About this Item

Title

  • Being Indigenous in Jim Crow Virginia : Powhatan people and the color line

Summary

  • "Explores experiences and strategies of tidewater Virginia Indians, descendants of peoples of the seventeenth-century Algonquian Powhatan chiefdom, in maintaining, creating, and re-creating their identities as Native Americans from the 1850s through the Jim Crow era. Examines how tidewater Native individuals, families, and communities positioned themselves as red people, rather than Black or white, in an era when some white Virginians argued that Virginia's Indians were 'mulattoes' and 'colored people.'"-- Provided by publisher.
