   The Original People and The Bark Kettle: Native American Tribes of Greenburgh
    
    
   The Original People and The Bark Kettle: Native American Tribes of Greenburgh
   By:
    Riley Wentzler & Felicia Barber 
    
    
        
      
                        
    
    
   In the past , ...... we wrote an article analyzing the town seal which contains all of the following pictures: A black kettle , three crossed sticks which resemble a tepee , rope tying the kettle to the sticks , and a roaring fire directly below the kettle . This article was entitled ,
   A Thousand Words Which You Never Knew: The Forgotten Story of the Greenburgh Town Seal .
    
   As mentioned in that article , one Native American tribe in Greenburgh was the Weekquaeskeek . They were part of the Great Mohegan Nation and therefore spoke the Algonquin Language 
    (
   https://www . nytimes . com/1991/04/28/realestate/if - you - re - thinking - of - living - in - hartsdale . html
    ) .  
   They were great hunters and fishermen who also knew how to grow beans and corn . Therefore , they ate a balanced diet consisting of: bread , venison , oysters , sieva beans , and corn ( Greenburgh Bicentennial Commission , 1998 , p . 1 ) . They used tree bark to make special water - tight kettles ( Greenburgh Bicentennial Commission , 1998 , p . 1 ) . In their native Algonquin language , the name “Weekquaeskeek” means place of the bark kettle” 
    (
   https://www . nytimes . com/1991/04/28/realestate/if - you - re - thinking - of - living - in - hartsdale . html
    ) .
    
    
    
   Although they are not reflected in the Town Seal , another tribe present in Greenburgh was the Lenape , also called Lenni - Lenape (
   https://hastingshistoricalsociety . org/village - history/
    ) . Like the Weekquaeskeek , the Lenape also spoke the Algonquin Language , and also like the Weekquaeskeek they ate: corn , beans , and venison , however in addition to these things , they also ate sunflower seeds and squash . Their name means “original people” in Algonquin ( MICROSOFT ENCARTA , 1993 - 2003 Microsoft Corporation ) . These tribes were not the only tribes present in New York State the: Mohawk , Seneca , and Oneida , also lived in New York , but
   not
    in Greenburgh . It is also important to note that these other tribes were not members of the Algonquin Nation , but instead part of the Iroquois Confederacy , enemies of the
    
   Algonquin Nation .
    
   But how did all these tribes interact with one another? Was there conflict between the Lenape and the Weekquaeskeek? The authors aren’t sure , but think this is unlikely . It is unlikely because the Algonquin Nation was a significant threat to the Iroquois Confederacy . In addition to the Mohawk , Seneca , and Oneida , the Iroquois Confederacy also included the Cayouga , and the Onondaga . While we aren’t sure if these last two tribes lived in New York or not , we doubt the Algonquin Nation as a whole could have kept up such a resistance to the Iroquois Confederacy if their member tribes such as the Weekquaeskeek Tribe and the Lenape Tribe were fighting amongst themselves . Was there conflict between the Weekquaeskeek and one of the Iroquois Confederacy member tribes? Again , the authors are unsure . Was there conflict between the Lenape and one of the Iroquois Confederacy member tribes? Definitely!!!! The Seneca fought with the Lenape a lot , but was Greenburgh the place where this fighting occurred? We don’t know .
