Piscataway Cultural Landscape
To honor Piscataway Park’s identity as part of the traditional homeland of Maryland’s Piscataway people the Accokeek Foundation embarked on the Piscataway Cultural Landscape Initiative. Its goal? Provide visitors with opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of this landscape’s significance to Piscataway people, past and present, while also providing members of the Piscataway community with opportunities to share their history and culture with each other and with the general public. The Foundation’s exhibit “Piscataway Connections to the Land,” created from oral history interviews with Piscataway elders, carries the Piscataway story beyond the park.
