The Virginia Indian Heritage Trail is a landmark publication, created by members of the Virginia tribes. It reflects Virginia Indian perspectives on history and how that history is interpreted.
Now in its 3rd edition, The Virginia Indian Heritage Trail is the best general introduction to Virginia Indian history and cultures available. It appeals to a broad audience, from scholars to school children.
The volume contains information on more than two dozen tribal and interpretive sites, chosen for historical accuracy and cultural sensitivity. It also includes an overview of the history of Virginia Indians; historic and contemporary photographs; lists of Virginia Indian resources and suggested readings; a guide to “Writing and Thinking about Virginia Indians” developed by the Virginia Council on Indians; and a Foreword by Chief Kenneth Adams of the Upper Mattaponi Tribe.
The book is free to the public from VFH (with a modest shipping charge). For more information contact Karenne Wood.
