(“Red Score”), an epic written work on the history of the Delaware Indian tribe. According to legend, the work was recorded pictographically on bark in the 17th century; by the early 19th century only small fragments remained. The Historical Fragment (19th century), which is a continuation of the Walam Olum, attributes the epic’s authorship to a single individual, Le-hibit (“He Who Writes”). The Walam Olum reflects characteristics of the Delaware tribal system and contains cosmogonic and other myths and historical legends of the Delaware Indians.
