About The Event
At special events like the Chicone Village Day in the spring there are native historic interpreters and representatives from Delmarva Native tribes who come to Handsell to celebrate their history. Our events are not Pow-Wows, but educational events held to teach of the ways of the ancient Eastern Woodland people who inhabited the Chesapeake Bay region and Mid-Atlantic coast. Experimental archaeological techniques are explored and ancient skills demonstrated at these events. This event is sponsored by the Nanticoke Historic Preservation Alliance (NHPA).
