      We Thought Our Creator Had Abandoned Us: The Social Consequences of Smallpox in the Delaware Valley

      Join us for a presentation by Dr. Cara Lee Blume on the social impacts of smallpox on Native Americans. Dr. Blume is an archaeologist and historian with more than 50 years of experience working in Delaware. Over the last 40 years, she has developed strong ongoing relationships with the interrelated Lenape and Nanticoke tribal communities of Delaware and southern New Jersey. Since retiring from her position as Cultural Heritage Program Manager with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control in 2009, she has served as consulting ethno-historian to a confederation of Nanticoke and Lenape tribes, working on state and federal recognition issues. She is currently researching the post-contact history of these communities.
      This program is co-sponsored by the Lewes Public Library and the Archaeological Society of Delaware, Sussex County Chapter.
