Nanticoke Dance & Culture Presentation
The Lewes Historical Society is proud to present
a special evening of Nanticoke Dance and
Culture on January 18th at 7:30pm
Fri., Jan. 18th • 7:30 pm
Learn of the Nanticoke dance and music and hear a brief history of Delaware’s Nanticoke People’s
traditions that have survived through generations. The evening’s events will include explanation of
the significance of the native regalia and the meaning of dances to be performed.
“Many people look at our regalia and think ‘costume.’ Our tribal wear reflects tradition and also may have origins
in things handed down from generations before us. Native Americans don’t wear costumes. Our regalia has deep
and traditional meaning for each of us” said Nanticoke Councilman Herman Jackson
Join The Nanticoke Indian Association for a discussion and demonstration on “Nanticoke Dance,” on Friday, January
18th, at 7:30pm at the Community Room at the Margaret H. Rollins Community Room at 101 Adams Avenue,
Lewes. Admission is free and no reservations are required.
The Nanticoke dancers will perform to the rhythm of a tribal drum played
by tribal singers and drummers. The Lewes Historical Society is proud of
its continuing tradition of hosting the Nanticokes and sharing their history
of American Indian culture at the Society’s programs. Their previous presentations
and traditional performances have been met with enthusiasm
by both tribal members and their audiences.
