“preserving the history, language traditions, & culture of the Accohannock Indian Tribe”
Our mission: The Accohannock Indian Tribe shall preserve and promote its history, language traditions, and culture; foster sound education, health, social, and economic well being of individuals and the tribal community, and with trust and integrity, aspire to achieve self-sufficiency and self determination. The Accohannock Indian Tribe, Inc. is building a Living Village on Maryland's Eastern Shore as a future economic development and self-sufficiency project. The Native American Living Village is much like an early Algonquin-speaking Eastern Woodlands Indian village surrounded by a palisade fence. The first watermen of the Chesapeake lived in such villages along the rivers and bays. The villages had longhouses, wickiups and gardens surrounded by palisade fences. The village will demonstrate the daily life of the Accohannock by having American Indians engage in activities like basket weaving, cooking, dancing, gardening, and hunting and fishing. They will interact with visitors, welcoming them into the village and teaching them Indian words and skills. They will prepare native foods like corn, squash, wild rice, wild game, fish, oysters, and crabs.
Sadly this village and gift shop never opened, Millions of dollars wasted and nothing to show….
