Nause-Waiwash Band of Indians Longhouse

Nause-Waiwash (nah-soo WAY-wash), is a reference to two Nanticoke ancestral villages. The Nause-Waiwash Band of Indians is a group of more than 250 descendants of the original Nanticoke whose home was/is the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The Nause-Waiwash are continuing to re-establish community by rehabilitating a Long House in Dorchester County, Maryland, south of Cambridge. The Long House, circa 1897,  is located on Greenbrier and Maple Dam roads and is on the National Registry of Historic Landmarks.
