James Blake
Gettysburg, PA

My name is James Blake. As a youth I became interested in eighteenth century history, especially from the Native perspective. As I have continued to expand my knowledge of this period into my adult life,I have amassed an extensive library of hard to find research material pertaining to the lives of the eastern woodland Indians. Though the learning of many of their almost lost skills has enabled me to authentically recreate much of their personal adornment and equipment, I feel that I am first and foremost a researcher. Examples of my work can be seen in numerous documentary movies and museum exhibits.
