The Delaware Public Archives, 121 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. N., Dover, is featuring a display with images and documents related to Native American life in the state, to commemorate November as Native American Heritage Month.
Members of the Lenape and Nanticoke tribes continue to promote their traditions and heritage. Among the photographs is an image of Gov. Jack Markell signing HB 345, which formally recognizes the Lenape Tribe of Delaware.
There are also photographs of the Nanticoke School and the annual Pow-Wow held in Millsboro. Reproductions of two Native American deeds dating to the 17th century are included in the exhibit. These materials are some of the Native American-related photographs and documents that are preserved at the Delaware Public Archives.
Also, the Delaware Public Archives will participate in the second annual Native American Heritage Pow-Wow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 19 at Dover High School, 1 Dover High Drive. DPA’s information kiosk will feature images and documents related to Native Americans in Delaware. Along with these materials, brochures and other information about the Delaware Public Archives will be available. The event is sponsored by the Dover High School Native American Club.
