Each year in September, the Nottoway Indian Tribe of Virginia celebrates their annual pow wow on their ancestral lands in Surry County, Virginia.

Since receiving state recognition by the Commonwealth of Virginia back in February of 2010 along with two other tribes, the Cheroenhaka Nottoway and the Powhatan Patawomeck, the tribe of and their Chief Lynette Allston have had great reason to celebrate.

In addition to recognition in Virginia, the Nottoway Indian tribe of Virginia’s pow wow has also been recognized for years as a pow wow of healing.

According to Chief Allston, “The first year we had the powwow, the MC called it the water powwow, because everybody was crying. People who had never been to a powwow that were in the stands were crying. That is a cleansing, and those are the types of things that we have experienced.”
