Good morning and Welcome,
Today we celebrate the Federal Recognition of six VA Tribes.
“The Thomasina E. Jordan Indian Tribes of Virginia Federal Recognition Act of 2017recognizes the Chickahominy, Eastern Chickahominy, Upper Mattaponi, Rappahannock, Monacan and Nansemond tribes as sovereign nations, bringing to 573 the number of federally-recognized tribes in the U.S. In 2016, the Pamunkey Indians became the first Virginia tribe to be granted federal recognition.”
So lets dance and celebrate this major milestone of the People.
Walk in Peace,
InterTribal 132 February 3rd, 2018
