Plans of the Patawomeck Tribe of Virginia

The Patawomeck Tribe of Virginia is planning to build a replica village and cultural center in White Oak, as 80% of the current tribe lives in that area of Stafford. The village will contain long houses and such things as dugout canoes in various stages of development along with interpretive signs. The cultural center will have a library of books dealing with language, history, genealogy, etc. There will be paintings and sculpture of modern depictions of ancient works. The tribe is also planning to have displays of the Marlborough/Indian Point excavations and their findings that were done in the 1930s by the Smithsonian Institution.
