Gloucester Takes Part in Special Ceremony Honoring Pocahontas

On Monday, Gloucester County Virginia Government was honored to be a part of "A Day of Honor for Pocahontas and a Celebration of the Virginia Indian Tribes" at Mantle on Virginia Capitol Grounds in Richmond.

Keynote speaker, Chief Anne Richardson of the Rappahannock tribe, provided a historical overview of the life of Pocahontas, the challenges she faced and the impact of her actions on both England and the United States. The event was open to the public and attended by four chiefs from Virginia Indian tribes.

Our Acting County Administrator, Carol Steele, was a guest speaker during the program, which was held on the anniversary of the funeral and burial of Pocahontas on March 21, 1617.

The County was presented with a framed copy of a proclamation honoring Pocahontas signed by Governor of Virginia Glenn Youngkin by Deputy Secretary of the Commonwealth, Jenna Moon.

Steele said the County appreciates its partnership with the Pocahontas Project and the Rappahannock Indian Tribe for making the event possible.
