This display consists of 6 wooden panels. "Elan Kumankw" or "We Are All Related," an original mural depiction of area Native American history and symbolism. The Walum Olum, a pictographic chronicle of the Delaware Indians is featured on the panels along with original artwork from over seventy-five artists -- from a twelve year old girl's panel (with many children contributing to it), to the creation story of the Eastern Deleware Nation, and other topics.
