Last weekend marked the 26th Annual Nansemond pow wow in beautiful Suffolk, Virginia. The day was a beautiful mix of sun and gentle winds as the public and Indian Country gathered for a celebration of dance, social interaction and a bit of Virginia Indian history.

This year’s Nansemond pow wow also marked a historic year as it was the first time the tribe celebrated on land that was given to them by the city of Suffolk. The pow wow grounds now stand as the future site of their proposed Mattanock Town.
