i'm very proud of the poeple who made this site possible- it gives me pride and joy to know that we are making ourselves known. it is about time that people learn who we are and what we have overcome throughout history. what would this country be without our people? i am proud to be native american, and may all who are also be proud of their roots. remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. keep the old ways, because they are good. don't give in to the outside world. keep the fires of our backround burning in a world that tries to block it out. remember who you are and never let it go.

My name is Mike Flinn and I am researching my family history as it relates to the Powhatan People. I know very little at this point but would be very appreciative af any help that you can provide. What I do know is that my great-grandmother's name was Pocahontas Pullam or Puliam and her mother's name was Ware. She was born in Moniteau county, Missouri in 1847; married a man named John Whitehead in 1871, and married my great-grandfather, Samuel Winebrenner, in 1876. All of this took place in Monteau county, Missouri. I am now trying to learn more about Ware and her ties to the Powhatan people. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I have information on the Winebrenner family if any one is interested. Best regards, Mike Flinn

Ive been in foster homes and so I was unable to learn about my family history. I do remember pictures of grandparents and such. Im told that my mother was Cherokee and her father was a son of a chief,possibly a chief of the nation of The People but for unfortunate reasons I dont know.I have children of my own now and they are curiuse.I dont have any clue as to how to find out because I never was able to be close to my biological family. I have sisters and brothers Ive never even seen before. James

I was delighted to see this website. The Powhatan Nation was instrumental in saving my great grandfather's life (Robert Pollard Holmes)and once he joined the settlement, he married my great grandmother who was of either the Cherokee or Pamunkey/Mattaponi tribes. If anyone knows the Holmes name, please contact me via e-mail. Peace, Herringchoke

I have not paid attention to the plight of the First People until 2 years ago when I attended a conference called Bridging the Americas held in Pensacola, FL. It blew all of my preconceived notions about the Indian Culture as a whole ( which I've gotten from old movies and old books). Hearing it from the American Indians changed everything. I now have a better understanding and greater appreciation of Indian people as the first inhabitants of this nation that I love. I'm an immigrant myself. I do pray that God will restore you as a people in your rightful place in this land of plenty and opportunity. I don't know how, I don't know when, but He will do it again, as the song goes. That Day of Restoration will come. I believe that. So be it.

I love your web page, i wish you would have more festivals throught the year, especially in the summer. I a myself am indian but from the island of cuba, (Arawak Indian)and have no knowledge of anyone else who might be from this tribe except for people in my family who still reside in that island. So its good to see people of my race in the same state I live in, hopefully I will visit the museum soon. Its so funny when you speak a different language in this country, and white folks get mad " If you are living in America, speak the language" hilarious, since english wasnt the native language of america...

I am planning on attending the festival on Sunday with my 8 year old grandson. We are both very excited and when I visited your site and saw the Powhatans had settled in Pennsauken, we were elated. My family has Indian roots and I have tried to find out a little about them. My maiden name is Crocker and we also are related to the Collins' of Delair. Wouldn't it be something if I discover my roots right here in my home. My father told me the property I live on was once all wooded and had all types of trees and he used to fish in the creek behind my house. I have berry trees in my yard now, but my father said there were walnut trees and other fruit trees here when he was younger. Look forward the learning more about the culture and introducing my grandson to his possible heritage. See you on Sunday!!

I can say I feel really proud to be a part of such a great heritage. I have met so many new friends on the long 2 year journey of self discovery and I would like to give thanks to all that have assisted!!! I look forward to the festival and sharing it with my daughter, her and I have been traveling all over the place to festivals and powwows so I can teach her the importance of where you come from and learn with her as we go. Again, thanks for everyones help!!!

I found out something very recently that I found to be appauling and, that was a group of people out of Madison, Wisconsin are putting on a 3 day excursion where they are charging people to learn about what they have termed as Shamanism; They will be putting on this workshop in Dodgeville Wiscosin at some retreat center Now if you thought that was bad it gets worse on this excursion they will be charging people for Sweats,Vision Questing and, a wide variety of other various medicine practices; In addition, the dollar amount that they are charging is outrageous it is $195 plus dollars; First of all The importance of Medicine Practices Native American or, Otherwise should not be taken lightly and, it should not be cheapend by a price tag, nor should it be sold ever for any reason; Secondly These practices are the birth-rites of the indiginous people of this and, other countries and, their cultural heritage should be treated with sacredness and, respect and, those who disrespect it by doing what these people are doing should have to pay some kind of pennance; Last but, not Least, these people have little to no real education on the subjects in which they are teaching on which makes them poor teachers and, frauds; If these people truly had wished to learn they should have obviously taken a very different approach with the understanding that, there is no guarntee that the indiginous people of anykind of Medicine Practices would teach them or, would not teach them anything at all I'm sure you can all understand now why i am angry!

This Site was very interesting! I teach the 7th grade and I try to paint a more accurate painting of how history truely unfolded. As a young child my partents told me of the nasty things that Europeans did to the Native and Original people of the American land. It has saddened me to learn about this. However, it is important that we do correctly educate ourselves to make sure that history is covered as accurately as possible. My heart goes out to all of the Native American peoples and their lost family members from the past.

I enjoyed browsing your site, and plan to return soon. I also have been researching my ancestry. I make no claims of knowing I am a direct descendant of any one person. However, I know in my heart that I respect the earth, the waters, the sky, and ALL things around me. My great-grandmother, Julia Worsham, taught me this as I was growing up with her. I miss her more than I can ever explain. We are ALL related in some way. When people show disrespect to others, it makes me sad to know that we are all the same on some level. May peace be with you all! Osiye.

Because we are all subject to difficulties that threaten to overcome our mental equilibium, may we all find the strength to go through what we must. May we all be blessed, and may the people that hurt us learn to become loving human beings. That would be freedom. (17 generations from Powhatan).

My name is Michael H. Omohundro. I have traced my ancestry back eleven generations in America. My great-great cousin is the famous Texas Jack Omohundro of the early frontier. He rode with Bill Cody and other legendary frontiersmen. I found that Texas Jack's father, JB Omohundro, was of Powhatan ancestry through his own father R. Omohundro (my great(4) grandfather). I was shocked to realize I am partially descended from the Powhatan Indian tribe.

When I was younger, Pocahontas was my favourite disney film, but I was really too young to understand it properly. Now Im 14 and have been watching all my old Disney films again. I came across Pocahontas and watched it and it really inspired me. So I thought I would find out more about this "Pocahontas". Your website has given me all the answers. Thankyou! But also, now I look at the video and think "a lot of that is just made up" and it kind of ruins your childhood memories of the story. I used to really look up to her and think "she's perfect, I wish I was her", but now, she doesnt seem so special. Im still fascinated by it all and planning to visit Virginia when Im older, but expect it will all now be buildings and skyscrapers. Id love to see where the Powhatan tribe lived. Your site has been a real help, thankyou!

To the Cheyenne girl in Oklahoma--What is even worse is that someone named MUGU had haraased some people with e-mails for 3 years. The subject of the e-mails was always this: URGENT BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS. It started out with Mr. MUGU from Leona Sierra, Africa. Each time, I deleted his e-mail and put it on BLOCK in effect, another one comes in but with a different e-mail address. If you get the e-mail with the same subject, DON'T OPEN IT! It may contain a virus. Just delete it. Don't response. Just report it to angel volunteer website organizations and they will track down the menacning person and expose him eventually. If you get e-mail with the same subject, you may want to forward it to Powhatan Renape moderator and let them know what is going on. This situation is NOT acceptable!

I find it rather funny to see all of the guestbook entries of people who may or may not be descendents of "Pocahontas" Who cares! I myself is from the cheyenne arapaho tribes of Oklahoma... Some of you may be descendents of a native american tribe but that doesnt matter if you dont know what the native people are about... I hear many other people say that they are descendents of a tribe but that doesnt really matter to me because you dont act like a native... So who cares if you are a direct descendent of pocahontas. If you really want to get involved and brag about it learn about the people and their traditions. The history is enriching but the guestbook entries make me sick! Thanks! Native Pride!!!!

Hey! I'm proud to say that I am a direct decendant of Pocahontas. when looking at her portrait i can see my long, straight black hair, cheek bone structure, lips, and eye shape in her own face. she was a bold beautiful woman. today there are at least 100,000 of her living decendants. i hope every one of them are as proud as i am.

To American people, As you all know, the War is on in Iraq. I want to let everyone know that the US marines that were captured and interviewed on Iraqi tv were the ones that were forced to watch as the Iraqi Paramilitary soldiers savaged raped female marines (and males) and sodomized them from behind so violently after ripping their pants off their exposed flesh. The Iraqi soldiers took a full viewing of the naked women (the US marines) and made mockery of them and took pictures and shot them all in the head execution style and dumped in the hole. The pictures and videotapes were on Iraqi tv. The remaining captives were paraded before the mobs and then shoved in front of Iraqi tv. One of the captives is American African woman who was a marine cook and she said on Iraqi tv that she was from Texas. Her name was Shoshana Johnson. Noticed her nervous eye movement? I need to let you all know that the Indian woman from Hopi nation in Arizona named Lori was reported missing last Sunday. I am under the impressed that she was one of the women that were savagely raped and sodomized from behind violently. Their lives were snuffed out fast. My feeling is that Lori was with those women and men. My heart goes out to Lori and many other US marines/troops.

Pocahontas was born in Gloucester, Virginia where her clan mother and her maternal relatives lived. There are two oldest Powhatan reservations that were established in the area that was under the control of the English kings even thought they had never set foot in Virginia. Those reservations were still intact by the time of American Revolution and Civil War. They had survived right up to the present. The first reservation is called Mattaponi located by Mattaponi River. On the other side of that river is second reservation called Pamunkey located by Pamunkey River. Both reservation groups are descendants of Pocahontas's aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, and sisters. So I don't know if Pocahontas was a Pamunkey or Mattaponi. Pamunkey, Mattaponi, Chickahominy, Nansemond, Rappahannock, and few existing groups were the original tribes that were members of the Powhatan confederacy.

Hey thanks for telling the real story of Pocahontas. Becuase I knew that Indians (If you don't mind me saying) were not that aggressive or mean and going around killing people. I'am, myself, African American. But I'm part Indian on both sides of my family. On my dads side I'm Cherokee but on my moms side I'm afraid I don't know. But if you can tell me that would be a BIG, BIG, BIG help. We've lived around in the Alabama area for as long as really anyone in my family (saying to ask my grandmother) can remember.

I was told when I was a little girl that I was "second cousin" to Pocahontas. I always thought this was a joke my grandfather, Charles Boling liked to tell. As far as I have been able to find out, there was a "Bolling, Boling, Bowling" etc.. line directly from Pocahontas. I have as yet not been able to locate any kind of family tree for Pocahontas that I could research to see if it might lead to my maternal family. Any help anyone could give me in this area would be greatly appreciated. I would be very proud to be able to proclaim myself a part of the Powhatan tribe. Thanks Bonnie J. Pio (Boling

President Thomas Jefferson was 1/16 Powhatan Indian. His 2nd great grandmother was Pocahontas. He had fiery red hair and blue eyes. He had a red haired son by his slave, Sally Jennings who was his wife's half sister (twenty-something age of difference). He was 45 when he sired a son with a young Sally. Interesting reality in those days...

I read some of your guest-book entries. I was really amazed at the number of people trying to trace their roots. OF COURSE, we probably ALL (or at least most of us) have some native american ancestors. Thing is, so many of us do not know for sure, but NEED the kind of roots native americans have. YOU can say "I'm from the ____ Tribe", and it really means something. So, I ask for your understanding if we, the descendents of your ancestors "murderers" seem to be trying too hard to prove we are ALSO native americans descendents.

Okay, you know what? I do agree; people are really wrong when they bash the Indians about being evil and torturing the Europeans and everything, but, whether you realize it or not, you are doing the same exact thing to the white men! I don't have any Indian blood-lines, but I think that Indians are really interesting. I read your article about the "doubly-arrogant generation," why don't you realize that you're part of it too? Racism is wrong, I think we all agree on that. You have a lot of anger, and that isn't efficient. Especially if you're lecturing others for being racist. In all your anger I think you don't realize that you're being racist too. If you want anyone to take you seriously, practice what you preach.

I just finished reading some entries in your guest book and I was a bit saddened to read some of the hateful things being said. My particular favorite entry said something like, I am John Smith's 9th gteat grandson and my ancestors kicked your asses, loser. What is that? How ignorant can one person be? I had no idea we were all living in the 1500 and 1600's still. We should not be angry or boast about past history. We should all try to find accurate details so that we may all learn from it. Being of Native American ancestory myself it only saddens me that the settlers of this time and the time that came afterward chose to try to annihilate this beautiful race of human beings. I would have loved to have seen more of your beautiful faces and had more culture integrated into our American society today. I think it is never too late to do so. I think we should all push Americans to learn more about Native Americans because I find your ways most beautiful and your loning for peace a tremendous need in todays society so filled with hate and racial tension still. As for the ignorant people who made these entries, I am sad for you that you have such hate in your heart and such a blind way of thinking. You may one day need the wisdom of these people to survive, for you never know what may be in store for you when history decides to write another chapter. You should be ashamed of yourself for being so disrespectful to this culture of people who are so excited to tell the world of thier heritage. I urge people to take a different approach towards thier fellow man because in order to survive today's crazy world, we all should. In the end the only thing that really survives is love and I think that is basically all this race of people is trying to tell us and that is all they have ever tried to tell us. Thank you for your website and your invitation to everyone to join you in celebrating your culture. Also, if the ignorant, hateful people of this world would like to educate themselves on issues of race, I recommend "The Journey Of Man" which has aired on PBS. I just watched it for the first time the other night and was in awe of what I was seeing and learning. Thank you for your time and sharing your history with me, I thouroughly appreciated it myself and I am sorry that some people decided to disrespect your website with rude and crude comments. Just know that the intelligent and compassionate people of this world have an interest in what your culture has to teach us all. Thank you.

I think one sentence will be just enough to sum up the whole history of 500 years concerning the plight of Native Americans. And I think you will agree with me. Native Americans suffered needlessly and their homeland was taken only because, you see, white men had behavior problems!!!!!! That is the basic reason for all the problems that happened between whites and Indians.

I just wanted to thank you for making this website. I appreciate the honesty and the truth. I am 35 now, but while I was growing up, our history lessons greatly distorted things. I didn't start finding out the truth until I was in my 20's living in Green Bay, and starting college. One of my best friends, who was Oneida, taught me a lot about the Oneida for one of my classes I was taking then about Wisconsin's woodland Indians. I learned so much through him, and will never forget what he taught me. The more I learned about the whites and how they "established" this country, the more ashamed I became, eventhough four of five of my origins came over in the 1930's. Thank you again.

Being part of the 16th generation of Matoaka, may the wisdom of such a young person help us all learn to return kindness to those around us. Her gift was to learn, to communicate, to empathize. We all need these gifts.

Hi, My great aunt told me that I am part Powhatan Indian, meaning my maternal grandmother was 1/2. Her maiden name was Alma Dean and she was supposedly born in White City, KS. Her mother, the Powhatan and father met in Kentucky or Tennesse before then moving to KS. She later moved to Pa. and married my grandfather Paul Tyson. My aunt told me that we may be related to Chief Powhatan. How could I find out more about this?

Being a direct decendant of Pocahontas (great, great, great, great......granddaughter) I am very pleased to see that the true story of my grandmother is out there and that our people are paying attention to what the big companies have to say about us, and making sure that there is information out there so people can know what really happened.

Did you know that one of the Mayflower pilgrims named William Brewster had a grandson who married a Wampanoag Indian woman? Yes, it is true. Millions of Americans descended from the Mayflower Pilgrims who survived the first winter in 1620-1621 (handful) and are not aware of their Native heritage. Some of the Mayflower pilgrims had grandchildren or descendants who intermarried with the Natives. Yes, it's true!

Being that nothing is done by accident,I recently move here from NY. I was involved in the 9-11 tragity. My 2 second graders had to do a report on "indians," and of the three, they most liked the Powhatans. My father was full blooded Cherokee Indian and although i didn't know much about him, i read up on Cherokees as much as possible. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to venture in to your part of the "Indian" tribe. regardless to what tribe you are from or what country, we are all GODS chosen people. Thanks again for the very interesting stories in which I have encountered.

I appreciate the account of pocahontas but feel that it holds much anger rather than fact. My 7year old daughter decided to do her first report on your tribe and history. I agree facts can be ditorted and history can be painful but choose to teach that strengh and kindness reveals. And you have to agree that part of history are the may stories. I am proud to say that regardless of how the English may have acted then, today Virginia has honored her with remeberance with Pocahontas Parkway. Please teach kindness and that all we can do is learn from the past. I believe her report will be wonderful and fun. Thank you for your wepage.

Hello my dear friends and cousins, may this new year 2003 be a peacefull, joyfull time for all of us. This forum is a very nice little "rendez-voux" place for people like us, who love indians, or think they have Indian blood and ADN in their body. I have received allready three very nice messages from "ikce wicasa" (the people, the common wild men, the Indians) or "wasicun" (the white man). I asked "Wasiya" (the great mystery of the north, the modern Santa claus) for a gorgeous, absolutly gorgeous huge, 300 pages, full colour plates of portraits of Indians, painted by Charles Bird king, George Catlin and Karl bodmer. I am happy! Wolakota! (Peace, Frienship)

I am looking to either prove or disprove, a family story, that I have Powhatan Blood. This is not easy....and I find that the Indian sites do not have enough information to try to help those of us that are searching, and don't seem to be very friendly, or interested in perhaps giving some suggestions. My family line (fathers side) is the SULLIVAN's, from Stafford County Virginia. If anyone has any knowledge of an indian line in this family...I would greatly appreciate the information! I never knew my father or his family, and he died at a young age, so it is VERY important to me to find out " WHO I AM ". THANKS! Pj

It is so important for all of us to continue to learn about each other and to also conduct as much of an independent investigation as possible. we are ONE HUMAN FAMILY and when we learn about each other, we realize how related we all are, having come from the ONE CREATOR of this ONE EARTH. thank you again and keep up all the positive work and arts and dancing that you do to bring so much light in to the lives of so many people.

My grandmother Ruby's mother's maiden name was Edith Pryor. She married an Irish man last name Bryant (John I think). Ruby married into the Dotson family (English). Both of my grandmothers are/were very much Native american indian in appearance and came from Oklahoma. I have some features.

Hi! I'm a junior at Satanta Jr-Sr High School and I was doing a History or Hollywood project on the movie Pocahantas for American History. I went to google.com an put n " "Pocahantas" acccuracy, history" and this is where it led me to. I'm not a full blooded Indian but i have abit of Cherokee in me. my family calls me Little One... they say it's my "native name" but I just think it's a nick name. Anyway the information I have found and that you have supplied me with from this site was most helpful and I thank God that i found out the truth about Pocahantas' life. It's TERRIBLE that John Smith, and Roy Disney did this. That they lied. But then again that's wat men are good at... most men are liars. thank you for your time and information, Sarah

I want to thank the brave Americans who came twice in France to save our country from the germans invaders (WW1 and WW2). Native American Indians helped a lot with the "transmission" of coded messages, because the ennemy could understand every code language made up with english, german, russian and other european-based languages, but the only one that could not be possibly understood was the one made up with different Indian dialects. Thank you again, brave Heroes, You shall never be forgotten!

Regarding the comments on the Pocahatas piece. It is sad that a people could classify another with a label Euro-American. I am no more European than The Pope is Jewish. I am an American first and foremost, my loyalties are to the sovernty and security of the United States. Furthermore, shame on you for singling out an ethnic group for woes real or imagined. Pocahantas was a cartoon produced by Disney (a company), not "Euro-Americans" (apparently caucasion people).

Sorry, I do not have any knoledge or information on Pamunkey language.I have an ancestor who might have spoken the "powhatan" fluently, I discovered him on the web, his name is William "Langaloo" Winston, the uncle of Patrick Henry the great orator who said " Give me liberty, or give me death", it says on the web that he loved Indians, dressed like them, and was in love with an Indian princess, and every body in the neighborhood was mad about the mess it caused.

Mitakuye Oyasin ! (all my relative; words spoken after many Sioux ceremonies). We may be relatives... I have a familly tree from Virginia which goes up to the beginning of the XVIIth century : Winston, Dabney, Bolling, Flemming, Bickerton. God, if only, one of them was related to the Powhatans or the Rolfes, it would make me sooooo happy. Anyway, even as a little french girl, in my childhood, I was convinced I was a little indian "wisinca" (girl). I am 52 now, I have been every where in the world, and the big dream I still have is to go to a Pow-Wow, one day. I now it would be even more exciting if I knew for sure that native-indian blood is running through my veins. Somebody mentionned in this golden book that there is a specific look with Native-Americans, among others : small nose, high cheek bones, un "je ne sais quoi", and after 14 generations, I think I have it! If somebody, with the names I gave above, could give me some information, I would appreciate it a lot. I went to see the Disney's Movie, in Paris : "Pocahontas" with my 11 years-old niece, the "Grand Rex", a great old art-deco movie theater was full of screaming kids, eating pop-corn, and at the end, when the lights went on, I think I was the only one weeping like an old widow lady, I thought this movie was so sad, but of course, it is because I feel "Indian". I was surprised, later on, to read about the true story of dear Pocahontas, (for example, when in the english court, she says "Liar" to captain Smith! Good for her !). Poor baby, twenty years old...She should be happy to know that she is, with "Thanks Giving", the most famous emblema of America. Kiss, Rica

Indian's need to be given very much credit because even now in modern life when you go and see Indian tribes and the way they live their lifes it's so cool that they don't need all the modern things we cry for Indians are truly nature people and we all should learn more about them.

As for your site,it is a light to the heart,for the eye has no joy without the heart.The words of truth resound the voices of the living waiting for us by the breath of the wind.As for man,he chooses to dive into the pond out of his thirst instead of kneeling by the pond to take the water to mouth by the hand.In his diving into the pond he faultier's the waters and destroys the beauty within.So it is with greed.Hollywood took the love of the truth and took it to task for profit.They have taken the gold for themselves and they may have it.For the joy of the lie will bring them to task in the end.As they spit on me I will smile because the truth is with the ones of understanding.As for the young noble lady in the story are the words of goodness,"She is driven like the snow for she castes her purity onto all things.Her breath is of the purity of the heart and her love is that of the time we share,for she loves the things of God and he loves her wisdom unto her thoughts.For she dwells in the things of his love and all is light to her love".From the Potawatomi,Italian,Irish,French,INDIAN :)Great,Great,Great,grandfather was a scout for the French ---->>>> Go Chief GO:)

I have just read the Pocahontas Myth. It saddens me so that this happened, Not only for the Misleading Movie of her life, but also for the sad turn of her actual life. I am one of both bloodline's, Pocahontas' and John Rolfe's. On the Euro-American side, I am deeply saddened by the actions of other Euro-Americans then and today. Why in the world do you have such hatred and disrespect for others who are not of your "kind". On both sides of my bloodline my entire mind and body, Such Lies and Animosity THEY MAKE ME SICK.. I pray for those who encounter people like you,( the Other Euro-American's), I pray YOU MAY NEVER RAIN ON THEIR SPIRIT. Amen

Continue to Educate!!! The more people learn about the THOUSANDS of years Native Americans lived in harmony with nature, without destroying it, and without losing a connectedness with the Great Spirit, the more people will recognize that your message is not only necessary, but URGENT. I suggest anyone reading Leslie Marmon Silko's "Ceremony" and "Almanac of the Dead," if you haven't already! Much Thanks for this site!

In all fairness to Pocahontas and Powhattan, their stories aren't quite complete here, either. There were some disagreements (even) in this family, and the split they caused apparently continues to this day, affecting our respective outlooks and ideologies.
Chief Powhattan married twice. His two older sons were half-brothers to Metoaka/Pocahontas and her younger brother, but the two sets of siblings didn't quite see eye-to-eye. From the tone of this site and the names I've seen, it seems obvious that many of the people at Ramapo are likely to be descendants of that first marriage.
As for Disney: They worked closely with the Pamunkey tribe before and during production, but at no time did they pretend to be making anything other than a Disney movie. It was never intended to be an historical documentary, nor was it ever presented as such -- any more than their "Hercules" was meant to be an accurate portrayal of the original Greek myth.
I couldn't agree more that it's important to tell the true story of Powhattan and our people, but it should be the full story. With all due respect, I think it should also be told without the centuries old family fights (they can be acknowledged as being a part of our story, but maybe we should work them out amongst ourselves), and not blame anyone for things they never did.
I'd love to hear from any members of this family, so if you'd like, send me an e-mail. The address above has been modified slightly to dissuade Spambots. Just put it back into the usual format to reach me.

It was wonderful to learn about the native peoples of this area, and I agree with your assessment of Euro-Americans. Every Summer I attend the Canoe Carnival in Medford Lakes, NJ. The ignorant and unevolved displays which I have witnessed are sickening. However, for the people behaving the way that they are, putting on these displays, their actions are some type of tribute to Native Americans. This sentiment continues to allude me to this day. But it is difficult to help people to understand who have been raised to think against others. Empathy and humility are scarce.

My deceased husband had Lenape ancestry and we shared the same desire to learn as much as we could. There is such wisdom in the ways of your people, I have always found it to bring me a peaceful feeling. Carole

I am a descendant of the Powhatan Confederation, specifically, the Nansemond Indian Tribe. It took me more than 50 years to uncover this fact, but when I attended the Nansemond Pow Wow in August I was made most welcome, and in fact presented with three Bald Eagle feathers, the quills of which are wrepped in the colors of the service medals of those wars. Never have I bees so honored and welcomed. Anyone having an opportunity to attend one of these ceremonies will be filled with tears of joy in the celebration. Visit the Nansemond Indian Tribe website simply by typing Nansemond Indians into your web browser..

I know there is one painting portrait of Pocahontas in England. It was hung in the Rolfe castle or mansion somewhere. It shows Pocahontas in her fancy English party dress. There is another painting of her and her son in everyday clothes. He wore a beautiful white shirt. Her facial features were obviously very Indian. Her eyes were slant. Her whole face reminds me of the actress named Jamie-something the one who appeared in "Northern Exposure" White people who are descendants of Pocahontas carry a very tiny drop of Powhatan blood from Pocahontas who was herself a fullblood Powhatan. Did they inherit her health genes also back in 1700's? Diabetes? Lazy eye muscles? Chicken bones common in Eastern Native American tribes. Look up the list of genes common to those groups, look it up in Nanticoke websites.

Like others in your guestbook, I am trying to be in touch with my Native American heritage. I were it proudly and with dignity. I would like to visit the Museum and Reservation to feel the spirit of my ancestors that lies within my bloodline. I have also found that by making my family aware of their heritage it aids them when they go seek any medical attention. Some illness and conditions of the body surround the fact that we are of Native blood and this aids in treating and diagnosing these medical conditions. It is vital that we are made aware of our heritage. It is vital that we be in touch with that heritage.

Well, I just wanted to say that I am so glad that there is a website for the Rankokas Powhatan Reservation. I used to live in Tarnsfield, a nearby neighborhood. I was in girl scouts and we always went to the festivals. I loved learning about their history, getting to see the dancing and hearing the music, and of course the jewelry. Now I live in Texas, and the nations here are very different from the one I grew up knowing. Very interesting, and I love learning more and new information, but it is so good to be able to get online and see what is going on in Jersey. I was very impressed when I found this site, and despite what some very rude people have commented on, I am so glad I found this site! It means a lot to me. The people were always very friendly, and loved to answer a little girl's many questions when she would go visit. Now I am 19 and miss getting to visit. I was always interested, still am, and fascinated by the people, thier culture, and the way they lived. I have so much respect. I hope someday I might be able to make it back for a festival. Good times. Thank you for having this site. It means a lot to even me.

Although I agree with the sadness over what happened to the Powhatan Nation, Disney only commercialized and perpetuated a myth which had been around a long time. Also, the history of the world - good or in most cases bad - is written on one group of people overcoming another group. I do find it interesting that people for some time find it desirable to be related to Matoaka. My grandmother for years claimed to be related until my father determined that we were related not to the children of Robert Bolling and his first wife Jane Rolfe, but to Robert Bolling's second wife: I don't think my grandmother ever forgave this!

My fiance' and I were at the 2002 Arts Festival on Saturday October 12. The rain did dampen the proceedings a bit but in all we enjoyed our stay and hope to come again in the spring of 2003. We enjoyed the dancers, the music, the food and of course my lady enjoyed the vendors. The Native people were kind and considerate and we loved being amongst them. Very friendly. I know the hurt the white Euro's have caused upon the Native peoples and I feel sadness in my heart over this, but at the same time I sing praises to your efforts to rebuild your nation in my state. You have done a wonderful job and I pray you all the success possible in your endeavors. I signed up for the $40. gift for us and intend to renew it every year with perhaps an upgrade in the future. Thank you all so much for the wonderful time you showed us all, and may God speed your every wish and plan. Always, Vincent abd Marilyn

We appreciate getting notices of events even though we live so far away. May God continue to bless everyone.

I am glad I came upon this site. I am writing a conference paper about Pochahontas for graduate work. I am aware of the terrible actions done by the Spaniards, but the English, Dutch and Portuguese were also very cruel and brutal. Portuguese and Dutch, by the way were the first to engage in the slave trade. About the Spaniards in Mexico, yes they might have worked them to death, but the actual records of these Spaniards' activities are registered in Spain, naturally in Spanish. Unfortunately, many of these historians and propaganda writers who want to publish, did not go to the original diaries but just took the English translations, which makes me wonder how accurate were they?

Enjoyed reading about the "-3-Sisters"-The planting of corn, beans, and squash. All your articles are very interesting! I have a great respect for the Powhattans. My line(on my mother's side)traces back to my 12GtGr Pocahontas. Thomas Rolfe & Jane Poythress had a daughter-Jane Rolfe that married Col.Robert Bolling(my Grandmother's line)and that's the connection to Pocahontas.

I have been researching the true "Pocahontas" story and came across your website. I have found it very informative. Native American culture has never been truely taught in our school system, yet it is an important part of our nation's history. I did not realize that there where so many Indian nations each with their own culture and rituals. It would be an asset to our history if every tribe were fully documented etc. If there is a website that covers this than I have not discovered it. It would be great if there where a main website which detailed each tribe and its history. Unless a famous person is associated with a tribe, unfortunately it is often over looked. Thank you for sharing your history.

But I find it so interesting that we have grown up learning about Jamestown and the heroic John Shit and the image of "Pocahontas" was always the same age as John Shit. My US History teacher who is really cool is telling us how much the movie and lots of the story are completely twisted. But I the "Pocahontas" Myth that you written is completely excellant. Its just so much fun to read the truth about something that has been branded into your brain as true. Well all in all I think your site is great. And I hope to read more soon. Laterz

I have always been fascinated with Native American Culture. As a young child and as an adult, when I see or read about the history I get goose bumps. I am 38 years old and for the first time I will be attending your Festival. There has always been a deep question in my mind to find out as much as I can about Native Americans...now that I am older I am going to pursue my dream. Your beliefs and customs are the original ways...we should all adopt your ways of life...we would be a much better place. I look forward to a fabulous and fulfilling weekend.

To the Honorable Chief Roy Crazy Horse, Although I am of White European descent (Irish) I can sympathize with your Nations history of abuse at the hands of my English/Spanish ancestors. It is very fortunate that those cruel bigots did not exterminate your people...we are all one people in the eyes of the "CREATOR". I'm pleased that Carolyn Gegarro (sorry if I mis-spelled your name Carolyn) has helped your Nation spread it's message through the internet. I was unaware of your Nation's history until I visited her web site and clicked your web site's link. I feel foolish that I am completely ignorant of your tribe's history and culture. I hope that all is well with your people and if there is anything I can do to help your Nation...please feel free to contact me. Thanks!

Hi. I am not indian but my great grandmother was Catawba Indian. I am 13. I got on this site to find some information about Powhatan for some school work. I read the story about what really happened with Pochahontas. I normally wouldn't have read the whole passage because i am usually in such a hurry to get my homework done, but i read it all today. I thought it was very interesting!! And i think it it stupid and mean that Disney rejected your offer. He should have redone the movie, or atleast made it known to people that the story in his movie is not true. The movie is not at all true! Well, thats what i have to say! Have a good day! ~Jordan~

hey everyone. I'm 20 yrs. old an an E-3 titled PFC Ward in the army right now so I will be stationed in korea until next may. Being over here so surrounded by a country with a solid heitage, you start to think of your own. In the states all of the cultures of the world live together and are blended somewhat, so being here gave me a hunger to understand my own heritage and background. I am registered as white but have 1/8 cherokee on my mothers side and unknown tribe of native american on my fathers side. I've been searching my geneology with not much luck. But did find that there are several native ward families in texas(where my fathers family lives)and several cherokee family's in Arkansas where my mothers father(john carl spillers)came from.I'm looking into it. I've been searching for cherokee folklore, and cherokee ceremonial dance. I've had luck w/the folklore but does anyone know of websites I can go to in order to find out this info. contact me at westcoastshorty_LL@yahoo.com

And does anyone have any info about Jesse "Trader" Hughes who married one of Powhatan's daughters?

I always felt it was good to lead a quiet- meaning peace pursuing life. What Wm Clark had to deal with and many other people and peace lovers in their striving to maintain or attain God's merciful justice, well, what agony it cost them to see the situation out of control. True and honest soldiers and priests need to know God first through Jesus Christ in order to become so. That is true even now. Even now, God is our victory and there is much of the same kind of injustice in so many lands. Thank you so much for your exposition. Still, there is only one way to get help for all of us who are influenced by that lower nature - to act on its whims...asking Jesus Christ into your heart, realizing He died for all of us & then being renewed by God, the Father's word, the Bible as the Holy Spirit - His Spirit which is the Spirit of Truth and a guide to those who let Him do so...that walking relationship of Father to son [as He adopts us] does exactly that - with our cooperation and the Holy Spirit's power to curb that lower nature...does it. It's the only thing/ relationship powerful enough. The truth sets us free as does our forgiving one another. We set that forgiveness in front and before any other attitude comes out: just like Jesus said: 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' In other words [I've had to tell myself] if they really understood what they were doing, they really wouldn't have done it. Hurting people hurt people. Well, on this line there is much more to say. But we need to discipline ourselves and not give an eye for an eye just because the "mighty I" says so. You've dealt in fairness with this issue and for that I am appreciative. PS Wm Clark may not have always been fair.. Proof that we must do all we can and then thank God for His forgiveness which, if we come through JC, we know we receive. "He is faithful and just to forgive and cleanse us of all our iniquities" Of course, God is not mocked...

They're trying to find groups of least 200 or more to help with establishing the necessary DNA marker data that could be used on DNA as a possible way of proofing Native American genealogy links, as paper trails often aren't' there. However you must be able to doc. your present native American blood line to help with setting this DNA Marker Base lines for others with no proof to find their family lore or grandma' story of an Indian Blood line in your genealogy background.. If your involved with Native American reseach or trying to proof out of family Lore of any types this just might be the newest tool to genealogy reseach and for future research efforts when paper trails aren't left or found DNA doesn't lie or leave you wandering about those unanswered questions about your genealogy roots ...

I have always been interested and fascinated with Native American culture, and I'm sorry for the years of injustice on your people. I have marked my calendar to attend the Arts Festival in October, and look forward to returning to tour The American Indian Heritage Museum soon. I belong to a non-profit organization in Somerset County, that host many different Arts and Cultural events throughout the year. In March of this year we hosted an event (guest speaker was John Kraft) on the Lenni Lenape Indians (which turned out to be a tremendious success, with so many people in attendance, they had to stand). I was wondering if you would be interested in coming up to North Plainfield (approx. 1 hr. drive), to provide some type of Powhatan Renape Nation event. If so, you can contact me at this email address.

Thank you for your site. As a part of the 3rd grade curriculum I teach some early history of the Colonies. I am thrilled to find your site. I try to be fair and realistic in my presentation of "facts" in a way 8-9 year olds can relate to. Your history of Matoaka completely supports my teaching about this dear, young woman, whom I don't even refer to as Pocahontas at first. Most of the students have taken the Disney movie,"Pocahontas" as gospel (as have their parents) and are surprised by the fact that she was a young girl, did not marry John Smith, and died at a young age having endured many hardships.As for her physical representation, I can't believe the animators could be accurate. My daughter is part Choctaw and Chickasaw and large-boned.I try to assure her that women with "Barbie doll" figures probably wouldn't have made it through too many harsh winters. Perhaps I am off base with my thinking but I believe we need to keep in mind who recorded most of the history of our country and the world and feel free to interpret and re-evaluate it regularly

I found your web address in a Philadelphia Inquirer article on the Eastern North American Hoop Dance Championship to be held at Rankokus Indian Reservation, Aug 10-11,2002. I'm 54 years old, a second-generation Italian-American, born in Brooklyn, living in Philadelphia. I've always been confused about the contemporary political relationship American Indians have with the U.S. states and federal government. I think it's a mystery to me because public schools don't teach anything about it, I've never lived among American Indians, and my city newspapers like the Philadelphia Inquirer rarely address American Indian issues. I was glad to find your web site and to read about the Powhatan Renape Nation and the Pocahantas myth. I found myself cheering your exposure of Disney's lies. I personally find most Disney movies extremely offensive. They continue to promote negative stereotypes of so called "non-white" people in the U.S. and abroad. Thanks for keeping up your web site -- I'm so glad I found it.

Hi, I am 50% Cherokee Indian and my mom used to have a friend and he was a drifter I liked when she tells me stories about him. One day when she was younger her and Indian Bill were in the park. There was a stray dog in the park and no one could get the dog to come to them so my mom bent down and she called him and he came right to her. Indaian Bill called her Little Wolf. Could this be a Gift from the sprits? I have the same talent with dogs. if you want to answere my question about the gift from the spirits please E- Mail me Thanks Chrissy By the way my mom is NJWOLF6041

This Message is for Jeff & all the other people who are bashing the chief, for wanting the true story of Pocahontas be told. I say let the truth be known, It's just like when they were rounding us all up to put us on reservations, no hunting,land that couldn't even grow a common weed, no speaking our own language no Dancing,feeding them rancid meat,forbidding cerimonial dances,natives getting sick dying from diseases that the white men brought with them,because the natives had no immunities to these diseases.They slaughtered all the Buffallo, trying to systmatically exterminate the indians, just like the wolves,but they did not succeed in exterminating either of them.Now it is regrouping time,& it is time that the trurh be known. And the only way that is going to happen is if an indian tells it,because The truth has never been told by the white man, they only write what they want to hear, they have to fantisize about everything, just to hide the injustices that they have committed.Well I'm tired of it! If the white man had left things alone the world would be a better place. But NO they had to have it their way,Now just try to find a some land to hunt on, you can't even eat the fish out of the delaware river anymore, houses being built everywhere, It's getting so bad that a poor dog can't even find a tree to pee on!Why make a fantasy story out of Pocahantas,Our children should be taught the truth about her. Why should we teach our children such Lies, Only to have them grow up & be disappointed when they find out the truth.In 1977 our history books were still not telling the truth, They only told the white mans side of it,LIES ALL LIES!! Well I knew the truth & I refused to do the work,They were teaching us Lies in school.I still & will till the Day I die Defend the truth instead of what the white man would LIKE for me & my children to beleive. I have to wonder why you are so offended by the truth?????

I'm so heartbroken that I missed your signing of Morrisville. I went to Barnes & Noble to at least buy a copy of it,But they had no information about it. I was so frusrtated.I Am told that my grandmother was 1/2 Native american, by a dear friend of hers, I knew she had some indian blood in her but never knew her heritage, her friend told me at her funeral That grandmom was not allowed to tell people who she was growing up because of the way people would have treated her, she was told to say that she was 1/2 Italian, because people treated Italians better than indians. It makes me so angry, & sad, sometimes I almost cry,at the injustice, that she & others have suffered. She used to call me smiling eyes, when I was a little girl,,she said even when i was crying wy eyes looked as though they were laughing.When I was 12 I read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. I have read it 3 times more since then.When I was 16 I met a man, He was a drifter type person, we became fast friends, He was called Indian Bill, He was Blackfoot.He used to tell me the stories, I missed hearing the stories since my grandmother past over,one day There was an incidedent at the park, with a stray dog, that no one could get near, I had no trouble getting the dog to trust me, & I took it home. From then on he calle me little Wolf. He said I have a natural way with dogs, therefore I must walk with the spirit of the wolf.He went away one day I don't know where, as I said he was a drifter, & I guess it was time for him to move on. I would truly like to purchase a copy of Morrisville,If I could get it signed would be even better.Could you let me know where I can purhase one?

I attended the reception for Chief Roy Crazy Horse at St. Matthews Church in Morrisville (Delair) last night. I want to thank the Chief for writing the book about the history of Morrisville and the families that founded the town. I was raised in Delair and had heard that Indians lived in Morrisville, but I did not know that they were still there. While sitting there last night I realized that I have always known some of these people, but never knew about their real heritage. Morrisville was always a quiet nice section of Delair. I have been reading some of the comments on this site and can't believe that some people are still narrow minded. New Jersey had a large Indian population and I am proud to say that I lived in Delair near these people. Thank you again Chief Roy Crazy Horse. It was an honor being in your company last night.

Thank you for your message to "The Doubly Arrogant Generation". I think we shall have opportunity to return to simplier life styles. I grew-up in the West Virginia mountains and I often long to return to the woods and cold mountain streams. I do thank God that I know how to survive without electricity and cars and computers. I enjoy the "new" things but life was another realm in those days. I prefer it there. But I live for people and the people are out here.

This does indeed seem, as someone else said earlier, like a family reunion. This is my family as well, and my heritage. Metoaka and John Rolfe had one son, Thomas, who in turn had five children with Jane Polythress. Some of them remained in the U.S., while others went to live in Great Britain. I do think, given their respective family backgrounds, it's very likely that Metoaka and John Rolfe married in the interest of bringing their peoples together. Her conversion to Christianity and her baptism as "Rebecca" would have been but another step in that process of unification. Of course there are many versions of the "true story" of Metoaka/Pocahontas/Rebecca, just as there always are surrounding those who achieve immortality. Whatever the "truth", surely she must have been a very special woman, to have made such a lasting impression in the brief space of her 23 years on earth. There are several well researched, informative -- and interesting -- books about her life and times. They are well worth tracking down and reading for those who are interested in learning what those people who were there had to say.

We thoroughly enjoyed reading the "Pocohontas Myth" on this Web site. It is a real shame that true history gets so filtered through political biases and other lenses.

I've been thinking...I know many of you expressed sadness about the tragic events that affected Pocahontas's large family and that you expressed anger or guilt about injustice surrounding her people. I remember Mormon missionaries telline me about Jesus Christ coming back to life from the dead after he beat the binding power of death. When he rose from the dead, dead people suddenly crawled out of their graves immediately according to the scripture. The missionaries claimed that if people are worthy, they would get their physical bodies back in perfect condition after death. I asked them if they mean extinct Indian tribes would come back from the dead. They looked at each other and said yeah. I realized this thought just never crossed their minds but it did mine. Imagine Pocahontas, Geronimino, and many other innocent slaughtered families come back from the dead? Would your guilt, anger, sadness melt away?

I am just thinking about what to share with you. I noticed how older Indian generations from other bigger, powerful tribes had endured everything from mistreatment to harrassment with DIGNITY. I imagine that Powhatan peoples had also endured the same problem with the same Indian style dignity through four centuries. I was told that they were placed here for a reason and that every tragic event happened for a reason. I remember reading somewhere that one of the Powhatan people had a dream one night before the first sighting of White people was reported. The dream was about a white race that was destined to come to their land in the future. The person who had that dream pondered this and talked about this with other people (I would imagine they were medicine people) They realized something was destined to happen and that their unborn generations will deal with a new people. If only Pocahontas had known that White people were treacherous, she would never have come near the ship in the first place and she would never had been kidnapped. She had no idea how greedy or self centered they were cuz she had never experienced it. She was so naive and she opened her arms and befriended them. And many tragic events followed and so much sorrow had affected her people. They suffered needlessly.

as for "Yukon" saying "there were never any Indians in New Jersey, " how ignorant! Before the State of New Jersey existed, the land there, like the rest of America, was occupied by the indigenous inhabitants who preceded the Europeans.

My grandmother on my fathers side told me all my life that she was a distant cousin of Pocahantas -- I always believed it to be because she married my grandfather, who's mother was full blood Indian. However upon her death I found out that she was in fact a member of an organization called the "Daughters of Pocahantas" in which she had to sumit documents to verify her blood connection to Pocahantas. After her death in 1983 I tried to acquire copies of those documents--my understanding is that this organization was once based in Chicago but the office there was no longer operating, and no one seems to know where the records of the members geneologies have been boxed and stored. If your organization or any of your readers might know where I might start to find these I would appreciate their direction on this matter. Thank You.

Chief Roy Crazy Horse, thank you for telling the true story regarding Matoaka, I have always wondered what really did happen during her life. Is it true that Matoaka was one of the first of the Powhatans to become a Christian? I also heard that most of the Powhatans are Christians too, is that true too, or not? The way Disney told only their version of the life of Matoaka is another example of the wrongness of the white men have done to your people and the other tribes. I am ashamed of how my past descendants have treated the native Americans. Best regards, Gary

from Arlene Whitlock's post:
"I was going to show my students the Disney Pocahontas".

Well, I am certainly relieved that "as a History teacher" you decided against substituting a Disney CARTOON in place of normal instruction methods. As a teacher and parent, I see far too many in my field who are nothing but overpaid baby-sitters. They see nothing wrong with flipping-on a video, since the subject matter of "the Show" vaguely resembles the course of study. Meanwhile they are free to read a newspaper or book, grade papers, and do their nails; "while the kids are watchin' their Show."
I do not think that the creators of Disney's "Pocahontas" ever intended for it to accurately depict Native American culture or Historical events. It is merely ENTERTAINMENT not valid educational curriculum. In school, teachers are supposed to instill knowledge and a love of learning in their students. Children already watch enough TV that they don't need that lazy habit reinforced when they attend classes.
I would suggest that as an extra credit project; offer your students the option of watching "Pocahontas" on their own time and then have them conduct actual Historical research (outside of class time). That way, they might even have to go to the library instead of just watching cartoons. Next, they could write and submit a report which chronicles the inaccuracies of the movie versus the actual characters and events. (History Versus Hollywood)

You know.......when Pocohantas died on the ship on way to her homeland, I honestly couldn't help but wonder if she was maybe deliberately made sick or "murdered" so as to not be able to tell her people about the English. We're talking about a woman who saw all the things in England and I wouldn't be surprised if she would be telling some horror stories. And I truly believe her body should be returned and not kept in England! I would like for this website to start a petition drive to bring her body back!

I am also from many nations some from over in europe but my main one is right here. I am decended from the Powhatan Tribe of Virginia. Pocohuntas was one of my grandmothers. I came down through the Rolf's and Bollings and Flemings. I am proud to be part indian. The Powhatan Tribe was on my mothers side of the family but my father was also part indian on his parents side. They were from Georgia and were part Creek Indian. Now that I am married, my husband has Cherokee Indians in his family history . I know this may sound funny but even though my family didn't speak of our being part Indian when I was growing up in Virginia I always knew it in my heart and had met some of the Pamunkey Indians when I was a small child and one Special Chief who was Chief Cook gave me my Indian name when I was very small. I started hearing about my family history when I grew up and started doing the research. It has been wonderful and very long. I am trying to teach my grandchildren about their familys history now so they can keep it alive. I also have told them not to believe anything they see in the Disney movie which I think was a total injustice to the memory of a great woman and an Indian nation. I do visit the Pamunkey Reservation from time to time they have a museum and a small small gift shop there and wonderful ladies that run it. They are very inforative and willing to answer questions and help you understand their culture and they have handouts about Pow-Wows. I have attended a number of these and enjoyed everyone. I want to thank you for haveing this webe site for us to send our messages on.

Dear concerned person, It does not matter what you think. The point is there are people wanting to educating other people about who were here first and if there are people that can prove they descended from original peoples then fine, they carry the blood of the people who lived a good life before the coming of the White man. Indians, non-Indians, mixed bloods, can learn from history and it is still possible to live a good life as the Indians had set a good example by actions, not words about how it is still possible to live a good life in harmony. We have a long way to go about achievin world peace and harmony in midst of God's sacred creation.

His message holds much truth and wisdom. If only the leaders of our country could feel as strongly as he does about the future of our children and our world. This is leadership in it's most perfect form. It is this basic care for the land and it's people that draw me to my Native American brothers and sisters. I myself are not of Indian decent however my heart will always be. I commend you on your efforts to spread this message, and join you in doing so. My God Bless you and all that you do. Wado, Kevin B.

I came to your Art Festival last year and I will definitely be there this year also. I had purchased a painted turkey feather that I absolutely adore. Also I am researching my family history. I know that one of my grandmother's grandparents was Native American. My grandmother told me many horrible stories of what was done to her ancestor's people. She would also never admit and neither did anyone else in her family that they were Native American. I'm proud to say that I have some Native blood in me am and reading up on everything that I can. Your site along with some other great ones were recommended by good people so I know that what I read is true. It hurts me deeply to see how those before us have been treated and still are to this day because of being an "Indian". One day it will change. Peace.

Sadly, you are not of Indian heritage? Oh please! Stop that nonsense! You are here for a reason. You was not born by accident. Please read "Embraced by the Light" written by a Sioux woman about her near-death journey to the spirit world and her discovery of why different races are here for a reason. Check it out! I wish people would just appreciate their own individual beauty. God loves each and all! As for the Green surname, there is no doubt that it is a common surname. Who cares if it happens to be a popular name? I saw a website somewhere on internet that confirmed that the Menguioen (excuse my mispelling) people were indeed Chickahominy, Pamunkey, etc. It was confirmed by historians and researchers (not by wannabees or novice Indian wannabee genealogists)

I recently wrote a research paper in college on Melungeons because I am descended from two different families of Melungeons. One of them seems to be a Powhatan line. My great-great grandmother's name was Polly Green(e) and her and my great-great grandfather, Joseph Buchanan, lived in the southeastern part of what is now West Virginia. I have learned through my research that Green(e) was a popular Powhatan sur-name and descriptions of Polly fit classic Melungeon traits.(I even have the "bump" this far away from her line.)I would really love to have any information anyone is willing to share (and I'll share mine.) on this particular sur-name or even if I have a relative out there somewhere in the Powhatan line I'd enjoy hearing from you.

As a direct descendant of Pocahontas and John Rolfe, I grieve the mistreatment of Native Americans by those who have settled this part of the world. It is my hope that we as Americans will become people of our word and honor those treaties and agreements made with the original inhabitants of this great land.

natives? Jewish? Ya-yo-wah? remote connection between natives and jewish ancestors? Very interesting. The Mormon church claimed that the Book of Mormon tells a story of Native American people's Jewish ancestor named Lehi who sailed from the Middle East region across the ocean to America.
USA - Wed Apr 17 22:01:37 2002 from
I am from the Arawak speaking people of the Caribbean. We are Taino. I have done research on the natives people of America and it lead me to a book called History of the American Indian by James Adair. His account comes closest to what I have encountered. He explains that the Natives of the Americas are the Lost Tribes of Israel. I also read something in a book called Christopher Columbus: the age of discovery, where it says that when Columbus came here, he used two interpreters to communicate with the Natives. They were interpreters of Hebrew and Aramaic. Another history book originally published in France in the early 1900`s says the Bartolomeo De Las Casas also says that the Natives of the new world were the Ten Tribes of Israel who were exiled. Another book called Cristobal Colon: textos y documentos completos, is Columbus`s account of his journeys to the new world. It`s supposed to be the account of the conquest of the "Indios" but yet it dedicates a whole chapter to the Biblical history of the nation of Israel up to the birth of Columbus. You have to ask yourself, why would a man live almost 40 years with the "Indians" to study them and document how he believes that they are the Israelites? Why would Columbus use interpreters of Hebrew and Aramaic to interpret to a people he supposedly had no knowledge of? Why would De Las Casas say that we were the Israelites if we weren`t? And why would Columbus include at detailed account of the history of Israel in his documents of the conquest of the Native people of America? If this is true, which if you analyze the authors of the documents, you would agree, then that means that the Native People of America have to trace their geneology from their fathers and not their mothers. The Jews of today also trace back from their mother but the Bible clearly states "the FATHERS of the promise" and when you read the book of Chronicles, all of the tribes and families are from their Fathers. I have a friend who is a Cheif of the Aniunkwia(Cherokee)people and I asked him the name of the Creator in which he replied... Ya Ho Wah. This is also how it is spoken in Hebrew. In my native language it is spoken Ya Ya, which is also what Moses was told at the "Burning Bush" incident. Practically all of the Native peoples of the Americas call the creator Ya Ho Wah, or Ya ha Wah, or something similar. There are alot of people who claim Native descendancy but if you look at the deception of the "conquistadors" you have to submit to the fact that you may not be. My geneology is traced back to a Taino Kaseeke named Guarionex who was one of the last defenders of my people during the enslavement. I hope to meet more native people that may be able to add to the information I have and also, I want to tell all Latin American people that you are also Native Americans and should not consider yourslef different from the Pohatan or Cree or any other Nation or Tribe... It`s time to unite as the Nation we once were and claim place as the nation of Israel. Peace

I have been reading your web pages and find myself cheering for your drive to set the tides of lies to light and truth! About The Disney Movie Pocahontas I have always gotten livid about this picture if not for the untruths in the writing the simple fact they used an Asian woman as a model for their drawings of her and she looks unmistakable Asian not Powhatan. Tees me off!! But hey Nobody can ever accuse the white man of being HONEST!.. They screw up all other History why should this be any different. It goes back to the old saying. "History" is exactally what it says "His Story". By that they usually mean the white man's story. They want us to believe everything they write believe nothing that is true. Well keep up the Honesty.

I read all of your messages. I understand some people are lookiing for information on their powhatan grandparents that married outside of their tribe. Did you know that there was a law back in 1940's in Virginia that PROHIBITED intermarriages between Powhatan Indians and White people back in the 1940's??? Yes, it is true. That is why they went out outside of Virginia state to go to nearby state like West Virginia or North Carolina just to apply for the marriage license!!!!!! Very easy! Just look up that true story in the book called "Pocahonta's People Through Four Centuries" by Helen Rountree. Maybe that is why you guys had trouble looking for records on your Powhatan Indian grandparent that was supposed to be listed as Indian. THeir marriage records are in nearby states, not in Virginia ( I mean POwhatan INdians married their white fiances outside of VIrginia and came back to their new homes in Virginia. And Powhatan Indians married other Powhatan Indians, well, finding marriage records on them is easy since they are all located in the state of Virginia. You get the point now.

You may not think this is important, but as a woman in this sexist and racist society, I think I know something of being treated like less than a full human being, although I do not pretend to know what it's like to be native American. Anyway, my point is that we are all human and deserve to be treated with respect. I believe we'll get there, although it looks pretty bad right now. This site brought tears to my eyes.

Before Pocahontas set foot in England, someone lied to her saying that John Smith had died. She believed it and moved on. After she arrived in England after she was kidnapped with the assitance of two Indians who betrayed her, she was started to get a visitor that turned out to be John Smith. She was very upset to learn that he was not dead and to learn that someone had lied to her. Lying was considered a very serious offense to her people. She turned her back on John Smith and she did that to hide her face. You should read the book about her. It is called "Pocahontas's People Through Four Centuries" You might find it interesting that the private company from England that first sailed to Virginia was the one that paid for Pocahontas' residence expenses in England like that if I remember right. I never knew that the company paid her bills!

To greywolf115@hotmail.com, You mean Native people could have had been evil in the early days?? If they were, they would be no different from European peoples. Look at the English and French, they killed each other! The Scots and the French were allies. Together, they fough and killed the English. The English people may seem to be victims but look at how they individuals had killed Indians. Which race is more evil than the other? Maybe Indians were the only ones that were more demoractic than all the other peoples. If you read about the Iroquois confederacy, their quest for peace was based on their leader's dream. That dream eventually led to the realization of older and younger brother type meeting houses, that their tribal goverment consisted of. Later on, Benjamin Franklin, one of American leaders visited the Iroquois leaders and were impressed with how they governed themselves and borrowed their concepts. As a result, a senate house was established for a meeting place, etc. Check this out. Try typing "Iroquois Confedracy" in search box in yahoo.com. Maybe someone can explain it better than I.

Hello, When I read "The Double Life of Pocahontas" by Jean Fritz, my first thought was, "I wonder how the Powhatan people feel about this legend." I'm very happy that your site and your comments are here for all to read. I would love to read more about your legends and historical accounts. I'm sure that there are many people that would like to learn more about Native American history. Again thank you for your side of your story.

My family 'roots' are in and around Burlington Township...Last names are Camp, Horn, Bailey and Pierce...There is some history that connects us to Native blood...(is that Politically Correct?)...some in my family are listed as basket makers...but I have no 'solid' proof...as yet...What is most interesting, is where I 'ended' up as a child...which would be...the Brazilian jungle...I lived for eight years skin to skin with a amazonian tribe...Oddly enough...my father gathered his wife and children in 1962 and took us out of a rather meaningless life in Deptford, NJ...and put us smack into the jungle...the story is that my father one day received a calling to become a missionary...but I think...there may have been 'other forces' at work...I believe...that perhaps my father was following an unknown voice...which sent him looking for something more than souls to save...This is just a thought...can anyone add to this...I don't even know why I am posting...I just want to hear from others who may also have similar experiences...My Krinkati name (Brazilian tribal name) is cranhe...translated...Bone Head...;} Actually Head Bone...(I was nearly bald until age three)...;}

Did you people know that the book called "In the Spirit of Crazy Horse" was written by a man who is descendant of Pocahontas? This man is the first cousin of Chris . He and Chris both descended from Pocahontas. Chris and I are both cousins (very distant). I had known for many years that a lot of, if not all, my cousins in Virginia descended from Pocahontas. It was common knowledge. My ancestors were Thorntons, only people in Virginia would recognize that name. The senator, Warner in Virginia is my distant cousin, I was told by a distant Thornton cousin from Bethsheba, Maryland, not far from Washington, DC

Oh I meant that the interpreter worked with the Powhatan leaders and the British government during the early 1600's. I also recall vaguely that he was paid for his work with some land and a home-something like that.

I remember reading about the interpreter that worked closedly with the Powhatan leaders and the British government. It is mentioned in the book that is only a few years old. It was new when it came out in 1992 if I remember right. It's called "The Pocahontas's People Through Four Centuries" By Helen Rountree. You can see the photo copies inside that book that show tbe remaining full blood Powhatans that survived right up to 1980's. Check it in your local public library.

I think the site is great! But I am also trying to find information about an ancestor. He came over about 1607 and was sold by Capt. JOhn Smith to Powhatan's tribe. He married an Indian girl and became the official interpreter between Powhatan and the British Government. All I know is his last name was Spillman(?). Also does anyone know where the Kincaid/Kinkade (other spellings) came into the family of Pocahantas's decendants? I would like to explore these lines in more detail. Keep up the terrific work at this site.

I was given my name of Thunder Cloud by Chief Cook who is now in his 90's of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe here in Va. My ancestors were Flemmings who married into the Pocahontas John Rolfe about three generations after them. I am still doing research on them but need input on Carr Flemming if anyone out there can help please do. I also get very angery every time I see the Disney movie or commerical about that cartoon movie about Pocahontas. They may have felt that, it was only a story but many small children who do not know the real history and watch cartoons all the time will go for a very long time beliving what they see in that cartoon movie as the way things happened. I didn't even like the landscape in the movie that was even wrong. I live in the area where she grew up and doesn't look anything like that. Most of the land on the east side of Va and the Northern Neck of Va is very flat with very few clifts. There are also a lot of marshes. I would love to hear from others.

I know that I have Native American roots but I am totally lost as to where they are or how to find them. My name is not the true name of my family. My grandfather changed it as he fled Virginia many years ago before may birth. He took the name Walker from a billboard as he travelled north to hide from whatever his past created. This was told to me by my father as he sat before me dying of cancer. He never mentioned his family or past ever before he started to die. The only thing that I know for sure is that when I was little, we often visited an aunt who was fullblooded American Native. I remember very little about her except she used to chant and and talk about the "Great White Eagle." My father also mentioned this eagle at his death. I understand that it is very difficult to identify any tribes from the east because they were displaced by settlers when they first arrived. If anyone can offer any assistance, please do so by email. I will continue to visit the Rankokas Reservation every year for the Annual Arts Festival until I find the truth.

As a 5th generation Euro-American I am often troubled with grief, shame and anger regarding the actions of our ancesters.

Oh, one more thought to share here. Before Captain John Smith met Pocahontas in 1609, it was common knowledge in England that King Henry VIII ordered his henchmen to chop off his second wife's head (Anne Boley, mother of Queen ElizabethI). Chopping off the offender's head was common in 17th century England, not in Pocahontas's Powhatan confederacy homeland (now known as state of Virginia).It is obviously to me that Captain John Smith had lied when he claimed that Chief Powhatan threatened to have his warriors chop off his head with Pocahontas rushing to save him from the severe blow. 400 years later, the truth finally came out that Captain John Smith was actually a honored guest in the Chief Powhatan's eyes after he was found lost, hungry and cold. It is amazing when we learn the real truth. Captain John Smith had lied but no one knew that or questioned his claims for 400 years! So I am happy to know that Chief Powhatan and his people were really not bloodlusty murderers. Did you know that it was a group of Powhatan males who brought armfuls of corns to the settlers of the group of Captain John Smith. Yes, it is true!!!! Well, enough have been said here.

I remember reading something somewhere many years ago that a Comanche chief Quanah Parker's white mother, Cynthia Parker was said to be descendant of Pocahontas. That meant Quanah Parker's descandants who are enrolled Comanches are also descendants of the Pamunkey Tribe of Virginia. Interesting combination of intertribal blood. Cynthia's Parker ancestors were originally from Virginia and her large family of relatives left in several wagons heading out west state by state. Funny, Cynthia Parker's father and my gg-grandmother Rebecca Parker's father both had the same name : John Parker. Rebecca herself was born in 1860 in Tennessee on the very day her mother died right after the birth labor. It sounded like a excessive loss of blood to me and my feeling is that birth took place in a cabin. I had personal family history notes that mentioned a John Parker and a Nancy Anderson of Tennessee, the parents of Rebecca. I researched Rebecca's parentage line and found to my surprise that Rebecca's mother was documented as unknown on the death record where it indicated that Rebecca died in 1944 at age 89. She outlived her son and daughter in law! They both died one year apart two years earlier and one year earlier. I remember seeing the photo of Rebecca and her eye glasses sitting atop her obvious wide prominent cheekbones. I was told that prominent cheekbones run in the family. I know it might sound silly but I remember grandmother Gray used to take her glasses off and show her high cheekbones. I was fortunate to have family notes that said Rebecca's mother was Nancy Anderson because I recieved the copy of death record that said the deceased Rebecca's mother was written as unknown. I was told that Rebecca's father John Parker married for a second time and his second wife, Melissa was half Indian. He used to drive a steam boat up and down the Chocolocco River in eastern region of Alabama. This was where Melissa was from. John's daughter, Rebecca from his first marriage looked Indian, too. Made me wonder if his first wife, Nancy Anderson was Native (she died during child birth labor) in southwest region of Tenn. in 1860 outside of Memphis.

I have an ancestor who married a descendant of Matoaka. Her name was Mary Kennon and she married John Bolling. My Grandmother Kennon was Cherokee and her Grandmother was born in 1834 in McMinn County, TN. I am very proud of my ancestry and am sad when I read about how our people were treated by the whiteman. I am also Irish, Scottish and German. I just recently joined the Amonsoquath Tribe of Cherokee and my Chief, Running Bear, lives in Van Buren, MO. They have applied for Federal Recognition, but have not attained it yet. My Grandmother's family were not found on any of the various Rolls, but my Father and Aunts and Uncles have all told me that my Grandmother was Cherokee. I was 12 when she passed away and she was about 4'9" tall with jet black hair and very dark brown eyes. She was also dark skinned. I, however, am light skinned, blonde headed and with blue eyes. Obviously the Irish, Scottish and German came through more dominant on me and my brothers. My Father is brown headed and brown eyed as was my Mother. This is not the first site that I read about Pocahontas and the Disney mess. I have seen pictures of her and she wasn't a beautiful woman either. If our people knew what the whiteman was going to do, we would have done our best to keep them off our soil. I do not like the idea of celebrating Christopher Columbus' day either as he was bad news for our people as well. To praise him for discovering something that was not lost is idiotic. We were here long before him and we are here long after him as well.

Oh yes, I forgot one more thing to share with you. I remember the Navajo woman's friend, a white woman that once owned a store in Alexandria, that specialized in Southwest cultures. She told me that the reason Pamunkeys and Mattaponis were being denied Federal Recognition is that they were married to White and Black people. She also said that they lost their talents. That was back in 1995. She looked down on the Pamunkeys and the Mattaponis. She looked up to the Navajos, Apaches, etc because they still have cultural talents. I remember the time I asked my Navajo friend if she had ever been to Pamunkey/Mattanponi pow wows, she said no and expressed no interest. I find it curious that bigger tribes with more full bloods that apparently look down on eastern tribes. I remember a Nez Perce/Filipinoo friend of mine telling me about his childhood and how the Nez Perce/Yakama fullbloods lookded down on him and his sibllings because they were half Filipino. There seem to be a lot of put-downs even between tribal members in tribes. But today I realized that blood quatum policy was started by clever, far sighted men like George Washington to reduce tribes and keep them divided and use intermarriages as justification for deeming them extinct. I realize that blood degree should not be the factor used to determine how much Indian you are. Well, which part of you is Indian and which part is not indian? If you know in your heart that your grandparent was Pamuneky then ovbiously you are Pamunkey, not part Pamunkey. This argument is now being used by more and more tribes out west in places like Sioux tribes. They tribal elders realized just last year that their tribal enrollment numbers are getting too low because their grandchildren who are full Indian, are 1/8 sioux, 1/8 crow, 1/8 arikara, 1/8 cheyenne and not one of them is 1/4 or more for each of their four respective tribes. According to their tribe blood quatum rule, they have to be at least 1/4 sioux or cheyenne or crow or arikara in order to enroll. The elders realized the Federal government can deem their grandchildren legally extinact only on paper and can erase their existence on paper. The elders decided to fight back this genocial law called "blood quautum". This issue is ALL over the country NOW! For more information, type Cleg Iron Wing in search box and look up her website The Cherokee people are planning to fight the Federal government and want to abolish the blood quotum law because Cleg Iron Wing says "We Indians have the right to love outside of our nations, and if we have children half black and half indian, hell they have the birth right to our cultures, traditions, languages, customs, "

I have read all the people's entry comments. It took me 2 hours to finally finish reading all of them and now it is already one hour after midnight. But it is worth it. If it was not for the Pocahontas movie that came out, the floodgates of people responding here would not happen here. About 15 or 16 years ago, I already knew that Pocahontas's descendants were scattered all over the Unites States of America. They come in almost every family surname, size, skin color, and shape. The movie version of Pocahontas was messed up. In reality, she was actually 9 years old when she met John Smith in his 40's. She did not have big boobs that the movie producers made her out to be. I am trying not to laugh. I know this is so funny but they did that to make big money. They know big boobs appeall to American public espeially in HOllywood, CA. I myself visited Mattaponi reservation with a friend of mine named Aaron Burr who is descended from Pocahontas. We met the Mattaponi tribal member named Minnehaha Custalow who was in charge of the mueseum. She did look Indian with her prominent cheekbones and dark hair and she got her very light skin from white female ancestor that married a Mattaponi Indian. When Aaron Burr told Minnehaha that he was descended from Pocahontas, she acted like it was very boring and as if she had heard it thousands of times. My girlfriend who is white, innocently asked her if the painting was for sale. Minnehaha suddenly yelled at her and said "It is not for sale!" My friend looked just startled and did not even say a word in response to that. Next, we met another male tribal member also named Custalow in another cabin-like musuem just a few feet from Minnehaha's mueum. I can't remember his first name. Maybe it was Ted or something. I know the first name was short. Anyway, he showed the rock on which Pocahontas used to wash her hair. Well, anyway, he wanted to put paper head bands with paper feathers on my friend Aaron and a black friend named Washington. I knew immediately that Mr. Custalow just wanted to make fun of them by offering to take pictures of them with their paper head bands and paper feathers on their head. I was the only one who was smart enough to not to accept the paper head bands and paper feathers that Mr. Custalow offered. I was the only one who sensed something. Mr. Custalow and Minnehaha probably laughed and ridiculed my friends behind their backs after we left the reservation. My feeling is that Mr Custalow and Minnehaha really do not care if visitors are descendants of Pocahontas. He and Minnehaha just want MONEY, MONEY, $$$. That is all they care about. They only care about their own people and that is it. They also knew that they are endangered people because there are not very many Mattaponi full bloods now. For this reason, they are hurt and want desperately to remain Indian even though they know sadly that they do not speak their native language fluently and for this reason, they are angry at white people and they want to be left alone. If they react hostile to you, remember they react negatively to the white skin or black skin they see on you, remember they react to what they see, not the real you so don't take it personally. And remember they are just only human beings, no different from you. They sneeze, cough, wipe their noses when no one is looking, they are no different from us. They are just human beings with their own daily struggles and personal problems. I remember a Navajo woman who used to work in the office of Indian Selection Committee-something in Washington, DC and she and her good friend, a white woman who used to own an Indian store in Alexandria that specializes in SOuthwest arts and cultures. They told me that tribal members on Mattaponi and Pamunkey reservations are not real Indians because they lost their languages, powhatan spirituality, and traditions. And that most of them are married to white people and black people. The Navajo woman, in my mind, had looked down on the Mattaponi people and the Pamunkeys. In my mind, when this Navajo woman, I can still hear her whispers in my ears, she says they are not real Indians, when she talks of them, the first person I think of is Minnehaha and funny I will never forgot how shocked I was when I saw and heard Minnehaha screamning off my friend's ears "THis painting is NOT for sale". Minnehaha acted very anglo both in atittude and behavior. She had behavior problems. And you people, who obviosuly live in fantasy world because you imagine Indians to be still now what they really were YESTERDAY. Some of you wrote letters to Pamunkey and Mattaponi tribes but never heard from them, well, try knocking their doors. Try being assertive next time. None of them are pure blood Indians. They see themselves both as not only Indian but also White. so the identity of these two tribes is very complicated now. We are in 21st century. As for Pocahontas, I know that she was from her mother's clan, spokeswoman, representative of her people, peacemaker, etc. All tribes had clan systems like the Pamunkeys. When she befriended John Smith, that decision on her part had eventually affected the future of all the tribes located west of Alqongquin Atlantic seaboard. What happened to Pocahontas's people is now happening to the Navajo, Hopi, Apache, and hundreds of other tribes. Read "People's People Through Four Centuries" by Helen Rountree. I remember reading a story about a white woman and her near-death experience. She was hit by a car and had stopped breathing. She found herself passing over to the spirit world and traveling in the tunnel and she met her ancestors and the oldest one she met was St. Peter. They told her that within 5 years, her relative was appointed to die to go home to the ancestors. This woman woke up and found herself in the hospital. She told her relatives about the prediction but they laughed. But 5 years passed and sure enough the relative had indeed died. So if you people want to know who your Indian ancestors, I am sure you will find out the truth if not in this life time but in the next world where your ancestors live now. Suppose you die today and find yourself on your near-death journey and find yourself in an reunion with your desceased relatives, ask them what tribe you are from, and they will tell you themselves maybe along with more stories of what actually happened that were not in American history books or genealogy family history notes. I know your ancestors are alive. They live outside of their physical bodies that simply expired. But not their souls. They are eternal spirits.

chief crazy horse & nation members, your website says you have no time to reply, but i hope perhaps anyone within your people will notice this post & possibly help me to find an answer... i am a 12th generation descendant of the family of taliaferro, with my original immigrant ancestor having been given a vast land grant on the rappahannock river in the mid- 1600's. there is record of my ancestors having owned- embarrassingly- a plantation called powhattan, in virginia long ago... we are originaly traced to england, & from there back to italy, so i thought there was a chance someone may know how to find out more info on this location, & possibly why a white family would have named their plantation after a native chief &/or tribe- no disrespect intended- especially considering the thinking of their times?? this has been so far one dead end after another, if anyone can be of any assistance, i would be most grateful. all the blessings, respectfully, sheri "red". please relpy to my email if you would...

Where in my post did I say I was better than you? Where did I say "we" were better? All people are people, period. No better, no worse, just people. What I DID say was that, given NAs past, it seems unlikely there would be a great, advanced nation of NA people today as you would like to believe. You were still in the stone age when Europeans arrived. There is nothing to suggest that would have changed for another few thousand years. I never said you would not be here were it not for Europeans. I said it was unlikely your culture would have advanced. You would still have been in the stone age. Maybe, as in Africa, some tribe would have, eventually dominated, and subjugated the rest. History shows that to be the pattern of all peoples.

Yes, what my people did to your people was tragic beyond belief, but that can be said for many peoples of the world. Thing is, most of those peoples got OVER IT. They moved on and into the modern world. There is nothing wrong with being "brown" deep inside. Just as there is nothing wrong with being "African" deep inside, or Asian deep inside. There is everything wrong with a victim mentality which endures from one generation to the next. When my ancestors took your land, it was common practice to do so. Even NA tribes took the land of other NA tribes. They took the women of other tribes in raids. Tribes literally committed "genocide" on other tribes as well. When warriors from opposing tribes met by chance, they went at each other in contests to the death. Your history is not one of nonviolence you know.

You seem to think the "Talkers" won WW2 for us. They were just ONE facet in a complex operation. They were helpful, yes, but far from THE deciding factor.

Yes, yesterday is yesterday. Today is a new day. Isn't it time to do away with the shackles of history and face the reality of today? As long as you weigh yourself down with the past, you will have little future.

Ok, so your people had a greater sense of nature and the natural order. Fine. But what did they do with it? They remained the same for thousands of years, and, had we not come along, would have remained in a primitive condition for thousands of years more. If the original native people to Mexico had continued uninterrupted, they would have conquered Native American peoples as well. You think they were above wars and land grabs? Hardly. We just got there first, that's all. The NA's were constantly fighting among themselves. They were not all sweetness and light either. I really get tired of Europeans being blamed for all NA's ills. We advanced science and learning of all kinds. Sure it was used for bad as well as good. That's life.

We DO worry about future generations. That's why we are constantly searching for new ways to produce more food and new sources of energy. Cleaner sources of energy. We are moving toward electric cars and cleaner technologies. The lessons of the past are not lost on us just because we are not tree huggers. We want the Seventh generation to have a good life and we are working towards that end. Only we see it differently. We see it as moving towards an easier life, with more automation. To sending that seventh generation to other worlds as we know full well, one day this world will end, regardless of what we do to it. What man does pales by comparison to the forces of the universe. ONE volcano recently put out more pollution than man has for the last 50 years. We are pissants compared to "nature." It is the height of arrogance to claim you and you alone know what the "true" way should be. Try integrating with modern society instead of holding up on reservations. The world has changed. It changed for my ancestors, as it has for yours. My ancestors were conquered and displaced as well. The difference is mine went on to move into the new reality and flourish. Living in the past didn't work for mine, nor will it work for yours. Sure my ancestors did terrible things to yours. It's over. It's not going back to how it was. I just get really tired of me taking the blame for your problems. I did nothing to any of you. You don't like the Native Mexicans being vilified, yet you have no problem doing so to us.

My first contact with people outside my family was at the Redbird mission in Clay County Ky. We were known to be of mixed race Native American ect. I didn't find out about the Matoaka conection until I did research on our family tree. I feel I am a brother to the Powhatan. My family has numerous Cherokee ancestors in our tree.

It's good to know that the language is still alive -- I'd like information on learning it, if there is any. Each generation is responsible fo learning from those preceeding it what is good -- and therefore worth keeping intact -- as well as what mistakes were made, so as to avoid repeating them. The ways of the Powhattan Confederacy have been kept alive in hearts and minds through the generations. Its power is still felt, even by those who may not know it by name, or where the ideas originated. So far as I know, the Pamunkey, in Virginia, also have stong ties to the Powhattan confederacy, and keep many of its traditions alive.

Thank you so much for the wonderful information. Iam a very proud 19 year old Metis student attending a Suntep program at the University. For those who do not now what this program is, it is a teaching program offered to Metis and First Nations people who want to become a teacher. I do not know much about my Aboriginal background. One of my assignments is to show stereotypical/racist views of Aboriginal people. I have choosen to use the Pocahontas doll and movie I have. I did not know there was a group called Powhatan. I found out many things from this website. I had no idea that the movie was suppose to be based on a true story. I knew that many things were wrong in the movie but I did not realize how much. I do not think many people in my class even now about this so I will be sharing this story with them. Now that I have found out information about the Powhatan people I can explain how the items I have choosen can be reformatted to show positive view of Aboriginal people. Thanks for setting the record straight. I really enjoyed this website.

It is the self contained thoughts of the prevailing ego that has brought the world to this point of careless destruction. The ego wishes to be king, to be respected by all, and will let nothing convince it otherwise. It must constantly reassure itself of its worth and efficiency, regardless of the harmful consequences of its actions. It does not see these things, it only sees its own perfection. Even worse than this, the ego lets one forget their Soul. It is too swept up in its self to remember that what drives it is infinitely tied into all the workings of the universe, and because of this, it becomes separated from all such things. This world has always been ruled by egos, it is the Spirit World, the release from mortal suffering, that is ruled by the righteous, and it is here that we must all conduct our war against selfishness and greed. It is fear and anguish that we must overcome, not each other. We must trully unite in the Spirit as G-d wished it to be for us when we were all created, and it is through the shamans and medicine men, priests and rabbis, artists and musicians, saints and martyrs, that we will find it. It is not easy to find the Soul, one must disregard all the physical limitations of their surroundings, one must dismiss all thoughts of failure and doubt, and sink into themselves. This task could take 30 seconds, or 30 years to accomplish, and every last individual on this planet must go through it to change this world back into something beautiful and forgiving. I can only hope that something will motivate the people of this world to seek out this truth and make it the focal point of all of our experiences. G-d bless, and I hope I will be welcome when I come and visit.

I am the great niece of the now decease Chief Talking Eagle. It has now been the past 10 years that I am tracing my ancestors, and learning the cultural.

Her sister was married to my husband's great-great grandfather and my son was very curious of the history and background of the tribe they came from. The information we received here was quite useful and I was grateful we had access and that it was available. Thank you for the history lesson and the power in our country.

As an american indian first and proud indian parent second, I would like to let those who visit this website take a minumte to reflect about how the children of the world, not just America perceive the American Indian. After working in the school systems with a "reproduction"company, that does history reproductions, it makes me sad to know that I was required to dress in 17th century indian dress, and do face painting (tipis, thunderbirds, etc.). The children I worked with in grade school informed me on everything from "Indians no longer exist" (because they don't see indians in tipi's wearing buckskins like they see in the media) to asking me if I knew Pocohantas (that's a big one with Kindergarten and first graders) to Indians want a free ride (6th and middle school referring to indians on welfare). It is really sad that children think the only indians that exist live in tipis, hunt with bows and arrows, wear buckskin clothing, speak in broken english or grunts with hand signals to match. It is 2001 you know. I blame adults, the school system and the government. I am tired of being a personification instead of being able to be myself. I have a regular job, I shop at the Wal-mart and go to the malls, I drive a new mini-van, not a horse!! Parents need to talk to their kids about indian people, they need to explain disney's Pocohantas is a cartoon and COMPLETELY unfactual, and take the time to learn some information about present day indians. We are a proud people, rich in heritage, we took care of the first settlers, when they couldn't fend for themselves. We are not or were not savages. We were provoked and fought back. We did not scalp white settlers, french soldiers scalped us so they didn't have to drag the entire body back to get paid for killing us off. We were given smallpox and entire tribes were killed off by missionaries in the northeastern United States in the 1700's. Half of the Indian nations in the Southeast were forced to walk, some with no shoes and without adequate clothing through the equivilant of 2or 3 states. We had to carry our dead on or backs or leave them to the animals along the Cherokee Trail. The indians of the Southwest, and Western United states were massacered by the thousands for not entering reservations set up by the United States Governments. They were in essence Concentration Camps. Wounded Knee "battle" was caused when the people refused to stop dancing. A sacred ceremony to the Lakota people, trouble to the soldiers watching them. The majority of the people killed were old people, mothers and children. Shot in the back, chased down in freezing weather, left in 2 feet of snow. We have long been misrepresented, misconstrued and forgotten about. Please take the time to know the truth.

As an american my own heritage seems a guilt a different peoples sewn together over time. This could be a beautiful thing.But the most simple and the most essential things seem to be forgotten.Like how to make things and how to be happy with the things we have made.How to grow things and how to be happy with what we have grown. We only know how to buy and how to be sold. I read Chief Crazy Horses article on the double arrogance of our generation.He sounds an alarm that we all need to heed.My question is how does a person in 2002 answer that call.

MY heart holds true to my ancesters and I learn all i can...I lost a marriage because i choose to follow my heartand what I feel is right for me .That is to follow and walk the red path.THIS is what is comfortable to me and feels good in my heart....I may have mixed blood and i am proud of all of them but The Powhatans have my heart and always will .....................FIREEAGLELADY aka MdNghtSheWolf

Im Ottawa Indian,of the Manistee,Michigan Little River Band of Ottawa Indians...My heart feels great pain every time I have to read, or know more of the Indians of North America. Our land was stolen,and still to this day, many tribes still live on the little plots of land named "Reservations"...I sure wish the Powhatan had rid the Americas of the colonies, but what would this land be? Would it be the Nation in mourning? or would it be a Native American land of opportunity? There is only one rightful Judge in the Heavens, and those who stole, raped, and treated the Native American Indians will receive their final judgement from God. I pray that those early people were right with Him.

Answers to some or all of the questions that I have will help me find the answer My great-great-great-great grandfather William Robertson of Chesterfield County, Virginia left a will dated 7 April 1797. His wife was not named in the will. His children named were John, William, Mary, Frances, Ann, Margaret, Frances, Tabatha Elliot, and Lucy Cheatham. Who was his wife, where is her tombstone if in existance, and where was she born? When and where were his children born? When and where was William Robertson born and what, when and where was he married? Who are his ancestors and decendants? Any information that you have and share with me will be greatly appreciated.

I am a student oh native american history who has just completed a segment on the Powhatan confederacy. We recently watched the movie "pocahontas" in order to analyize it and find what a disservice (to put it lightly) it does to the history of the powhatan tribe as well as disney's emphasis on marketability rather than absolute truth... though i am also interested to find that some natives feel that while the historical inaccuracies are appalling, they applaud the way that the settlers were shown as being gold- and blood-hungry ignoramus and the powhatans depicted as a generally kind, noble, strong people whose ties with nature were incredible... thank you for this web site for helping me further my studies on this and many more topics concerning the powhatan tribe. you truly seem to be a remarkable people.

Your web site is informative to a point but I was looking for more historical information regarding the tribe as a whole.

At last, a place where everyone can go to learn the truth about Pocahontas and the Powhatan people. I now have a source to which I can direct those wanting to know the truth. About three years ago, I was visiting and performing (as a dancer) in Bulgaria - their Cultural Center was running the Disney Pocahontas film, 6 times a day. How unfortunate that they are seeing a travesty!

I am currently in college at Eastfield College in Mesquite, Tx and in my history class i beleve my instructor to be very knowlegeable. He said the same thing that Chief Roy Crazy Horse said about Powhattan and Pocahontas. I just wanted you to know that people are teaching the truth about your people not the european version of it. he tells us that also but then tells what he found out really happened

I found this the most incredible story. Everything I learned was a lie. This story was the truth. The reason I'm writing is I have a painting. It's of her over his body with Men standing around. Title of the painting is "Red Man and Pochontas Lodge" Unsigned so I don't know who the artist is. Any information on this painting or why a lie was painted would be appreciated. Prayers to the families in New York. Tobi

About 6 (six) generations down from Pocahontas is William Robertson (1750-1829) and wife Elizabeth Bolling (1760- ?) of Chesterfield County, Virginia. From my Family my great=great grandfather Thomas Carter Moore I and wife Mary Forrest. Mary Forrest's father was John Forrest and wife Frances Robertson, Frances Forrest's father was William Forrest (Will in April 4th or 7th, 1797) of Chesterfield County, Virginia. His will did not name his wife, but did name his children. I am trying to find a connection from William Robertson (1750-1829) and William Robertson (Will in April, 1797). If I can find that connection, then I will have established that I am a decendant of Pocahontas. I'm asking for everyone's help in this project. I will appreciate any help you can send my way. Thanks. Charlie L. Moore May I add this note: both William Robertsons were from Chesterfield County, Virginia.

I'm writing this entry because I'm in a class called Women's History. Our first topic was learning about Native Americans and different tribes. Our first assignment was a lab activity researching information on Matoaka also known as Pocahontas. I thought I knew a lot about her because of the Disney movie. What I learned astonished me. I'm glad that I did this research otherwise I would have had that one impression. Thanks for informing me and telling me the truth. Thanks and have a successful year.

I have to say that I've always been fascinated with the Native Americans . Although I am not one myself, I still feel some deep connection to the culture. I admire the simplicity and what Native Americans stand for. I am very disturbed by the protrayal of the Disney movie and am very disgusted in the treatment of Native Americans by the Euro-American society. I recently read in a local newspaper that there had been a possible Native American body found in the Little Egg Harbor area (the residental community of Atlantis Country Club). My family has a house only a few houses away from where the telephone company was working when they found the remains. At the time of this story, the origin of the body was undeterminded and I wanted to know if anyone could update me. Any other information about that area is also desired. I wish all well and hope to have fun at the Festival.

Todays immigrants "are" original Settlers, and as such they are no more interested in the welfare of North American Indians then the settlers from Euorpe were in 1492. The only thing that is different is that today's settlers are from Latin America and Asia. Wabeno

TODAY'S IMMIGRANTS "ARE" ORIGINAL SETTLERS! And as such are no more interested in our welfare then the settlers of 1492 forward. Being from South America and Asia does not make them any less of a threat to our people or our way of life then it did 500 years ago. WHEN ARE THE SETTLERS GOING TO STOP COMING? My question is: Can the tribes sue former President Clinton over his mass immigration policy and If so can it be initiated in time for the arrival of Mexican President Vincent Fox's visit with George Bush? We really are the only ethnic group in America that can address the issue of immigration without the cries of racism and hate speech from the left winger's who continue to pillage the remainder of our land.

Just wanted to add my appreciation for the hand of friendship extended by a battered, neglected people. Powhatan Nation shows an example of human behavior the rest of us should follow. The great wonder of the Internet is that it can be used to inform, educate, and enjoin people across vast distances, irrespective of race or creed. The comments here are proof that, in the end, we are all One People.

I am doing research on a satellite settlement of Jamestown that was located further up the James called Henricus. I visited your site because Pocahontas was a resident of Henricus for a period of time. I too, agree that Disney's version of the story is insulting. While I am not Native American, I do believe that truthfullness is the best way to portray history. Disney dropped the ball on this one. It is OK to reinterpret fairy tales, but history needs to be portrayed accurately. (They were even inaccurate concerning the landscape.) It was because of this insult that I vowed not to see that film/video. As a matter of fact, I have not seen a Disney animation since.

I was born and raised in White Stone, VA only minutes from the Rappahannock River. I just recently visited the Rankokus Indian Reservation for a family reunion (Byrd, Fortune, Acrey, Washington) and I really enjoyed it. I decided the check out this web site and I really like it. While at the family reunion I found out that my descendents are Powhatans from the Rappahannock Tribe. I am very interested in learning my heritage and culture. I am starting to do my Washington homework for my new cuz I just met K. Hunter. I don't quite know where to start. I do know my grandparents are Richard Washington and Queen Ella Samuels of Essex County in Virginia. It's been real and I will be visiting again soon. Hope to see you at the festival in October.

In my research of one of my ancestors, a man called Chief Donahoo, I find that some say he was Powhattan, some say he was Cherokee. The Cherokee say he was definitely Native, but not Cherokee. He was from Virginia, and the claims do not say which tribe. What say the Powhattan? Are the descendants of Chief Donahoo on your rolls?

You makes you wonder just how much truth is really out there in our history and scary to know what our children are reading in history books today.

great website,in regards to the disney movies,one thing good came out of it all,what a great learning experience for all those people who claims to be blood relatives,or the ones who just enjoy history,i met SHIRLEY LITTLE DOVE IN Martinsville,Va.My native state,the Pocahantas descendant was so informative about the disney make believe stories,she had a wonderful set-up in how the natives used to live,but what I loved most about her,was the history that only she grew up with,the knowledge,the fact that she turned down disney in the making of pocahontas,because they would not see her version of the real story, God Bless this wonderful,loving person.JUST WANTED TO SHARE THIS AWSOME EXPERIENCE at a powwow in Martinsville,Va.

All of my life I have thought the story of Pocohantis was true. But I do remember right before Disney put out their movie reading a Biography on Matoaka. When I saw the movie I was quite discusted that it had been made into such a joke. They had made Matoaka 20, and she fell in love with John Smith! I don't know where they got that. Anyway, I would like to say I'm sorry for the dishonor that this movie has brought upon your people. I hope that in the future Disney will attempt to be more historically correct.

Hello. I've written before in this guestbook but I haven't been back in a while. I did a lot of time trying to find myself and I'm still pretty much lost. I think that is impossible for me to prove who I am. My mother is a Johnson(maiden name) and a Rich through marriage. My grandmother is a Miles of the Pamunkey tribe and her son still lives in Virginia, near the reservation. He is, to my knowledge, a full-blooded American Indian. Maybe he is all Pamunkey. Anyway, I've written the reservation and there was no response. I am tired but I'll try again. I know who I am. I wish that I could see a picture of my grandmother, who died way before I was born. I am sixteen and half-black and I don't have any proof of who I am but I know what I am. I wish the Pamunkey tribe had a website like this. I am one in a million of people who are searching for their families, but it seems that if you are not born on the reservation or near it, there is no real way to find out anything. Oh, and Dodie Arnold of Pamunkey says hello. I wrote to her a while. She used to live on the reservation. Thankyou

I was saddened (That it has been so distorted!) but glad to know the real story of Pocahontas. It is part of my family lore that I am desended of Pocahontas. If it is true that Chief Justice John Marshall was a descendant of Pocahontas' or rather Matoaka, then I am of her blood line as I can prove direct lineage to John Marshall. But even if not it is past time to honor the original peoples of this land and learn their truths and their medicine and their wisdom. I look forward to the festival and continuing to learn more about Powhatan peoples. Thank you! Sally Jo

I have sent in comments to this guest book sometime ago so I'll make my points brief. Walt Disney, as well as other capitalists, have NEVER regarded Native peoples nor attempted to represent Natives in the best lights. Whether you are talking animations, movies, etc. It has been standard practice for movie producers such as Disney Corp. to stereotype Natives in this manner. I am not the least bit surprised--any corporation who would be asked to not misrepresent a group and still does is, in my opinion, the worst, most dispicable capitalists.

Funny how we dont know our neighbors now days, Ive lived in NJ for 11 yrs about 1 hr away from you and never knew it. I have always been drawn to native american topics (maybe because my grandmother always told us we were paet indian but never told us what or how. She grew up around Cheif Moses and Chief Joseph of the Salish Tribe in Wenatchee and Cashmere Wa. My wife met Mark Gould, the tribal chairperson from the Lenepe tribe here and has been imersed with the Native way for about a year now and I have been ashamed to say I never knew there were any native americans in NJ when in fact I have a tribe living 8 mi away and another 1 hr away. Anyway, we will be at the spriing festival.

I was looking for some information on 'pocahontas' for a play my drama group at school is writing. This really gives me a new view on the story. I always thought that she had fallen in love with John Rolfe-that's what they teach us even now at school in England. I feel like crying at her sad story, and we will, through our play, teach those who were brought up with Disney how different everthing really was. I am planning to shred my copy of the video as soon as possible. Thank you for showing me the truth.

The most important thing is Lineage. In and through lineage we find life and love. All people are ultimately from one lineage. Our ancestors divided themselves because of wrong-doing. Eventually we will all be one lineage again, even if we live in different families, clans, tribes, and nations. I hope that all tribes and nations will set aside their "borders", eliminate all barriers, so that any person will be considered a "brother", so that anyone can be considered "Powhatan" even if not of strict Powhatan lineage.

I have been to the festivals several times and decided to help my children and grandchildren understand their heritage. We are a special combination of Cherokee, Iroguis (my grandmother's mother was Mohawk she believes), Blackfeet and a touch of black. This makes for an interesting combination of emotions and unknown memories. My father's parents often taught us Indian ways growing up. We thought everyone was raised that way. The joke was on us when my grandfather told us his father was Cherokee, Atha Thompson, I believe was the name he gave me before he passed..Then I discovered the festivals at Rankokus and visited the Cherokee reservation in North Carolina, I was home. Thand you so much, my daughter and I found out we were not so different, even though my husband was Cherokee, he knew nothing about his heritage. We have even turned my grandchildrens school on to you (Lawnside Middle School). They love the pictures and articles from some of the festivals. If anyone can help me find info on my grandfather, who I believe was registered with you, (George F. Brown, Sr., of Lawnside, NJ), please e-mail me at cherokee_D@juno.com. Thankyou and God Bless You.

I have lived in New Jersey all my life (74) years and have never heard of the Powhatan Indian Tribe. As I am moving to Burlington shortly, I researched the county and found out your tribe existed. I am immensely delighted to know and read about you. I wonder if your group could step up your public relations to let the people of New Jersey that you exist. They would be delighted, as I am, to know of your existence.

I found some interesting information on Pocahontas last night on the web site of Oglala Lakota College. On that site are some student research papers, and one was on Pocahontas. The student goes into detail about BOTH Pocahontas films by Disney.

great site, glad to see so much time was put into such a great site. well, i seem to be halfway through my life expectancy, yet you nver know what the future holds. Saw a display in a museum depicting our tribe. Was an interesting depiction, very honored to see a family of lenape indians just waking up and starting their day off. Like many indians from the coastal areas, I would like to someday visit our many great reservations and speak with the chief and shaman and tell them how much i love them, or even visit them at their house , apartment, tee-pee or where-ever they are living now. Maybe whoever runs this site could send a special high or something. Well i should probably go now. See you at peyote!!!!!

This is a great website. It appears a bunch have been here that do not talke family history seriously, but I for one appreciate those who do. I have always heard that my Sawyer family extended from a lost tribe adn found it listed just today in the book "The Melungeons", where it showed this tribe and I came her looking for information. While I have not been searching this site long, I do find it quiet interesting. If some other Sawyer family menber should come by e-mail me and lets see if we can find our family roots. Thanks, and Happy Hunting! Norma

It is in our family tree book,I am very pleased to know this, I just wish someone would tell the real truth about the situation between her and John Smith. I have heard so many different stories. I would like to go to a reservation sometime soon and see how my ancestors live and how they manage day to day now. I really liked the books I have read about my aunt and wish that I could know more about her and meet some of my relatives.

My drama class is presenting a play called "Pocahontas" by Vera Morris. As historically inaccurate as it is, I can look past its flaws since the play is geared toward elementary school kids. However, here in Robertsdale, Alabama, people have their facts confused. My drama teacher, who now teaches in the high school she once attended, has decided we should use teepees (because they're easier)for the set rather than longhouses, even though I've explained a million times exactly why we shouldn't. This irritates me. Secondly, she pronounces the name "POW HATAN." Believe me, I've tried to teach her the proper pronunciation, but she ignores me. It took me forever just to get her to say "Algonquin" instead of "Algonkin." ::sighs:: ...can't save 'em all. I'm annoyed, but I can chalk all of the above to sheer ignorance. I lived in Yorktown, VA for 8 years; she's never been out of Alabama. But the one thing that I absolutely cannot get over is that she takes Disney's Pocahontas for fact. I grit my teeth every time the class says something stupid. Honestly, I don't know how you people put up with us.

I must admit that I was stunned and stricken by Chief Crazy Horse' description of only some of the Spanish explorers' comments and decimation of the Indian population. All this pales in light of the subsequent holocaust created by our own pioneers of the west and the US Government in the nineteenth century. I never knew how ignorant I am of Indian history. It will be a goal of mine to become more knowledgeable of Indian history. Chief - the reason people (like me) haven't done anything is that they don't know. Santayana - philosopher - once said something like ' what the world forgets it is doomed to repeat.." What is does not know is of no concern. Ignorance - which is not knowing - is an epidemic here in these United States because most of us are ignorant of Indian history.

I tried to join the navy and they cant even find my birth records. The family that raised me had mistreated me,and I am looking for a family relation with my people,although I am af raid they too may not want me,because I am mixed.What do I do?

i have many comments on raceism, i do feel bad for what happened to African Americans in the new ages of america and still to day it's happening to them. But we have done worse things to other people, for example we came to america and pushed all the N ative Americans into what a area that would make only about 1 state worth of space. We took there women,food and goods. we even killed so many off with the pox and other dizeses. i may be young but i know racism,when im with other races i feel fine, whi te people have bad names from thier antsisters but not all white poeple are bad most white people acctually love every raceism. I'm white and in my family i've got a African american aunt, Hispanic grand pa and uncles, and a lot of my family that has Nati ve american blood in them. any way if any one would like to disscuss this with me email me at imgirlpower@hotmail.com

I'm a 4th grade teacher in Virginia and was searching the web for resources on the Powhatans as we are studying the Algonquans in the Tidewater region. The Pocahontas Myth is particularly on target and needed in the classroom -- I'll be reading that to my students next week.

Back in October 1996 I came back for the Lenapehoking Festival at Sandy Hook. There I met and spoke with many people and showed pictures of my family. Oddly enough one Indian in hearing my story said we were the missing link and wanted me to meet some others. Sad, but this never happened. I have many Newspaper clippings, Deeds to land taken from family members etc.What I want to know now is where do I go from here. Please help me in any way you can so that I and my family members will know for sure our history. Thank You, Marjorie Roker (maiden name Russell)

A couple of days ago my father stumbled across some old family papers which told of our ancesters. After looking at them for a long time he relized that we are related to the Powhatan tribe. I, myself, do not have much Native blood in me, I think it's only like 15% or 20%, I'm not sure. Anyway, I've been looking on the websites to find out as much as I can about my people, but most of it is on the story of Pocahontas. It's an amazing story, but i would like to find out more about everything, not just one person. So if you could possibly help me out I would really appreciate it, it would even be nice to hear from someone on the reservation. Thanx for your time. I hope i hear from some

thank you very much for your side of the story. I avoid Disney movies for the very reason that they so distort the truth. isn't the real story far more interesting, anyway? Isn't it amazing that we the European American people so love our myths, dis torted as they are, and shun any attempt to discover or even listen to the truth. Perhaps one day even Disney will open their hearts and minds.

I grew up on the Pamunkey Indian Reservation. I had a beautiful childhood there....I left home in 1985 to walk my own path chosen, and in 1996 I had a calling to come back. I now am the Curator of the Pamunkey Indian Museum and am very proud to be back home...teaching the Truth of our People. I find this website very informative and a good amount of thought and spirit were put into it. I am not saying that you are not Powhatan people...but it amazes me , with all of the issues going on that are threatening our River and land...we have not heard from you at all..everyday I find a new group that claims ancestory within the Powhatan Nation . It is unfortunate that many of our own have lost their Culture and Traditions...remember what they went through when THEY were younger...not being allowed to be who they truely were...My Tribe has very few INDIANS left living on the Pamunkey Reservation and my calling home was to keep our Culture and Traditions alive...I am fighting for many things there...especially the rights of the Women.....my Mother is one of the only 2 full-blood Women living there and to the day I die...I will keep alive what she , and my Elders that passed on, have taught me. I regret that I did not come home sooner to sit and talk with these people..my family. If you truely want to educate the people...there is more to our History than POCAHONTAS...why don't you get word out of currant issues...we need all of the support we can get... In the spirit...Littlewing

I am a decendant of Matoaka. Being a young person, yeah I liked the Disney cartoon; but that's all that was was a cartoon. The truth was really twisted in the story and for that I get a little mad. Also I am part Navajo... so being Native American, I get a little uneasy about the fact that a Disney movie can call me a "Redskin". I do not have 'redskin'. Anyway, that's all I have to say.

Its good to see your tribe is still alive.My family remembers your tribe very well,one of your confederate tribes known as the kiskeyack who lived on the southeastern end of the York river,in Virginia,saved our lives in the 1648 massacre,witch was led by chife powhatan son,our family was very angry when a year later the British military massacred the frendly Kiskeyack tribe insted of the Powhatan tribe. WE built boats for the colony and traded small boats to the kiskeyack indians for food and the boats made a good fish trade for the tribe.

I've been interested in the story of Pocahontas for some time, but I never really knew the true story. All I knew, was that she wouldn't have been a young woman when Smith was met her father, and she was a daughter of chief Powhatan. I really enjoyed t he information you had about her. The true story is perhaps even better than the fake one, even if it is tragic. I have native blood flowing in my vains myself, very little, but some. I felt very angry at reading how Disney rejected your offers to help with the cutural and historical accuracy of the movie. No one would expect Disney to have an very accurate movie, but it could have stuck to some of the facts! Sometimes I'm ashamed thinking about how the whites treated the natives! I'm very glad that my friends and I discovered your website. It was a link on a website that we had gone on (we're studying natives in social studies, and we had to find information on native history on the internet). I truly enjoyed your website, and so did my friend Meredith. We both printed off information from your website, we're going to put it into our own words, and show it to our classmates.

I am a Pamunkey Indian, through my grandparents, some of which still live in Virginia, near the reservation. I am only fifteen, but I decided that this is a good time to find out who I am. I look at people who are in their later years who know nothing of who they are or what it is to be Indian, and I worry that I will become that way someday. I wrote my tribe, but received no reply, but I will try again. I don't want anything from them, just to know about being Pamunkey. I don't know if we'll(my family ) be recognized as Native American, but it doesn't matter because I know who I am. I can only try when there is hope, but I don't think that I can keep up this search for my people and my relatives. But I am proud, no matter what, to be Indian.

this site is rather informative. i thoroughly enjoyed looking through this information. i was definetly pleased to learn the truth about pocahontas. that was very important. disney has for decades taken history and perverted it so it is more visall y stimulating for it's child audience. what they fail to take into consideration is that the historical topics that they use as entertainment is not something a child should really have knowledge about. now an entire generation will have the horribly mi sguided version of a story about a member of your people. well, hopefully more public schools will have specialty classes like mine in the future. that way, your site will get more recognition, and the truth will finally come out. thanks again.

Where do you people get off thinking that you are an Indian tribe? By your own history, you came into being in the late 1800s as a group of individuals "claiming" to be Indian. You have no evidence of actual lineage to any previously recognized India n tribes. You "went public" in the sixties when it was popular to be Indian as a result of the civil rights movement and movies such as Billie Jack. you used to claim to be the only original descendants of the Powhatan Confederacy. At least you changed that tune. Anyone who really wants to learn of the Powhatan Confederacy needs to go down to Virginia. There are still two reservations established in 1647 (not 1980) for the Mattaponi Tribe and the Pamunkey Tribe. These are the true descendants of Pow hatan and Pocahontas, who were Pamunkey Indians. You fooled the state of New Jersey and are no doubt fooling lots of other people. Consider changing your tribal name to WANNABE. IT fits better.

For all who read this: The sad truth is that as it stands now, if Powhatan and Pocahontas were alive today, they WOULD NOT be considered as American Indian in the eyes the Federal Government. The injustice lives on. Thus, I urge all Natives and Native supporters to please write your Congressman or Congresswomen in support the Bill before Congress which would grant Federal Tribal recognition to the Tribes of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Thank you for clearing up the Pocahontas myth as well as the other wonderful information I found on your site. I am trying to help my niece and nep hew understand that there are many different cultures and people other than white Anglo-Saxon. In the hopes that they will always remember that there is more, different, and better things in the world then we have yet seen. My Thanks.

I was reading about American Reservations in English class, when the teacher said that there will be extra credit for anyone who found information on American Reservations. So I decided to look up some stuff when I found This site. I must say that I w as moved when I read the real story about Pocahontas. I'm really interested in learning about the Native American Tribes, So I must thank you for having this information. You have such a big help. Thanks again.

There is a bill before congress to decide whether or not to grant federal recognition to 8 Native American nations in Virginia. Some Virginia law makers are agianst the bill and are using the possiblity of legalized gambling to get the bill rejected. The leaders of the eight nations have pledged that they would NOT introduce gambling if granted federal recognition; however, some virginia law makers are still against the proposal. I ask all friends of the Powhaten Renape Nation to write to their cong ressmen and request them to vote FOR federal recognition of the Vriginia tribes. They are the Chickahominy, Chickahominy Indian-Eastern Division, Mattaponi, upper Mattaponi, manacan, nansemond, Pamunkey and Rappahannock nations.

At one of the Powhatan Festivals a while back (last year or the year before?), there was a petition (which I signed) to get the Congressional Medal of Honor for the Navaho Code Talkers. I was wondering if there has been any more activity or movement o n this...? Actually, I've done a bit of research, and it seems that the CMOH is only available to individuals who "distinguished himself or herself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life or her life above and beyond the call o f duty..." This need to risk life might be what's preventing the Code Talkers from receiving the Medal. However, they WOULD be eligible for the "Silver Star", which is offered for meritorious service without the requirement of exposure to life-risking c ircumstances (beyond those normally associated with military service). If there has been any activity in this area, I'd appreciate hearing about it; thank you!

Very nice web page, a good way for others to learn the truth about our people,and for own people to learn about themselves. I am Sac'n'Fox/Meskwaki from Iowa. Every chance i get to learn more about who we are from our elders is a great privledge and ab out other nations as well. I greatly appreciated your article on "Pocahontas"and think that Disney should have done a better job on being more historical correct. All these years of our people being misunderstood and the sterotypes, they(Disney) should ha ve been brave enough to do the movie more accurately. I find it detrimental not only to young chilren learning about Native americans, but to my own children whom watch the Disney movies and read school books. I teach my children the truth about who they are, not relying on others to teach them. I guess the only way to give out correct and true information is to do it ourselves, like through web pages like these and through education and our Pow Wow's. Thank you again for the information, i used it to tel l my daughter the truth about what really happened with "Pocahontas".and her people. Rachel

Have worked for ten years on Eastern Indian History, working from white text books. Have compiled much in chronological order based mainly on Va., W.Va., and Md. Have been able to intercede some Choptank oral history and am interested in getting othe rs. Have been in touch with Shawnee descendants in Md.. This will eventually be distributed to those tribes, and Indian tribes only, in the complete form with hopes of a good, final truth being known, along with some legal background for current claims. I know this is not a traditional, respectful way of request for what you have in Oral Knowledge, but you have my E-Mail address. If interested I will follow through.

It is good to be able to message this. I have envied the Native Amercan Nations here in the Eastern regions for in times past being influenced more by living within and with the earth in a partnership rather than in commercialization of it and only ap rreciating its beauty as it is squandered. White Europeans were a scourge to the land and I am ashamed of the attitudes brought from a wrecked continent they left behind to come here. I am surprized they as a whole didn't learn anything from the old way in Europe. I can only think the whole culture was sick. And, I am a white euro. I have imagined for years of what this country must have been like. I know life was no bowl of cherries for the "Indians". You had your problems as human beings. It is s ad that the country has changed so much since the stewardship in the days of you people. I'm almost old now. 51 years old and have gone from being filled with myths about "Indians" to the reality of what happened. I know things have not changed much for the better for 6 thounsand years or so with the everpresent downward spiral of civilization that eventually crashed down on the American Natives. Rest assured. Who was the man among YOU who prohpesized there would be blood of the white races lapping at the bridles of the horses? That is also in Isaiah in the Bible. Thought a little misrepresient of the facts this is a prophesy concerning the whol e world so it will be true in this country. Those ruining the earth will themselves be brought to ruin. And those who have died will return and will indeed celebrate.

Thank you for making me a wiser man. But I regret I haven't been taught that in school when I was younger. I think it's because of this lack in our education that most of us (too much) are bound to turn racist, those people don't even know where they come from. They forgot that every single thing on earth was born thanks to "mother nature ". I hope I won't be misunderstood and I wish the Powhattan Renape Nation will forever be as wise as it has always been.

Dear people, I found your site just to read about pochahontas. I think that your story is true about here, but don't look at it as negative, because of the movie pochahontas people got more interested about the indians. Many old stories are filmed slightly wrong not only a story like Pochahontas. I think she's a mystery, i think many inadian tribes are very interesting, i'am especially interested in their handcraftings. It's so difficult to know about indians because there are so many diffrent kinds of tribes. Marjon Netherlands

I am trying to piece together my Mothers family history. She was from Louisa County Va, the daughter of John Waddy whom she told me had Native American blood. Her name, CUETTA is very unusual and I have yet to come across it in 60 yrs. It is possible that it was made up at the moment, but the area of country and the time 1920, makes it unlikely. I'm probably grasping at straws, but I was wondering if it might be a corruption of Cutta from Cuttatawomen, a tribe of the Powhatan Confederacy. If anyone reading this can shed any light or has any positive feed back please feel free to contact me by e- mail. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I found your site thru 'expertcity' , and enjoyed it emmencely. I for one never once thought the movie "Pocahontus" was true..It as are most of Disney films 'fairy tales', and 'money' is the motive for most movie making. I dont take any movie seriously .But I do agree that false information is detrimental for our young ones to see and hear. Something difinately needs to be done about it. Any way, I need help like most people who are doing Family history research; I, like so many was told that I descended from the samee tribe as Pocahontus-Not necessarily a descendant of hers. We have all come to a roadblock on our g.grt grand mother Polly Ann or Pollyanna Brown. She was a full blooded Amer. Indian, but we are not sure of what tribe. Some say Cherokee, some say Pocahintus tribe; She was born in 1846 or 1849. She lived to be 105 years old; She married Ed Chadwick around 1860-61; They married in Georgia (we think, as their children -5 of them) were born there.Her name could have been Browning..you know ho w census takers were then.From Georgia they (Ed & Polly Chadwick) moved to Gatesville Texas, near Waco, and lived there all her life. She died in Gatesville between 1941-1954.When she was 100 years old one of the almanac companies or 'Black Draught' Co.(e ither Farmers Almanac or more likely "Ladies Birthday Almanac-which was more popular in the south, contacted her and took a picture of her for an ad for "Black Draught"(tea), that appeared on one of the almanac's mentioned.My Mama remembers seeing the ad when she was a young girl. Does anyone out there know anything about my Polly or about the almanac. OR can help me find avenues in which to trace her. I know she was born on a reservation,(could be Virgina or Georgia) I just dont know which one. Those of you who have books and family history, would you research this for me please? I would love you to pieces if you can find our Polly..Thanks..Wynell which is an indian name-dont know what it means though).

In reference to those who believe they may be of Powhatan descent; There are only SEVEN family names that can be directly traced to Powhatan and "Pocahontas". If you are not a descendant from one of those families.....sorry to say, but you have no cla im. Contact Old Dominion University in VA. One of the foremost experts on the Powhatan people is a professor there. She may be able to help you trace your family history! Good Luck!!

Have family tree traced from present till 1602 want more info send email to metalpoet@yahoo. com I am very proud of my Native American history and I know that has not always been cool.My grand pa did not want my dad to marry my mom because she had indian in her... but life goes on. Now on the other hand if it had not been for Quanah Parker's fami ly The Cox's to be exact, I would not be typing right now. I also Know that Native Americans fought each other people died .... what if Americans had gone to Europe with weapons and ideals of their own . It seems history is history who writes it is the one who makes it.No one is perfect... stop blaming each other the whole world is full of death, war and who wants to rule who and concure. We should learn from it not relive it, am I to hate myself????? Now I know things were done on both sides one defend ing, the other spreading its will on the other. the whole world is full of these stories not to bury it but LEARN not to DISTROY but to build.... but remember this,"a nation divided will fall ...." the question is who will take its place and will it build or distroy... My history is white Eruopean and Native American I am proud of both and disappointed in both but I hope to Learn and do better. I belive that God had the right idea and as it says in the bible the most important thing is to love one another as we love our selves....God belss those that have gone before me to make this nation great and free... and sorry about those idiots who made those damn bad mistakes .

Hey! I am related to Nicketti through the Venable blood line. The Venables once owned Stone Mountain in Georgia. My momma also thinks that our family is somehow linked to the McIntosh Reserve near Whitesburg. She thinks of how her ancestors may have travele d the land that she now lives on near McIntosh. I would love any information on Nicketti, the Venable relation, or ancestors that may have originated from the McIntosh Reserve. I have always been told of my Indian blood. It just seems more fascinating now that I do have a family tree with recordings all the back to Murmuring Ripple, 1415.

Thank so very much for this web site and guest book. I notice a changed in the site from my last logon. My thanks are because from my last guestbook entry, I have been able to be in touch with some new cousins and family members that have my ancestor Princess Nicketti, granddaughter of Chief Wahunasonacock Powhatan. I would like to get in touch with anyone who speaks the Powhatan language, as I would like to learn what has been lost in our family. Language is very important. Thank you.

Hello! My dad was born in Charles City, Virginia. My grandmother's name was Mariah Frances Miles. She was married to Albert Johnson. My family is from the Pamunkey tribe. I need to know about the Miles and Johnson families because I'm trying to fi nd out about my ancestry. I remember as a child that my grandmother visited the reservation in Virginia, and I don't know if she had any relatives there. I need to know if anyone can give me any information. I can remember my grandmother sitting on her braids, and had all the traits of a beautiful Indian woman. I love and miss my grandmother dearly now that she is deceased.

Great site! It's amazing how many cousins that I have. Like most I am unhappy with the Disney version of history. I am unique I guess. While I certainly don't agree with the implication that the film is historically accurate and yet as an actor, direct or, playwright I understand their side. If they could acknowledge that their version is using alot of dramatic license I believe many might be less angery. I'm researching my greattttt grandmother and would love to hear from the orinators of this site. I would love a chance to read the script of their play. Scott

If you descend from Pocahontas, or Powhatan we will accept your application for enrollment in our historic Indian tribe. We are Powhatan/Cherokee, and started coming to MO in 1652 (today US 60 in the Ozarks is known as the Virginia Warrior's Trail), received a Spanish Land Grant in 1793, and are already recognized as a sovereign nation by one agency of the U.S. Government, and in the process of putting together our application for federal "services from the Department of the Interior", a process that takes several years. Powhatan and Pocahontas place names are common in AR, MO, OH and IA, and the town surrounding them reflect the surnames of Pocahontas descendants. We have a 40,000 page genealogical library. The word "Hillbilly" is a code word for our Powhatan/Cherokee people, according to a recent PBS Special, "Earth Wind and Fire" Our "base roll" is a certain book of over 10,000 descendants of Pocahontas, published by the family in the 1880's. Principal Chief Martin "Walking Bear" Wilson, is a descendant of Powhatan, Pocahontas, Dragging Canoe, and the 13th hereditary "Werowance" since Powhatan, or Paramount Principal (Hereditary) Chief of the Amonsoquath Tribe of Cherokee. Anciently, the word Werowance was used instead of "Chief." Visit our website soon! Please feel free to download our Ongiving.com banner from the top of our webpage, and help us raise the needed funds for putting together our petition for eligibility for services from the Secretary of the Interior.

Love the articles on your site, very informative & educational. Thrilled to see a portrait of Powhatan. I have looked him up in encyclopedias & other search engines on line & it was never hinted that there was a portrait. I am a descendant of Pocaho ntas & John Rolfe & was very excited to see the portrait of Powhatan. Other than the portrait of Pocahontas dressed in English style clothing I have only seen one other that appears to be when she was being baptized a Christian. It was very blurry. Are there any other portraits of either of them that you know of?

Very interesting site. I want to comment about the racial climate that still exists in our society, and particularly the racist nicknames that are still prevalent, such as those still being used by Parsippany High School, Somerville Middle School, etc . here in New Jersey. I find the continued use of these names (such as Redmen, Warriors, etc.) indefensible. I do not believe that this issue is superficial; names carry significance and stereotype individuals. Major league sports teams with racist nic knames (e.g. Atlanta Braves) have met with protests, but what about local school teams here in New Jersey? Anyone working to enlighten local school boards?

In our local cemetary there are 2 grave stones. One Allen L. Powhatan son of H.W & A.M. Powhatan Born July 11, 1886 died September 1, 1886 The other grave stone is H.W. Powhatan Co. B. 53rd Ind. Inf. I thought that maybe someone would be int erested in knowing this. There is nothing that the mother and wife is buried there. My granddaughter has been taking care of and putting flowers on the baby's grave since we have been in Mt. View. We move here in 1990 or 91. There is no date when the father of the infant died. The infants grave has blocks of stone about 3 or 4 inches thick and about 3 foot long and about 2 foot wide and is about 2 foot high. It is in the old part of the cemetary and is right next to 3rd street. It can be plainly seen from the street. Please will someone let me know if these people are ancesters of theirs?

Nice Site! But what happened to my check and papers? I didn't know about my ancestors in Virginia until a Cousin in Virginia sent me the data on the Lewis and Davis and Hughes Branch. You can see my Pettengill-Ingersoll line on another site, or on a f ilm at the Family History Center. On my father's side Amanda Cook is my 2GGM a Mohaw in the Haudenosaunee. Now on my Mother's side, Opechancanough, Chief of Pamunkey is my 9GGF and Nicketti Powhatan Lewis is my 8GGM, which makes me and my 5 brothers 1/32 Native American. I have a major in History and English at LSU, 1950, and in regard to the history of our People, it is presented in a very distorted fashion, especially by leaving out the truth. I was shocked to read the early orders of the Virginia Company in regard to the Native Peoples. My daughter gave me a new CD by Joanne Shenandoah, Peacemaker's Journey. Everyone should listen to it. Beautiful story and Beautiful Music. I would appreciate hearing from any member of the Minor, Lewis, Guthrie, Davis, or Woodson Family. I am retired many years, and have made family history my new occupation. It is fun to find out the truth, especially when some cousins are so obstinate in historical lies. Remember the first slaves in the Americas were the Indians, then the Scots. Peshewa or Tako-skowa The Wild Cat. We now live in the foothills of the Sierra, and we hope to have a new casino and hotel near here soon..

good afternoon, or buenois tardis My name is natasha and i am writing to you from the sunny islands of bermuda. I am a black woman. It wasn't until recently I was told of the indian, portuguese and white heritage I have. On my grandmothers (mother's) side I have English and Peruvian In dian (which I now know peruvians are decendants of the Inca indians). On my grandmother(father's) side her mother is portuguese. I love the culture and the strength of the Indian people. From young I have always seen and been fascinated with the Indian movies and legends. The people (like black people were treated unjust and unfair) I love the humbleness they posses, wisdom and strength. In reading some of the other Indian websites a lot of the women were described as courageous and athletic. My hu sband sometimes teases me and tells me I am a tomboy(boyish) because I box or kickbox or love soccer and the outdoors (nature in every way). I have often wondered where this drive in me to love challenging sports and the outdoors comes from. (Maybe my a ncestory holds the answer). Continue striving to achieve more for your people. You have much to be proud of. Love Natasha

Hi, I am also a descendent of Pocahontas. I didn't know that there were so many out there!! I need some help- my great grandmother's name was Princess Red Wing, she lived in Virgina. That's about all I know. If anyone can help me, i'd really appreciate it, but I realize that there's not really a lot of information to work with. Thank you! (I was also furious about the movie!)

When I first read the truth I wondered if I wanted to claim decendency through the Rolfe line. Then I realized I could not change history, only the present and the future. I recently helped my young grandson write a book report about Pocahontas and give a genealogy report with it. We tried to be as honest and factual as we could. My line is Rolfe, Bolling, Osborne. Tackett. Anyone interested in this line please contact me.

Thank you so much for your web site. Did so enjoy it and Looked through everything. We are decendants through John Rolf and Matoaka. We also have other links to them through other ancesters. It is a feeling inside that we have that makes us proud to b e Cherokee and Powhatan. Thank you for getting the story straight about Matoaka. I have had lots of trouble teaching the kids that Matoaka was a good Indian and not just a young girl looking for love like the schools teach. My mother has painted a picture of Matoaka that came from a statue of her dressed in her deer skins and is standing on a pedastal with her arms reaching out slightly as if a jesture in peace. Are there any other pictures of her besides what is on the internet? Would love to put them in the photo album. Thanks again for your web.

For those of you who are, or think you might be, descended from Pocahontas - there's an excellent book that may help you figure out exactly what your line of descent is. (For my line it goes all the way down to my mother.) The author is Stuart E. Brown , the title is "Pocahontas' Descendants", and it was published in 1994. I know that it's available at the Library of Congress and at the DAR Library, and I imagine that other libraries with good genealogy collections would have it too.

Great Website! I am really happy to see a rebuttal to Disney's "version" of the Pocahontas story. I found the movie very offensive and I am especially disturbed by Disney's habit of altering history/fact/literature to suit their commercial needs! Fu rther, I think it is a crime that Disney has influenced an entire generation of children by re-affirming the "good Indian/bad Indian" theme. I can't believe that they didn't know what they were doing. In my opinion, there is absolutely no excuse for thei r distortion of the historical fact. (Although, I am not surprized, look how they changed the ending of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"! Now, an entire generation will grow up thinking that Victor Hugo's novel ended with the Hunchback alive!) Finally, I believe it arrogance on the part of Disney for rejecting offers of assistance by the Powhatan Nation in researching the film. They should be ashamed! Anyway, sorry to spout off like that! I'm very happy to have found your website and plan on visiting the reserve as soon as possible. I'd like to learn as much as I can about the Powhatan Nation. Thank you for you hospitality!

Strong and valuable statements on racism. Being mainly descended from Welsh Quakers. I am also a Quaker myself. Raceism. is imbedded deep within the English language. Many Europeans fled racial or religious oppression, though they brought some with them. Erasing these statements from our language should be a high priorty. It's a "Big Blue Marble". There needs to be room for us all we are all brothers and sisters if thi s were not true we would be unable to procreate among our various devisions. Look into every man or womans eyes you meet and know that they are your brothers and sisters. Individuality makes us all unique our customs and family groups give us support.If the same cultures were shared by everyone what a dull world we would have indeed! Cherish your Native inheritance! Most who will visit this page honor your Nation for if nothing else it's survival against s uch great odds of it's oppression! Thank you for being you, you of the POWHATAN and related Nations.....

Hey, I just read through many of the postings and It seems there is a sort of Descendants of Pocohontas reunion taking place here. I'd be glad to here from any of those descended from Major John Bolling as only one Benjamin would have been of POWHATAN blood. Could anyone verify to me that Benjamin is actually his son? I gather that he was born in 1734 and died in 1832 at age 98. Born in Henrico co. VA. First wife was Patty Felts with whom he had had 9 children. Second wife was Charity Larrimore with whom he had 6 children. This man was busy in his years!!!!!!!! If you can proove this Pocohontas to me you'll find you have tribal descendants all over the world. So lets set this record straight! Fact or fiction?

The record being set straight is important and I commend your site for its virtue! Good to see that there is still a POWHATAN nation. I bet the Bolling family made a lot of money from the POWHATAN lands they acquired. The red Bollings were not really welcome to it.Is there a reservation? Great Web page!!!!!!!!

Having read your comments about Pocahontas, I can agreee in principle, but the way you describe the project as, "Euro-American" is offensive to the Europeans who found the film just as historically inaccurate, and to describe the English as 'treacherou s' is distortion of the truth. I am sure in a similar position American Indians would ahve done the same thing to Europeans. Do not succumb to hypocrisy.

My children also decend from the "marriage" of John Rolfe and Matoaka. I have seen much from the decendants of their son, but didn't she also have 3 or 4 other children? Is there somewhere that I can get information on them, like names, etc? Having a family of very different cultural background, and alot of different Native blood lines, I don't seem to fit on to the checkerboard of white/brown, white/red, white/yellow or white/black, and don't fit into any of the hurt feelings. I feel that I am blessed by being from so many different cultures, because I feel that The Creator has given me alittle of everyone, so that I can hate none. It is said that Creator took the same sacred earth and made all out of it on purpose, so that we could never place ourselves above each other....so that we will always be one. It would be nice.

When researching family bible in 1977 I came across information linking my family with two different tribes, listed as not anglo....This confused me at first...but then I did more research..and found that the families mixed around 1800's..near Williams berg Va. Since then I have been proud to be an Indian..Many opportunities have opened up to me since this discovery..I have always looked different then others that I know and that makes me feel special..I have been told that I have haunting eyes.. that m elt the soul..and ease the spirit.I am the last living Randolph that came thru New York to Connecticut...from Virginia colonies from my family line.

Princess Nicketti, daughter of Princess Cleopatra, is my Grandmother. To see a chart for my linage to her and the tribe go to my web page and look under the article about Princess Nicketti. It's a genealogical outline from her to my daughter Jessica. http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/f/r/e/Myra-E-Freeman/ Princess Nicketti is mentioned in the history of the Monacan tribe history, (page 1; paragraph starts with "The 1720s..."). http://members.tripod.com/monacannation/ Anyone wanting to share information about the history of Nicketti and the tribe please email me. Also I am the manager for a Baisden discussion group whose bloodlines go back to the Branhams. And I am a member of the Cabell Foundation. I do not feel we should deny anyone their opinion of Disney. Most of us posting are mainly of white descent and we should try to understand that the actual modern Native Americans have suffered prejuice against themselves in their lifetime. Those of us beyond 1/16 or 1/32 native blood have no idea what how this prejuice feels even though we may have studied it in books and know it is wrong. And as far as the evil white man. We must admit what our white forefathers did to the Native Americans. We have come along way but we have to remember that less than 50 years ago a man could have his wife committed to an asylem like a piece of property. We should not be nieve about human rights violations that are occuring even today. That's my soap box for the day.

Hi!! I think that you are to negative about Pocahontas and what she stands for! It was not because she (maybe) saved John Smith, but because she made a bridge between the white and the indians.

I think your site is wonderful!!! I have a question for you.....Is the language used by the Powhatan Confederacy Algonquian Wakashan? I am having difficulty isolating the language. I understand that there were an estimated 30 different tribes believed to belong to this "confederacy". Most tribes having their own "identifying language". Could you stear me in the right direction perhaps? I thank you!!

Thank you for a wonderful site. I wish my finances would allow me to visit the festival this year, maybe next year. Can anyone tell me how or where to get Powhatan language classes or tapes? I am descended from Nicketti daughter of Cleopatria daughter of Wahunsonacook through my mother. Are there any records of Cleopatria's husbands and other children? Are there any records of Cleopatria's mother? I would like to keep in touch and say Hello to all my cousins. I attend local powwow's as often as possibl e. I am usually looked upon as an outsider, basically ignored and treated as an unwelcome visitor - after all I do not have a federal indian id number. I had to stop wearing my regalia when the Disney movie came out. Mostly the comments were - oh look! a pocahontas costume! Now I go in street clothes with a dance shawl. Can anyone help me with new regalia ideas? Thank you to any who responds to my questions. Peace and love from FiveKiller. Nicketti@msn.com

Hello everyone, I am researching all types of American Indian weapons. I have some small information on Powhatan Bows and arrows and next to nothing on their war clubs and other equipment. I know the bows were mostly made from Witch Hazel and the arrow s from Phragmites reeds. I would like to talk with anyone that has an interest in this or could point me to some knowledgeable people or books that would help me. I will let you all know of any information I find if you are interested also. Also, My wife is part Oglala Sioux if it makes a difference.

I am a tenth great granddaughter of Pocahontas Rebeca and John Rolfe. Like most Powhatans, I was very upset at the Disney film. I am currently finishing a degree in history and writing my senior capstone on the Powhatans. Prof. Helen Rountree's books have been a great asset to my work. For those descendants of Pocahontas looking for their lineages may I sugest the book "Pocahontas and her Descendants" by Wyndham Robertson. Robertson was U. S. Senator and Governor of Virginia and he was a descendant of Pocahontas and John Rolfe. His brother, Thomas Robertson was Governor of Louisiana. Their cousin, Thomas Mann Randolph, was President Thomas Jefferson's daughter Martha's husband and he also was a Governor of Virginia. Their son, George Wythe Randolph was Secretary of War under Pres. Jefferson Davis. Senator John Randolph of Roanoke also was a descendant and family genealogist. And, let us not forget First Lady, Edith Bolling Wilson, who proudly put her lineage back to Powhatan in her "Memoirs".On my own line, William Fleming was a member of the Continental Congres from 1779 to 1781. William Fleming was Chief Justice on the Virginia Supreme Court, 1789 to 1824. His brothers Thomas and Charles were Colonels and brother, John was a Captain in Washington's Continental Army. Our family has an execptional lineage, which we start with Powhatan. We are not ashamed to have a Native American ancestory, instead we take great pride in it. We wish the history books would remember who we are and the contributions we hav

As one who is a direct descendant of Matoaka but primarily of European roots, I enjoy this web-ste, but I am appalled by its tone concerning "Euro-Americans." Many, if not most, of us who were born in this country, look back on the historical treatmen t of American Indians, African-Americans, and other ethnic groups (some of whom were white, by the way) with great sadness. It is true that there were white people in previous times who were cruel in their actions toward other ethnic groups. Indeed, one can find good and evil in all races, and, to a degree, in each individual. But for this web-site to brand the entire white race as evil and dangerous to all other races is as reprehensible as it was for whites to have branded all Indians as savages or a ll Africans as intellectually deficient. This attitude is a transparent tool of manipulation, and it needs to be corrected in this forum. Aside from that, keep up the good work.

Recently I came across an article in the May/June 1997 issue of the NMAI Runner (newsletter for the National Museaum of the American Indian)- the article was titled "The Enduring Peoples of Pocahontas" and it mentions the Mattaponi Indian Museum in Vir ginia, and the curator, Minnie-Ha-Ha Custalow, who is also the wife of Chief Curtis Custalow. I wonder if anyone can tell me if Minnie-Ha-Ha was named after an Indian ancestor. The reason I ask is my grandfather always told me that his mother was named Minnie-Ha-Ha after her Indian ancestor. I later learned that Great-Grandma Minnie Palin Helms had always said she was indeed named after her native ancestor, who had married Henry Palin. Henry Palin had land on Albemarle Sound, (Virginia)and later went to Pasquotank, North Carolina. Many people in the family insisted Henry had married an Indian girl, but no one was sure of the tribe. Quaker records show Henry's name along with his childrens and grandchildrens names, but do not mention who his wife was. I recently learned that Minnie Palin's legal name really was Minnie-Ha-Ha - many of us had not taken this too seriously. Now I am wondering if there really was an Indian girl named Minnie-Ha-Ha who married my ancestor, Henry Palin, in the 1600 or 1700's (???) Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank-You, J. Hendricks

Hi! I am very interested in Native American culture. My name is Jor'Danna and I live in Markham,Illinois. I'm 16 years old. Anyway to get to the point, I want to find out about my identity, I am African American, what I mean by this is that my grandmot her told me that her grandfather was of the Cherokee tribe and so is my grandfather's family. I know that Cherokee tribes are in the south. My grandpa is from Alabama and my grandmother's family is from Mississippi. My dad's family is from Texas and New M exico, I'm not sure what tribe he said but I know they have Indian in them. I've read and heard about intermarriages between African Americans and Native Americans when blacks were brought here in the late 1500's. My whole family has Native American featu res. My mom,myself and greatgrandmother really look like Native Americans. I just wish I knew what's behind my history. It's hard to trace your family back after half of your generation was split apart. Family tree searching cost entirely too much. I wish there was a way to find out! I'm proud of being both cultures! If anyone has any information please email me at WELLSGRUMPY1@cs.com.

We are ORCA, and we want to provide *free* comicbooks for reading purposes to children of direct Native American decent. The comicbook has long been undervalued as a reading support tool for children. Repetitive reading is a superb way for children to strengthen their ability.

I can also be reached online by you going to: http://www.comicon.com and using that posting board under the AND STILL, I WAIT topic thread.

Hi, My name is Bridget I am a direct descendant of John Rolfe and Pocahontas. My GGG Uncle William Cleveland Rolph had done a history on our family starting with the year 1516 thru the mid 1940's. My direct family history ends with my Mother: Barbara Louise Pettit Born Dec. 23, 1945. My Grandmohter Agnes Edna Rolph: Born Jan. 8, 1920 who later married my Grandfather in Easton, PA. Clarence E Pettit in 1943.I have several letters and family trees written by and about relatives all within this history from my Uncle. I would like to continue with the Family's History however, I really don't know where to begin. I do know that Pocahontas had married my late Grandfather John Rolfe in Jamestown, Virgina on April 5, 1614 and that they had a son Thomas Rolfe who later married Miss Poythrees of England and had one son Anthony Rolfe, and one daughter Jane Rolfe, who married Robert Bowling of Virgina. The story continues to 1676 when Jane Bowling (Rolfe) died and was burried at Kippax Va, then jumps to 1776 with a lot of years missing in the 1700' and 1800's. The information picks back up in the late 1800's / early 1900's which is when my Grandfather John Rolph was born. I could go on however, If you are in my family I am hoping that Maybe some of the names I had mentioned may begin some brainstorming for you. Please contact me by e-mail: hrp1@fast.net I would be more than happy to share my information. My sister Melissa Turner had also written with-in here in hopes of some responses. Which has received. Thank you, From the both of us.

One of her decendants lives in TN and another is on a mission here in Canada. My GGGrandmother was Seneca. She lived at Catterauggas Reservation in New York and raised my greatgrandfather and his 11 brothers and sister on that reservation. After her death, the children and her husband went to Indiana and settled there and then moved out West. My husband's greatgrandmother was QuaPaw from Arkansaw before they were moved out west.

My great grandfather was John Ralph (changed earlier from Rolfe) and I know I am a direct decendent to Pocahontas, but know very little, a family heritage has been done, but li ttle is know what happen to Thomas Rolfe and his family. I am curious to know as much as I can for myself and my son, so that one day when he will understand, I can tell him of his family and heritage to the Powhatan tribe.

Hello, my name is Candace and I live in Houston, Texas. I attended my first college history class on January 20, 2000. I was surprised when my teacher, Mary Miller, gave the class our first homework assignment. I wasn't surprised that she was assigning homework, but rather what she was assigning. She told us to watch the Disney version of Pocahontas. The class laughed when she said we were to watch the Disney version, but very few of us saw the significance of watching the Disney version. I knew immedi ately why she wanted us to watch it. I remembered when my Mom bought the video and she told me that it was a true story but that Disney had turned the entire truth of it all into a twisted fairy tale. I never asked what the truth was, but now I know. I re alize now that there are some things we all seem to take for granted when learning our country's history. We all seem to take things as we are told to be true simply because it is in a book that claims to be historically accurate when in all reality the t ruth is something we must search for, not something handed to us in a book. Mrs. Miller also suggested that we look on the internet for information on Pocahontas. That- searching- is what brought me to the truth. Thank You, Candace Kizer Student, Houston Community College

I am Pamunkey-Catabaw native grew up as a Hispanic-American in an urban environment.Did not think too muchabout it until the last few years before my mother passed.Even after questioning my mom she would give a lot of history.For she was taught not to talk about her heritage at all.I feel that I gained a lot knowing about the Hispanic Culture because their culture do not put down native people.I am now learning a lot about my people whether native americans from Virginia or other states.I am PROUD.I wi ll use the Puertorican Quotation "en conjuntos" we are together.James Uzqateguy-Guimont(Washohanahawk)

I did enjoy the Disney drama but I knew that it was not true. I am a blackfoot indian raised in the german/irish family way. It was a great joy to hear the honest story. My only wish is that Disney had used the true indian history so that the young children can see the unfairness that existed in that time. It has been romanticized so much that kids think that the English people were so eager to help the natives. This site has moved me and helped me to see things in my heritage that my family never showed me. Thank You for showing me a glimps of my indian roots.

I wonder if my ancestor Tamzyne Page was part of the New Jersey Powhatans. In 1870 she listed her race as "Mulatto" in the Census. However, my mother said that she was "Indian". Tamzyine lived in what is known as the Welsh Mountain Region of Eastern Pennsylvania. Tamyzine may have attended a mission school run by the Quakers. The problem is that I have not been able to locate her family. My mother said that the "Ochos" were her cousins and they may be related to Tamyzine Page. Tamyzine lived fro m about 1830-1890. If anyone can help me with information on my ancestors I would appreciate it.

Your website is excellent. I have always been interested in Native American Indian Culture and especially that of the Powhatans. Being a native Virginia, I have visited the Jamestowne site many times. Each time I always leave with an overwhelming fe eling of sadness and regret due to the injustices that the native indian peoples suffered at the hands of the Europeans. I'll never understand why man cannot learn to live and let live. Thanks again for the great website and continue the good work!!!

The following is an excerpt from the book; AMERICAN HOLOCAUST by David E. Stannard. The article has transcribed from old English to modern English.In 1610 Governor Thomas West D la Warr of Jamestown colonyrequested Powhatan to return a runaway Englis hman. The Governor felt Powhatan did not respond in a satisfactory manner so he launched a military campaign against Powhatan.The campaign was headed up by George Percy, the brother of the Earl of Northumberland and De la Warr's second in command. This i s in Percy's own words.Drawing my soldiers in to Battle placing a Capt or Lt at every file, we marched towards the Indian Town...and we fell in upon them, put some fifteen or sixteen to the sword and almost all the rest to flight...my Lt. brought with hi m the Queen and her children and one Indian prisoner for the which I taxed him because he had spared them. His answer was that having them now in my custody I might do with them what I pleased. Upon the same I caused the Indians head to be cut off...then dispersed my files, appointing my soldiers to burn their houses and to cut down their corm growing about the town.With the Indians thus dead or dispersed, their village destroyed and their food supplies laid to waste, Percy sent out another raiding party to do the same to another Indian town and then marched to his boats with the Indian Queen and her children in tow. There however, his soldiers, did begin to murmer because the queen and her children were spared. This seemed a reasonable complaint to Percy , so he called a council together and it was agreed upon to put the children to death the which was effected by throwing them overboard, shooting out their brains in the water. Upon his return to Jamestown, however, Percy was informed that Governor De la Warr was unhappy with him because he had not yet killed the Queen. Advised by his chief lieutenant that it would be best to burn her alive, Percy decided to end his day of "so much bloodshed" with a final act of mercy; instead of burning her, he had the Q ueen quickly killed by stabbing her to death.Unfortunately our school systems today do not teach the real facts of how we settled this country, and the horror the Native Americans suffered at the Colonists hands. I suppose the real tragedy is, our governm ent still attempts to break treaties with the Indian Nations.Al Byrd Council Chief of the "Wicocomico Taptico Indian Nation Inc."

First I would like to say that although it would be nice to think I was of native American Descent I am not. I will not make any claims to such just because it seems to be "in Vogue" at the moment. Having said that I wanted to commend you on your site. I had heard of your reservation but never knew where you were located. I will be bringing my family to your next festival in May and was wondering if we could, perhaps, visit prior to then. Your clarification of the Pocohontas (sp?) story is greatly appr eciated. My children loved the Disney movie but I will be telling them the true version so that they can gain a better understanding of what various peoples have endured. Thanks again for a wonderful site.

I would like to hear some opinions on what Powhatan people actually think of Wayne Newton. I know he claims Powhatan blood and ties to "Pocahontas" Pleas e-mail and let me know what you think. As for your guestbook. I got half way through it and I had to stop. It is amazing to me how many wannabees are out there. It seems to be the new trend to be "Part Indian" I even have friends I have known my whole life, whose family my family has known for a long time, telling me that they are Indian. These people have a romantic, idealized idea of what is like to be Indian. Where were all of these people,claiming to be Indian,not too long ago when Indians were dealing with racisim. When my Mother was in High School in the late 60's early 70's, kids actually removed themselves from her classes because she was Indian. These are the same people who are claiming to be "Part Indian". They think going to a couple of Powwows and buying a dreamcatcher to put in their cars makes them Indian. I can not wait until this trend is over. When people ask me what I am, I almost do not want to tell them. If I have to hear "Oh my grandmother was a Cherokee Princess" one more time, I am going ot loose my mind. Why can't people just be and accept who they are. And not try to claim and understanding to something they will never understand. I feel like my culture is being raped by the WHITE man all over again. I know I sound bitter, and I probably am, but if anyone out there had to hear all of the outrageous stories I have, they would understand.

I have recently been able to confirm that I am probably descended from Powhatan through his daughter, Cleopatra (no doubt that name came from John Rolfe).I am also 1/16 Cherokee. I consider this a great honor and regret that early colonists did not take such an attitude toward the Native American people. It is a shame that such rich cultures throughout the continent have been torn apart by our ignorance. I hope that the Powhatan culture lasts forever.

I thought it was great to find out about the true story of Pocahontas. The film of Disney's aren't at all based on much true fact (that's also true in Anastasia). But I reckon you should try to talk other film producers into making a film about the r eal story on Pocahontas or really Matoaka.

I am a second grade teacher and I am teaching my students about Native Americans. This is a great site about Powhatan Indians. I was also glad to see the correct information about Pocahantas. I will share it with my students. Please send any informa tion about true heroes and heroines in the Powhatan Community. Thanks!

Hi! My name is Ounika. I attended the festival and I had a wonderful time. I'm of Cherokee descent through my grandmother who was fullblooded. I love the festival because of the shows and I can buy things from there. I always say that if I'm going to buy something of American Indian, I want it to be authentic. I also read the story about Pocahontas(the true story) and it amazed me. I saw the movie myself and I thought that the story that was told was true. But I now know not to believe what the White Man has to say about us because they just write lies about us and I don't want to give in to that kind of racism. I thank you for informing us about the true story about her.

Thanks for a great time on Monday. You provide invaluable insight through the closeness of your gathering. Colleen, my 7 year old was enriched by her experience (as were her parents). Ray Pena's demonstration was exciting and the artists always some thing new.

It was great to read the truth about Pocahontas. I have not found much truth in the white man's history books even about women. So I was not surprised to read of the distortions in this story as well. White man's history is mostly a reflection of his w ishes and fears; other races and the other gender are seen through very distorted eyes. My grandmother told me of Native American blood in our family 4 generations back from me. My gg grandmother worked for General Wood as his housekeeper in the Indian sc hool in Carlysle, Pa. She married a man who was Pennsylvania Dutch ( Newcomber). We are not sure what tribe she was from but think perhaps Cherokee?? If anyone out there has suggestions or info that might be helpful in tracing this ancestor's background I'd appreciate hearing from you. Creator of this website, You have done a magnificent job! Thank You.

I had the extreme pleasure of visiting the reservation this day of Oct. 08, 1999, along with my son and his 4th grade classmates from the Sewell Elementary School during their class outing. Your festival was fun, informative, and just down right enjo yable. It not only created an enlightenment for all of us, but it also allowed us to see how our first citizens of America came to be and made their lives work. I feel it is a must see for all our New Jersey students to have an outting at the resevation a s a part of their History lessons in reference to the History of New Jersey. I am looking forward to the next Festival in the year 2000. You will be during yourself a big favor by visiting the reservation and it is a great way for the your family to spend a day together.

This is the best Native American Site on the web. I have some Indian blood in me, according to what my Mother told me before she passed on (she had an ancestor in the Lenni-Lenape tribe) so I have a very keen interest in what is happening to the Nativ e Indians, which is why I try to attend as many festivals as I possibly can.
