Annette C Price writes:

I hope that we can now respect all of the Native American Tribes of Virginia. After seven years we will finally be able in include the Wolf Creek Cherokee Tribe of Virginia as the twelfth state recognized tribe. The Wolf Creek Cherokee Tribe of Virginia is so well know for their cultural, historical and educational programs and their tribal center and museum that is open to the public free of charge displaying artifacts from their dig site in Varina, Henrico County that are up to 16000 years old.
