1. Patawomeck People at Belle Plains Marker
Inscription. The Creek provided fish for centuries for the Patawomeck people who in turn taught the colonists to fish to survive, to plant vegetables hitherto unknown to the English and to hunt in the forests. A surviving remnant of the Patawomeck became commercial fishermen in the 19th Century and their descendants today continue to work as watermen. Thus, many Patawomeck words have been incorporated permanently into the English language.
