Delmarva History Lecture Series returns

The Westside Historical Society will recognize National Native American Month with a talk on the local Pocomoke Indians, presented by Norris Howard.

Hereditary chief of the Pocomoke Paramountcy and a well-known presenter on local Native American history, Howard will speak at the MAC Center in Salisbury on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 2 p.m.

Howard was born in Somerset County and has spent most of his life on the Lower Shore, researching the history of the Pocomoke and other tribal units on the Eastern Shore. Although few individuals have been able to trace their Native American ancestry, Howard has been diligent in spending his non-work time in reconstructing his family’s roots, including the Lawson, Cannon and Haley families, here on the Eastern Shore.

The leader of the Pocomoke Indian Nation, an Eastern Woodland culture of the Algonquian language group, Howard will outline the history of the Pocomoke Nation on the Shore since first contact, and will locate and describe the various sub groups of the Pocomoke Tribe as well as discussing the various treaties made between the Pocomoke and the colonial governments.

The lecture is free to the public and reservations are not required.

For more information contact Westside Historical Society at or phone 410-726-8047.
