Maryland Indian Tribes

Conoy. Probably a synonym of Kanawha, but the meaning is unknown; also spelled Canawese, and Ganawese. Also called:
Piscataway, from a village on Piscataway Creek where the Conoy chief resided.

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