Are you going to be in Millsboro this weekend?  If so, you should pay a visit to the Nanticoke Indian Pow Wow. It’s a southern Delaware fall tradition.

Did you know the Archives have various records relating to the Nanticoke Indians? We have books entitled “A Photographic Survey of the Indian River Community”, “Surviving Indian Groups of the eastern United States by William Harlen Gilbert, Jr” and “The Nanticoke Indians: Past and Present” by C.A. Weslager. We have enrolled bills which in 1903 passed “An act to better establish the identity of a race of people known as the offspring of the Nanticoke Indians.”  We also have wonderful photographs of the Pow Wow and the Nanticoke Indian School.

To see more photographs of the Nanticoke Indian Pow Wow, you can visit the album on our Facebook page.
