Eight Coats, Seven Shirts, and Fifteen Fathom Wampum: A Living History Experience

April 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Stop by the William Paca House to meet living historian Drew Shuptar Rayvis to learn about the indigenous peoples who inhabited this area by the Chesapeake Bay.

The year is 1695 and Annapolis is the new capital of colonial Maryland. Explore the interconnected relationship between European settlers and the Algonkian peoples and learn about the adaptation of Native American life to colonial settlement.

This drop-in program will highlight the earliest American culture interactions and clashes through customs of war, adoption, captivity, alliance, friendships and marriages between Natives, Europeans and Africans. View traditional objects such as furs, gourd bows and necklaces.

This program is recommended for ages 8 and up. Registration available, but not required.

Cost: Free ($5 suggested donation)

This free, drop-in program is supported in part by the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County.
