As our tribe’s spokesperson “Dar-sun-ke” (the Tongue), and Chief, it is with great zeal on behalf of the Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian Tribal Council and Members, that we welcome you in the name of the Creator (Quaker-Hun-te) to our Tribal Web Site.

Each year we host three tribal events on our 263 acres of tribal land at Cattashowrock Town. A Green Corn Dance Powwow the first Saturday in July, a Native American Revival, Crusade for Christ / Yahshua, the Great Awakening of the Holy Spirit, on the third Saturday in September and an Intertribal Corn Harvest Powwow and School Day on the first weekend in November. The School Day is the Friday before the November Powwow with a bonfire that evening.
