To the Editor:
I just want to personally thank everyone, tribal members, council, Heritage Foundation Board of Directors, honorary members and concerned citizens and individuals at large for all their kind donations in support of the rebuilding of our vandalized Palisade Native Village (Cattashowrock Town).

Because of your donations to our tax-exempt Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian Tribal Heritage Foundation Inc., we are rapidly approaching our needed goal of $5,000 to rebuild our Palisade Native Fort in time for our first event — Primitive Skills Gathering — in May 2016.

Currently, as of this morning, we have received $2,200 via the gofundme Cheroenhaka Villiage campaign initiated by Tribal Council Member Gary “Twin Hawks” Burnette.

We have received a net of $736.52 via PayPal donations and $270 in checks/cash for a total of $3,206.52. Now we are just short $2,000 from reaching our needed goal to rebuild the Native Palisade Village.

We are so appreciative of all the support, the media coverage by The Tidewater News and 101.7 FM; to include, all other organizations, ASV and some of the local churches for their kind tax-exempt donations.

Again thank you for your support.
