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 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.Best regards, Mike Flinn Mike Flinn What is left to say... I am a 40 yr old female who rides horses and my harley davidson and I am so free spirited at times it scares me.. We'll be coming from Toms River from an adult community on Rt 70. I have sisters and brothers Ive never even seen before.It blew all of my preconceived notions about the Indian Culture as a whole ( which I've gotten from old movies and old books).Hearing it from the American Indians changed everything. Cristina Causing Hi, I really enjoyed reading your site, its great to see such good content and illustrations.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 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 am now trying to learn more about Ware and her ties to the Powhatan people. Peace, Michael Gerety Mike Ive been in foster homes and so I was unable to learn about my family history. Im told that my mother was Cherokee and her father was a son of a chief,possibly a chief of the nation of The People but for unfortunate reasons I dont know.Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I have children of my own now and they are curiuse.Wouldn't it be something if I discover my roots right here in my home.My father told me the property I live on was once all wooded and had all types of trees and he used to fish in the creek behind my house.
