The traditional Delaware, or Lenape, homeland was located in the woodlands along the East Coast in what is now Delaware and New York. Like most Eastern peoples, they were relocated to the Great Plains during the middle of the 19th century. Delaware women were known for their ribbon work and fine beading. Once settled in Oklahoma, the women continued to use their traditional patterns for making moccasins. However, they were increasingly influenced by the Prairie-style beadwork, as evidenced by the increase of an undulating design outlined in white beads.
