Native Americans: First Contact On Lower Delmarva
Opening June of 2017
In early June 1608, Captain John Smith made two exploratory expeditions up the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, describing the flora and fauna as well as Native Americans whom he saw there.
This painting, by an unknown artist, depicts Powhatan's daughter, Pocahontas (Matoaka) wearing a typical beaver hat. Pocahontas, baptized a Christian, married Virginia planter John Rolfe, and died in England where she had gone to be presented to King James I.
