November 17: The Powhatan People
More than 15,000 people lived in Virginia’s coastal plain ruled by the paramount chief Powhatan when Europeans began arriving in the region in the 16th century. Known collectively as Powhatan Indians, the 28 to 30 groups within the chiefdom spent decades at war and in peace with the Jamestown settlers as the colony expanded into native land. Join us as we learn more about the chiefdom and the ancestors who still live in Virginia today.

All virtual teacher workshop sessions are provided free to teachers thanks to a generous gift from the Charles S. & Millicent P. Brown Family Foundation.


Located along Virginia’s scenic Colonial Parkway, Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with new protective protocols and social-distancing procedures to carefully create a safe environment for everyone to enjoy. Registration is required and connection information will be emailed the day prior to each program. To register for a virtual teacher workshop, contact annemarie.baker@jyf.virginia.gov.
