Virginia Indian Heritage Day at Jamestown Settlement, Williamsburg, Virginia



Virginia Indian Heritage Day at Jamestown Settlement is a celebration of the tribes native to Virginia. These tribes link themselves to the Powhatans who met the English settlers at Jamestown in 1607. Among the groups represented at the event were the Mattoponi, Chickahominy and Pamunkey who shared their customs, history, and culture through dance. 

The day also included a panel discussion presented by tribal leaders and academicians regarding the "Werowocomoco: Seat of Power" exhibit currently on display at the Jamestown Settlement gallery. Werowocomoco was the seat of power for Powhatan and the location where Pocahontas is said to have saved Captain John Smith's life.

Oh I would have loved that. Wonderful shots, as always. I also loved the previous post, I wouldn't mind having some of that pottery at home!
I rarely comment on your blog because more often than not I get errors when opening the pages :-(

I love these photos of the Aboriginal peoples. I also see that the Aboriginal attire is nicely done and sticks to mostly traditional materials. Well done.
