From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Siwanoy were a tribe of Native Americans who lived mostly in The Bronx and Westchester County, New York.[1] They were part of a group of tribes called the Wappinger-Mattabesec Confederacy.[2]

Today, the descendants of the Siwanoy people live all across the United States.
