[PAST EVENT] Brown Bag: "Continuity Within Change: The Virginia Indians National Register Project"

September 30, 2020
12pm - 1pm

This landmark project represents the first effort by the Commonwealth of Virginia to identify, research and nominate historically significant Virginia Indian landscapes to both the State and National Registry of Historic Places. Dr. Buck Woodward '13 and Dr. Megan Victor '18 discuss their recent archaeological research and community engagement for The Millie Woodson-Turner Nottoway Reservation Allotment and Farmstead, the first such effort with an Iroquoian descendant community. The presentation will focus on methodological approaches to the research, civic engagement with tribal and other key stakeholders, completing an evidenced-based final report and the National Registry nomination process. 

The project was undertaken in conjunction with the American Indian Resource Center and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources with funding from the National Park Service.
