Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian Tribe

Southampton County, VA


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 publish a tribal journal call the Waskehee, which means "to see" in our native tongue. It highlights episodes of the ethno-history of our tribe from first contact with the Colonials in what is now Nottoway County, Virginia to the present.

Make sure you get a copy of our Tribal Journal, the Waskehee, and learn of our people, the Cheroenhaka (Nottoway) Indian Tribe, for "We Are Still Here!"
