When Captain John Smith stepped ashore in the New World to found the Jamestown Settlement in 1607, the Chickahominy Indians were there. If you have wondered what life was like in the 1600s from the perspective of the First Americans, this brief ethnohistory will tell you the truth you may not have read in your school history books. The Chickahominy Indians-Eastern Division are the 21st century ancestors of the Indians who kept the colonizers alive and showed them how to grow the tobacco that made them rich. Four hundred years later, the ancestors of those Indians live in relative obscurity in the Tidewater area of Virginia. Find out what life was like then and how the modern Indians have survived in an often hostile and unfriendly world.
