The Land Speaks: The Monacan Nation and Politics of Memory

The Land Speaks: The Monacan Nation and Politics of Memory

This online exhibit was made possible by students in the Virginia Tech ASPECT Spring 2020 graduate course, the Politics of Memory, who researched the long history of the Monacan Indian Nation. 

The Monacan Indian Nation are indigenous people from the greater Piedmont and Blue Ridge, with some of their earliest settlements dating to 1000 A.D. Their history is marked by resilience and their tie to this place. Today, the Monacans need help saving the remains of their historic capitol, Rassawek, located at the confluence of the Rivanna and James Rivers, from development.
