History

New Jersey was originally settled by Native Americans, with Lenni-Lenape dominating at the time of contact. Scheyichbi was the Lenape name for what is now New Jersey. The Lenape were a number of autonomous groups that practiced maize farming to supplement their hunting and gathering in the area around the Delaware River, downstream of the Hudson River and west of Long Island Sound. Lenape society was divided into matriarchal clans based on a common female ancestry. These clans were organized into three distinct phratries identified by their animal markings: Turtles, Turks and Wolves. They first encountered the Dutch in the early 17th century, and their main relationship with the Europeans was through the fur trade.
