There were originally four clans among the Lenape - four being a sacred number among most native tribes throughout the Americas. These were the Turkey, Wolf, Turtle and Crow (or Raven) Clans. This last clan apparently died out before 1800 and its functions included preparing the dead for burial.

The three clans were the wolf, the turkey, and the turtle. The clan that someone belonged to would be the clan of their mother.
