Many people wonder where the name Minisink came from. Around 1000 B.C. native Americans of the Lenape (pronounced as if spelled "lun-NAH-pay" -Delaware Nation) nation roamed this area. The Lenape Nation had three tribes. One of the tribes was the 'Minsis'. 'Minsis' means wolf or fierce protector. There were six sub tribes and one of them was the Minisink Tribe.
