Zoom talk Sunday on Rappahannock Tribe

Julia Ann King will give a Zoom presentation at 4 p.m. Sunday for the Middlesex County Museum and Historical Society on studies of the Rappahannock Native American Tribe.

King, a professor of anthropology at St. Mary’s College in Maryland, has been working for the Rappahannocks in King and Queen County, where she has been investigating the Chief’s House and the Sam Nelson House.

During her presentation, King will interview Chief Anne Richardson, who is a member of the fourth consecutive generation of her family to lead Rappahannocks. Richardson will talk about the experience of the tribe at Indian Neck and about the recent acquisition of 465 acres of land at Fones Cliffs in Richmond County, location of the fixed settlements of the Rappahannocks prior to the arrival of English settlers.
