|caption=Portrait of Tish-Co-Han, a chief of the Delaware tribe. The chief's name means "He who never blackens himself." He was known for signing the "Walking Purchase of 1737," a treaty which ceded much
Native American land in the Pennsylvania area to white settlers.
<p>The Delaware natives, also called the Lenape, originally lived along the Delaware River in New Jersey. They speak a form of the Algonquian language and are thus related to the Miami natives, Ottawa natives, and Shawnee natives. The Delawares were called "Grandfathers" by the other Algonquian tribes because of their belief that the Delawares were among the oldest groups in the Algonquian nation.</p>
