The Louisa County Historical Society is pleased to welcome Dr. Karenne Wood, who will give the lecture at our 2017 Annual Meeting. In March of this year, Karenne Wood, Director of Virginia Indian Programs at Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, delivered the keynote lecture at a conference in London marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Pocahontas. The conference was organized by the Institute for Historical Research at the University of London and was supported by the Omohundro Institute for Early American History and Culture, The British Library, and The University of Warwick.

Her lecture, Prisoners of History: Pocahontas and American Indian Women in Cultural Context, explores two very different stories of American women, Pocahontas and Mary Jemison.
