Title

Governor Robb Thanks Tecumseh

Description

Virginia governor Charles S. "Chuck" Robb shakes hands with Pamunkey chief Tecumseh Deer Foot Cook. Two other men stand and hold a long branch with a deer tied to it, as part of a Thanksgiving tribute at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond. The annual tribute honored the terms of the treaty ending the Third Anglo-Powhatan War (1644–1646). In exchange for loyalty to the Crown, the Pamunkey, Chickahominy, and Mattaponi tribes received military protection from the English. The annual ceremony continues to be observed by the Pamunkey and Mattaponi tribes.
