As has already been brought up here and at the relaible sources noticeboard, this is not an acceptable reference for the stated undue claim. Ergative rlt (talk) 00:50, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Morons of Wikipedia, read the sources provided "Pre-Contact-1500 BC - The epic story of the west to east migration of the Lenni Lanape, ancient ancestors of the Anishinabe people, begins and is recorded as the Wallum Olum (an ancient written record on bark tablets and song sticks). It is the oldest written record of people in North America and dates back to before 1600 B.C." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.147.120.26 (talk) 20:13, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
Personal attacks aren't going to help you convince anyone, especially those of use familiar with Delaware oral history, that this hoax is anything other than a hoax. -Uyvsdi (talk) 20:37, 4 August 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Heckewelder[edit]

The Walam Olum may be a hoax, but John Heckewelder reported already in 1818 (!) in his book „Account of the History, Manners, and Customs of the Indian Nations who once inhabited Pennsylvania and the Neighboring States“ (Philadelphia, 1818) the narratives by the Lenni Lenape about the Talligewi/ALLIGEWI.
