A confederacy, of Algonquian stock, occupying the
basin of the Delaware River. They were known to the British as
Delawares; to the French as Loups; and they called themselves, Lenape.
Early in the eighteenth century, the Iroquois brought them into
subjection. They crossed the mountains, and formed settlements in
eastern Ohio, about the middle of the century. The remnant of the
Delawares are now on reservations in Oklahoma, with a few hundred in
Canada. =Index=: (Sir Frederick Haldimand era) Bring prisoners from Wyoming, 149. =Bib.=: Hodge,
