To make sure we hold on to and deepen the knowledge we gained during Native American Heritage Month in November, join us for an in-depth discussion group (via Zoom) on the history of indigenous Virginians using The Pocahontas Project Online Course as a guide. Each discussion will cover two sessions of this 10-session, online course and be co-facilitated by a Rappahannock Tribe Member as well as members of The Alden’s staff. The final session will be facilitated by The Pocahontas Project developers, Chief Anne Richardson of the Rappahannock Tribe and Rick Tatnall.
The Pocahontas Project is a collaborative effort between the County of Gloucester Virginia, the Rappahannock Indian Tribe and Replenish Richmond that presents native Virginian history around the time of European contact through the lens of Pocahontas’s life and legacy. This course also discusses the history and culture of Virginia’s Native American Tribes, with special attention to the eight Virginia tribes that were aligned with paramount Chief Powhatan, father of Pocahontas.
To participate, you must register. You will receive free access to the 10-session course as well as links to all five discussion groups (which will be emailed out the day of the event). If you wish to attend a discussion group, you must register at least two hours before the start time, but we recommend much more time so that you can review the course materials in advance.
