The tribal war over property gifted to banned Indian chief


Tribal warfare has broken out over a millionaire’s offer to give a piece of Manhattan — his West Village home — back to the Indians.

Jean-Louis Goldwater Bourgeois is ready to bestow the $4 million house on the Hudson River to Anthony Jay Van Dunk, a chief in the Lenape nation, the tribe that originally inhabited Manhattan.

But after The Post revealed Bourgeois’ philanthropy last Sunday, another Lenape chief has come forward to say Van Dunk was kicked out of the tribe and that he would like the property.
