Cheroenhaka tribe commends Archeological Society members

On Jan. 21, Chief Walt “Red Hawk” Brown of the Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian tribe awarded three members of the Nansemond Chapter of the Archeological Society of Virginia with certificates of appreciation for their support of the annual Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian powwows and school day events.

The Nansemond chapter began its partnership with the Tribe in 2005 as a “public outreach and educational project.” The ASV Nansemond Chapter members will be available at the Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian tribal powwow to talk about prehistoric and historic artifacts on Saturday, July 4. The powwow will be on tribal land, 27345 Aquia Path, Courtland. For further information, visit www.cheroenhaka-nottoway.org.
