Indigenous Peoples of Garrett County: Home

A special collection of physical and digital resources documenting the indigenous peoples of Garrett and its surrounding counties


The Indigenous Peoples of Garrett County Collection includes resources and materials detailing the history and culture of the Indian Tribes native to Garrett County. Garrett County, and all of Maryland, historically home to a number of nomadic tribes, with experts unsure how many. However, a small group of Shawnee Indians have made Garrett County their permanent home. This collection contains images, books, and monographs on not the local Shawnee Indians, but many of the other tribes that traveled through the county or once called Maryland home.
