Thank You for sharing this image with us Vanessa. I will be the first to admit that I have not heard of this Indian Nation before. I have just assigned myself a research project for the weekend

Thank You for bringing the Nansemond Nation to our attention Vanessa. My lack of awareness I can partially attribute to geography as I have lived in Michigan for my entire life.
The Nansemond are a Federally-recognized tribal nation  located in Suffolk, Virginia.  They are one of the tribes  that lived in the area where the first Virginia settlers arrived and have remained in the same area ever since.
Thank You for letting us know bit more about the tribal history.
