Celebrating Native American Heritage Month

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Members of the Piscataway tribe join hands during the launch of the Southern Maryland Heritage Area on May 25, 2023.

Piscataway Park lies on the traditional capital of the Piscataway people. This abundant place is called Moyaon, meaning "everything is here." It is the sacred center of the Piscataway homeland, which includes much of what is today called Maryland and Northern Virginia.

This Native American Heritage Month (and every month!), we encourage you to learn more about the Indigenous people and cultures where you live. Listen to Indigenous voices as they tell their stories, honor Indigenous ways of knowing, and treat the sacred lands you inhabit and visit with respect.

To get you started, check out the resources below.
