Tamanend

Public Art in Old City & Society Hill

Rare are the public artworks dedicated to Native Americans in US cities. This majestic 20ft sculpture by Raymond Sandoval commemorates the chief of the Lenni-Lenape tribe, who welcomed William Penn upon his arrival to Pennsylvania in 1682. Tamanend was considered the patron saint of America prior to Independence and on May 1, Tamanend Day, bells were rung in his honor.
