Maryland Indian Tribe


Also called: Piscataway, from a village on Piscataway Creek where the Conoy chief resided.

Probably a synonym of Kanawha, but the meaning is unknown; also spelled Canawese, and Ganawese.

Connections. The Conoy belonged to the Algonquian linguistic stock and were probably intermediate between the Nanticoke and Powhatan Indians.
