last of the powhatan's

How would you feel if your nationality or tribe wasn't counted for the "census"? Well one tribe knows what that's like. You all either have heard of or know who Pocahontas is, right? Well a few years ago, I met the chief of her tribe in Virginia at a powwow. I was amazed at how welcoming to me. It made me sad to know that because they don't have enough members left, they are not counted. The Powhatans are a part of history and by not "counting " them its as if we're righting them out of history. If your native or non native, I ask that we come together to ask that the Powhatan be counted for in the census. How would you feel if it was your nationality or tribe wasn't accounted for? Lets be their voice so they can be heard.
