Native American Heritage

Over 13,000 Years of History

The American continent is vast and has a variety of cultures that date back thousands of years. Indigenous peoples' histories, cultures, and heritage are evident in all areas of Anne Arundel County. Each November during Native American Heritage Month and throughout the year, the National Park Service, the State of Maryland, and Anne Arundel County take time to honor the history and culture of America's indigenous peoples. 

Below are a few resources to introduce you to the important indigenous history of Anne Arundel County and to a few helpful tribal resources. For November activities for Native American Heritage Month, visit the Anne Arundel County Public Library's and the Lost Towns Project's web pages.
