Special Event: National Park Service Campfire Talks: Crafting the Past: Fort Monroe’s Indigenous History Through Pottery & Regalia

July 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Fort Monroe, once a Union Army stronghold, has a much older history that predates the American Civil War. In 1607, English explorers named the land Point Comfort—but its first inhabitants were not English. Who were these people? Join Ranger Ashley Ranalli from Captain John Smith National Historic Trail, along with her colleague Kalen Anderson, of the Nansemond Indian Tribe, to learn about the Native Americans who once occupied Point Comfort.
This Campfire Talk is a special hands-on experience. Rangers will provide information about local historic indigenous culture through the medium of traditional Indian crafts. Visitors will have the option of making pottery, as well as learning a little about the changing nature of Native American regalia. Come join us and take a piece of history home with you!
