Petition to Protect New York City’s Historic Native American Patrimony

This petition had 562 supporters

United Confederation of Taíno People started this petition to NYC Council and

We; the undersigned, do hereby support the Ramapough Lenape Nation's request to rename the First Avenue extension from East 125th Street to the 127th Street Viaduct entrance to the Waterfront “Lenape Pathway”, and we further call for the development of an Indigenous Cultural Center Waterfront Park dedicated to the Lenape along the East Harlem River from East 125th to 131th Street in CB11, Manhattan. Currently, there is no substantial monument to the Lenape in NYC. These acts offer a unique historic and educational opportunity to celebrate NY’s racial and cultural diversity while paying homage to the first Americans.
