Delaware Tribe & ESU sign agreement

OFFICIAL
AGREEMENT
SIGNING

Friday, September 21 - 1:00pm

Lower Dansbury Commons

Delaware Tribe Historic
Preservation Office

and East Stroudsburg University

THE IMPORTANCE OF TODAY’S EVENT

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that is being signed today will enable the Delaware Tribe to move their Tribal Historic Preservation Office (DTHPO), Eastern Office from its current location (as of the date of this MOU) to Stroud Hall of East Stroudsburg University. East Stroudsburg University desires to house the DTHPO on its campus in order to foster collaborative and educational initiatives between the two organizations.

The Delaware Tribe Historic Preservation Office is responsible for monitoring the potential impacts to historic Delaware cultural, historic and sacred sites as well as working with museums and federal agencies on the repatriation of Delaware cultural objects. With this new office in the heart of the Delaware homeland, the tribe will be better able to protect these significant locations as well as return important museum collections held by institutions in the region.

The DTHPO regularly consults with universities, museums, public agencies and private businesses throughout the Midwest and Northeast on the preservation of Delaware affiliated historic and cultural sites. Having an East Stroudsburg University address will distinguish our institution as one of the few universities, in the country, to house a Tribal Historic Preservation Office.

While there are many benefits of this partnership, the overarching goal will be to enable the University’s students, faculty and staff to work with archeologists, historians and others to learn from the long and proud legacy of Indian tribes that occupied the Pocono Region throughout history in order to better understand the ways of life of those who came before, and how they continue to play a role in our society today.
