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.
My family has Indian roots and I have tried to find out a little about them.
My maiden name is Crocker and we also are related to the Collins' of Delair.
So its good to see people of my race in the same state I live in, hopefully I will visit the museum soon.
Its so funny when you speak a different language in this country, and white folks get mad " If you are living in America, speak the language" hilarious, since english wasnt the native language of america...
I have been studying and gathering geneology for my family on my own and from others.
I am honored and delighted to discover that I am the 14th great-grandaughter of Rebecca Rolfe, otherwise known as POCAHONTAS, through her son's marriage.
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.
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.
