Ocean City in Worcester County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Trail of the Whispering Giants
The Assateague Indian was a sub-tribe of the Nanticokes; both spoke a dialect of the Lenapes or Delaware Indian, which made them members of the Algonkian family. Indian groups living in the vicinity of Assateague Island included the Pocomoke, Annamessex, Manokin, Nassawattex, Acquintica, Assateague, Chincoteague and Kicotanks.
By the early 1700ís the Assateague, along with all other Indian tribes in the area, were pressured by colonists to move northward out of the region. Their migration led them through Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York and finally into Canada where they were lost to history.
