Much of what historians now know about the Indians we call "the Powhatans" is derived from English sources, as the Powhatans had no written language.
Using primary sources as well as replica artifacts created by Mattaponi Indians, students will learn about what life was like in Virginia before the first English settlers made it their home. Students will identify the various natural resources used by Native American men, women, and children to make their tools and clothing. Students will also be engaged in a discussion about Pocahontas and the myths associated with her life.
1. The program will begin with an examination and comparison of John Smith's famous map to current maps of today.
2. The audience will then examine several John White paintings and examine replica artifacts.
3. The audience will then view several images created of Pocahontas over the last 400 years and discuss some of the myths that surround Pocahontas.
4. The program will end with time for a Question and Answer period.
The participant will:
- describe the interactions between the English settlers and the native peoples;
- describe how American Indians related to the climate and their environment to secure food, clothing, and shelter;
- discuss the environmental characteristics of Virginia's Coastal Plain region;
- identify the three major Indian language groups in Virginia, and recognize words from the Algonquian language.
