Re: QUERY: Recommendations for literature on indigenous American history in the Chesapeake region

Dear Allison and Psyche,

Thank you both very much for your recommendations! They are most helpful and I truly appreciate you taking the time to help me with this research.

Thanks and kind regards,

Re: QUERY: Recommendations for literature on indigenous American history in the Chesapeake region

Dear Helen,

In addition to the sources mentioned above (Malinda Maynor Lowery's work is phenomenal!), here are some classic studies of Indigenous sacred traditions in the Chesapeake region during the colonial era:

Patricia Galloway, ed., Southeastern Ceremonial Complex: Artifacts and Analysis (1989)

Charles Hudson and Carmen Chaves Tesser, eds., Forgotten Centuries: Indians and Europeans in the American South, 1521-1704 (1994)

Gregory Waselkov, Peter Wood, and Tom Hatley, eds., Powhatan's Mantle: Indians in the Colonial Southeast (1989/2006, 2nd ed.)

Re: QUERY: Recommendations for literature on indigenous American history in the Chesapeake region

Hi Helen,
I would look into work by Malinda Maynor Lowery and also the very recent dissertation of Ashley Minner - UMD, who works on the Lumbee who migrated from NC to Baltimore.
