Stone, Bone, and Clay

Virginia Indians' History of 18,000 Years


Stone, Bone, and Clay: Virginia Indians’ History of 18,000 Years

6:30 to 8:00 pm - at the Carver Recreation Center, 233 4th St NW, Charlottesville VA

In partnership with the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights




Dr. Karenne Wood, a member of the Monacan Indian Nation and an anthropologist, examines the deep history of American Indian presence in what we now call Virginia and considers how our understanding of that history has changed with archaeological discoveries. She also analyzes the ways in which that story has been presented and how Native people have come to be seen as people of the past through the interpretations of museums and historians, policy makers, and popular media. She considers these issues from a Native perspective and offers ideas intended to expand the story we tell about Virginia’s first people. Following Karenne’s presentation we will experience Monacan Tribal Dancers.
