Our MissionPhoto GalleryContact UsEventsPast EventsOur HistoryCalendar

When the Europeans came into contact with the Pocomoke Nation, its people included today’s Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester Counties, in Maryland, southern Sussex County, Delaware and northern Accomac County, Virginia.  The Pocomoke Paramountcy included those villages  along the Annemessex, Manoakin and Pocomoke Rivers and the bays of Pocomoke and Chincoteague. Today the Pocomoke Indian Nation publicly interprets the history, culture and life ways of the Pocomoke Paramountcy through oral presentations, live demonstrations and educational classes on native skills, arts and customs.  To the right, Pocomoke ladies are greeting boaters and tourists on the Pocomoke River at Shelltown.
