Chicone Village Day
The Nanticoke Historic Preservation Alliance is sponsoring the sixth Annual Chicone Village Day at the Handsell Historic Site on Saturday, April 28 from 10am-5pm on Indiantown Road in Vienna, MD.
Handsell is located at 4837 Indiantown Road near Vienna, Maryland.
The day is designed to honor the historic culture of the Eastern Woodland Native People who resided on this location. Plans for the 2018 event are still in the works, but last year you could tour a replica Native American longhouse, watch demonstrations by cultural historic and native interpreter Daniel Firehawk Abbott, see the new Native garden and work shelter, watch presentations by the Pocomoke Indian Nation, and sample authentic Native foods (admission fee to food tent), and tour the historic Handsell house and kitchen.
The Chicone Village Project, begun in 2013 with the ground breaking of an authentic native dwelling lodge or longhouse has expanded now to include not only the first functional, authentically built native dwelling in Maryland, but also a native garden and Native Work Shelter.
Admission is $2 for adults; children 12 and under free.
