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.

I now have a better understanding and greater appreciation of Indian people as the first inhabitants of this nation that I love. I do pray that God will restore you as a people in your rightful place in this land of plenty and opportunity. I invite everyone to visit our dating sites directory also. Eugen Dalling I love your web page, i wish you would have more festivals throught the year, especially in the summer.
I don't know how, I don't know when, but He will do it again, as the song goes. 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.
Tunisia 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.
it is about time that people learn who we are and what we have overcome throughout history. i am proud to be native american, and may all who are also be proud of their roots. keep the fires of our backround burning in a world that tries to block it out. anakalia My name is Mike Flinn and I am researching my family history as it relates to the Powhatan People.remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. 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.
