Family Portraits: Virginia Indians

At the Turn of the 20th Century

This is an online photographic exhibit produced by Sweet Briar College showing the faces of just a few of the actual people, they and their children and grandchildren, that Walter Plecker tried to erase from history. It is worth looking at these pictures with that thought in mind.

  1. The pictures are just breath taking.
    I have been trying to prove my VA. N.C. Taylor, Mullins connection for years and when I saw the pic. of the lady in long braids my jaw dropped. She has a mouth identical to my grandmother who had black braids just like that and also dark skin. That is a lovely picture. Thank you for sharing.
