Help the Maryland State Library Develop A Guide to Indigenous Maryland

The Maryland State Library Guide to Indigenous Maryland Task Force, coordinated by the Maryland State Library and supported by the Arundel County Public Library, is developing a new educational app and website to teach the general public about Maryland’s important local Native American and Indigenous heritage.

They are currently collecting information about sites, historical events and community figures (contemporary and historical) that our community would like to see featured in this resource. They are asking for your input with this project!

The Guide to Indigenous Maryland will be an engaging educational tool to provide the general public with an introduction to key Native and Indigenous sites and communities throughout the state of Maryland. The goal of the project is to deepen Marylanders’ understanding of local Native and Indigenous heritage with engaging content that is informed by local Native and Indigenous individuals and other cultural heritage experts, with contributions from the general public that are reviewed by project curator Dr. Elizabeth Rule (American University).

Community submissions should be entered by Friday, January 31, 2022 (deadline extended), but will be accepted on a rolling basis through winter 2022. Please submit one site/tradition/historical event per form. You may complete multiple submissions of the form.

Share your insights and suggestions by completing the Guide to Indigenous Maryland Community Submission Form.

Thank you for your contributions to this important project!
