The Old New World: Creating a Chesapeake Indian Village

block First Landing State Park

In a joint effort with the Nansemond Indian Tribe, this park in Virginia Beach will develop an authentic Virginia Algonquian Indian Village along the existing Cape Henry Trail. The village will include a chief's house, a sweathouse, and areas devoted to food preparation and crafts, with interpretive materials focusing on the culture of Chesapeake Indians and their complex relationship to the Chesapeake Bay and its resources. The project will be completed in time to serve as a backdrop for living-history programs during the upcoming 400th anniversary of John Smith's "Voyages of Exploration" in the Chesapeake Bay.

Amount Funded: $27,500.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
