The annual event is hosted as a way to educate guests about the cultures and importance of Native American tribes and their contributions made to society. The event comes on the heels of a dedication ceremony held the day prior when 105 acres of land along the James River were returned to the Chickahominy Tribe and are now permanently protected after being purchased with a grant from the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation.
