Description

The major focus of the Pamunkey Indian Museum is to teach about the Pamunkey people and their way of life throughout history, from the ice age to the present. Tools and other items are shown as they would have been seen and used by the Native Americans of that period. Original artifacts are displayed along with replicas based on the most up-to-date information on how things were made, handled, used, and worn out. It is hoped visitors will be inspired by our history and whether by a brisk walk through or studying some perid in detail, an interest will be generated about the lives of the people who left this great legacy.

History

The history of the Pamunkey Tribe has been recorded by archaeologist, anthropologist and historians and dates back ten to twelve thousand years. The actual legal status by the white man's criteria does not come into being until the 1646 and 1677 treaties with the King of England.
