The English and the Kuskawaroak

History teacher Michael Morgan has a great article on first contact between English colonists and the Algonquian people living in what is now the State of Delaware at  The encounter was not peaceful because the Kuskawaroak, or White Bead Makers*, were naturally very distrustful of the odd-looking invaders.

These peoples, part of what has been called the Algonquian Migration, are of great interest to me and I hope you, too, enjoy the article!


* These days, the Kuskawaroak are better known as the Tidewater People, or “Nanticoke.”
