Editorial

At first, life for Dutch colonists changed little under English rule. The Dutch settlers were given the same rights as English settlers. The Dutch kept their language, their religion,and other parts of their culture. Over time, some Dutch colonists began adopting English ways. Dutch merchants learned to speak English so they could continue trading. People from Dutch families married into English families. The English focused on settlement of New Jersey. Settlers were encouraged to move there. Soon settlers moved west of the Hudson River and began clearing land for farms and villages. The colonists took over the Lenapes lands. They also brought deadly diseases to the Lenape people. To protect themselves and their culture, large groups of Lenape moved west. They eventually settled in what now Canada, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma. Today, some people with Lenape heritage still live in New Jersey. Lenape culture can be seen in the name of many places and physical features throughout the state.
