I have information on the Winebrenner family if any one is interested. I use and study alot of the Indian ways and try to understand what my ancestors went through and still are in some ways.I commend you.. Gypsy Kimber Gypsy Mangrum....(Gypsy) I am interested to coming to your museum, perhaps on Saturday, I need to know what address you are located at so, I can put into Mapquest to get directions. Im 30 years old and I have a family tree that my grandmother showed me and I am an ancestor of "Pocahontas". I dont have any clue as to how to find out because I never was able to be close to my biological family.
Thank You Jimmy Jimmy My summer US history class is studying about Pocahantas and we read the article on the Myth that you have in class and I really enjoyed it. James James Barker To Chief Crazy Horse,thank you for the site i found it very interesting especially the Pocahontas myth!
It really showed our class that there is more to the story than what is really told I really enjoyed it and thank you... This i always assumed was correct now i know differently.
I would love to learn more about POWHATAN culture and coverse with others that may be related in some distant manner. I have known for many years there is Native American blood in my family but after seeing you all last year I am trying to find out more about myself and how I can still help out. Dion Daly My name is Melanie and only recently I learned of my biological father being Native American.
I have researched his family and have learned he was of Powhatan decent. I was told she died giving birth to my Grandfather; Ernest M.
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 am cherokee indian and my grandfather Walter Kenova Bradby use to be Chief before he passed away. We visited family in Front Royal; Tappahanock/Rappahanock; Grand Dad's Brother married Grand Mother's Sister; Dad's double-first cousin, Augustine Willis married Mom's Aunt, Viola Clarke.
If anyone knows the Holmes name, please contact me via e-mail. Mother: Pearl Borum Willis,(daughter-Ferdinand Borum & Pearl Mae Clark(e)Borum, Grand-daughter of Hester "Grandma Easter" Hobday & Elias Clarke.
i'm very proud of the poeple who made this site possible- it gives me pride and joy to know that we are making ourselves known.
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.
I can say I feel really proud to be a part of such a great heritage. Barbee who was born between the years 1888 to 1903.
I have met so many new friends on the long 2 year journey of self discovery and I would like to give thanks to all that have assisted!!! betty I found out something very recently that I found to be appauling and, that was a group of people out of Madison, Wisconsin are putting on a 3 day excursion where they are charging people to learn about what they have termed as Shamanism; They will be putting on this workshop in Dodgeville Wiscosin at some retreat center Now if you thought that was bad it gets worse on this excursion they will be charging people for Sweats, Vision Questing and, a wide variety of other various medicine practices; In addition, the dollar amount that they are charging is outrageous it is 5 plus dollars; First of all The importance of Medicine Practices Native American or, Otherwise should not be taken lightly and, it should not be cheapend by a price tag, nor should it be sold ever for any reason; Secondly These practices are the birth-rites of the indiginous people of this and, other countries and, their cultural heritage should be treated with sacredness and, respect and, those who disrespect it by doing what these people are doing should have to pay some kind of pennance; Last but, not Least, these people have little to no real education on the subjects in which they are teaching on which makes them poor teachers and, frauds; If these people truly had wished to learn they should have obviously taken a very different approach with the understanding that, there is no guarntee that the indiginous people of anykind of Medicine Practices would teach them or, would not teach them anything at all I'm sure you can all understand now why i am angry!
I have been studying and gathering geneology for my family on my own and from others.
