Description

Copper items like these one were made by Virginia Indians with Native ore or obtained through trade exchanges with colonists. Native copper was been valued by Indian people for centuries before the colonists arrived. This is one reason why sheet copper became an important trade item between the two groups in the early seventeenth century. Raw material in sheet form as well as finished objects produced by colonists were obtained by Virginia Indians and were commonly used as ornaments. (Photo enhanced)
