a Virginia reader Nov 4, 2002
Very interesting book. I learned a lot and was entertained as well. I'd recommend this book to anyone who's interested in the struggles of Native Americans and how they live today. Also a handy tribe map and recipes!
informative, enlighting, educational!! Oct 10, 2000
This book did much to enrich my very limited knowlege of the contemporary Virginia Indian . It provides a great wealth of knowlege for any reader interested in Indians living throughout Virginia today, as well as for the reader who may be introduced to the subject for the first time. It also does much to eliminate the sterotype thinking of those whose only introduction to the Virginia Indian community may be through a childhood visit to the Jamestown Settlement or the story of Pocahontas. By focusing on telling their story through personal interviews, you get to know some of these vibrant people and, the difficulties they faced growing up Indian.. As one of the women said, it was diffucult to be Indian and live in two different worlds. For anyone who wants to learn more about the subject, this is a must read! It is a great research tool for anyone who wants true insite into the history of the eight state recognized tribes in Virginia, as well as providing a fascinating account of the many compexities of Virginia Indians today It is informative, educational, well-documented and well-written!.
