Woodland Indian Hamlet

Woodland Indian Hamlet

 

The Woodland Indian Hamlet at Historic St. Mary’s City is a re-creation of a small Yaocomaco Indian hamlet typical of those found in southern Maryland in 1634 at the time of contact with English colonists. The hamlet represents a unique situation-native peoples and English colonists living together, peacefully, until the colonists could establish their own settlement. Visitors learn about Native American culture and skills and interaction between the Yaocomaco people and the colonists.
