"Indians" of Virginia - The Real First Families of Virginia —
"The first people to live in Virginia were Indians. Thousands of years ago, Alaska and Asia were joined by dry land. This dry land is
called a land bridge. The Indians walked over this land bridge from Asia into Alaska. As years passed, the Indians moved further south. After many years, different
groups of Indians lived in all parts of North and South America. The first Europeans to come to Virginia met Indians. These Indians had already lived in Virginia for
thousands of years." - quote from the web site.
Virginia's First People, Past and Present (WINGAPO) —
European colonists arriving in Virginia may have been greeted with, "Wingapo." Indians have lived in what is now called Virginia for
thousands of years. While we are still learning about the people who inhabited this land, it is clear that Virginia history did not begin in 1607. If you ask any Virginia
Indian, "When did you come to this land?", he or she will tell you, "We have always been here." - quote from the web site.
