Submitted photo Wigwams are described as a one-room rectangular house with an arched roof. The exterior was covered with grass mats or sections of bark overlapping each other like shingles and the inside walls were covered with mats made from grass or woven with corn husks.  Powwow Continued from page 111 whiskey or rum bore the arrival of the Europeans. The tribal chiefs 'ould not tol- erate the actions of theirnen while intoxicated and pressured the authorities to pass a law pro- hibiting anyone from bringing in- toxicants within three miles of an Indian fort or town on penalty of a fine of 5,000 pounds of tobacco. In 1713, 14 years later, the Nanti- cokes were still pleading with the authorities to punish the traders who persisted in bringing intoxi- cants to their towns. None of these laws were enforced. Today the Nanticoke tribe, the Tidewater People, are still living in lower Delaware, many along the Indian River in the Oak Or- chard/Riverdale area and are still fishing, hunting and cooking their catch. Some tribal members are big- time farmers, some operate small farms, and many others grow and preserve their own foods and herbs. To learn more about the Tide- water People, all are invited to at- tend the tribe's 26th annual two- day Nanticoke Indian Powwow celebrating the tribe's history, culture and traditions over the last 300 years. The dates are Sept. 6-7. There will be ample parking space and reasonable fees for parking and/or admission. The Nanticoke Indian Museum will be open during the two-day event. For more infoffnation, call the museum at 945-7022.

This ex- hibit runs through Aug. 31, at the League, locat- ed at 21 W Loockerman St., Dover. Mozert's work depicts landscape, still life, florals and scenes from every day life MOZERT created in wa- tercolor. Her love of watercolor began about 20 years ago while playing around with her daugh- ter's little watercolor pan and took her first watercolor class at an art supply store. While taking addi- tional classes she began to pro- duce commissioned paintings. Alice moved to Dover and subse- quently took additional classes from artist Donald Blow at the Dover Art League. Since that time she has sold her work at art shows and galleries and now in- structs watercolor workshops at DAL. "I truly feel passionate about art and enjoy the fulfillment it brings to be able to paint," Mozert said. In Mozert's execution of the subject she allows the viewer to stop and observe the artist's pro- fessional articulate hand. Seven- teen of Mozert's paintings will be on display. Mozert is also sched- uled to instruct Saturday Water- color.Workshops at DAL in late September and January, for which students may register for now. Mozert has lived in Dover for the past 14 years and is married to Bob Mozert. They have two grown children and two grand- sons. 4284A Highway One On The Service Road Rehoboth Beach, DE PH: 302-227-0700 FX: 302-226-8726 FAST Intemet Access at Reasonable Prices M-F 8am-Spin, Fri & Sat UII 10pm, Sun 10am-2pm Serving EAKFAST - LUNCH - TAKEOUT NOW SERVING Hershey Ice Cream CONES THICK SHAKES SUNDAES I liB) lili) lili) BOLD AMERICAN FOOD BRAVE NEW WORLD BALTIMORE AVENUE Reservations 302.227.3330 or 23 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, DE
