Image Picker for Section 0
At their visit to the Cultural Resources Center (CRC) in Suitland, Md., the group saw fishing nets like those their relatives and ancestors made.

In addition to studying art conservation and anthropology at UD, Annabelle Fichtner is an intern with the Tribe’s  Village of Fork Branch Cultural Mapping Project.

Fichtner says her undergraduate thesis investigates “how fishing nets were traditionally made among Mid-Atlantic tribes in general, and …  how this knowledge can then be spread and revived within contemporary Native communities.”

The particular Native community she is partnering with is the Lenape community based in Cheswold, Del. Excerpts from the Delaware Public Media article. Click here to read the full article
