Local author Ed Moran will sell an updated edition of his book, “The Dreamcatcher of Rehoboth Beach,” at the 44th annual Nanticoke Indian Tribe Pow Wow, scheduled for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 10 and 11 a.m. September, at Hudson Fields, 30045 Eagle Crest Road, Milton. All proceeds from sales will go to the Nanticoke Tribe.
While signing copies of his book at last year’s powwow, Moran met with representatives of an organization called MMIW, which is dedicated to raising awareness for missing and murdered Indigenous women. At their request, he added a chapter to his book to draw attention to the organization’s mission. Moran took a photo of their signage and used it to accompany the new chapter, Not My Choice.
“This is my favorite chapter, and I hope MMIW feels the same way once I present it to them at the powwow this year,” he said.
The historical and illustrated fantasy follows a proud young Nanticoke woman named Skye as she channels the power of the mystical Dreamcatcher through animal-shaped candy in the resort town of Rehoboth Beach.
“Native American history and mythology plays a huge role in shaping my story. I also rely heavily on local landmarks and history such as Punkin’ Chunkin’, Sea Witch Festival, and historic Rosedale Beach Resort,” Moran said.
