverfront North Partnership which supports development of the public trail and park space, and environmental education.
