Mun'see Indians, an American tribe of the Delaware family, originally one of the three great divisions of that race. They were sometimes called the Wolf tribe of the Delawares. They resided along the Delaware River, and in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. During the Revolution many of the Munsees removed to Canada, where at Thames, Ontario, in 1903, there were about 100 survivors. At Green Bay, Wis., is another tribal remnant of several hundred.
