Abstract [en]

During the second half of the 18th century, west of the Forbidden Path – a trail going north from Philadelphia to Seneca territory in New York – Lenape, or Delaware, people faced the offer of conversion extended by Moravian missionaries, while pressured from all sides by European settler colonists. Moravian reports detail everyday activities and relations in Moravian mission towns and Delaware towns which the missionaries visit. Through these records I expand upon forms of dominance and authority within dispersed Lenape communities, and the complications and consequences of their encounter with European settler perceptions and expectations. Production of necessities, extensive diplomatic duties, and an increasingly volatile situation between different nations, Indigenous and European, in the period leading up to the American War of Independence forced all involved to reckon with different and cross-cutting orders of authority which makes it difficult to speak of any one form of dominance.
