Native peoples have lived in Maryland for thousands of years. They hunted, grew crops, gathered food, built longhouses, and had effective governance prior to the Europeans coming to America. Known as Eastern Woodland peoples, their tribes included the Nanticoke, Piscatway, Susquehannock, Accohannock, and others. Your child can learn about these peoples at Cromwell Valley Park.
