Turkey feathers, Powhatan Indian Village, Jamestown Settlement, Virginia, USA.
Turkey feathers, useful for making arrow tails, are displayed in a reed-walled house at Powhatan Indian Village at Jamestown Settlement, Virginia, USA. Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas, was founded as James Fort in 1607 within an area controlled by the Paspahegh tribe, which was part of the Powhatan Confederacy of tribes, Tsenacommacah, comprised of about 14,000 native people ruled by Wahunsonacock (sometimes called Powhatan). "Jamestown Settlement" is the Commonwealth of Virginia's portion of the historical sites and museums at Jamestown. Created as part of the 350th anniversary celebration in 1957 as Jamestown Festival Park, Jamestown Settlement is adjacent to the complementary "Historic Jamestowne" museum (which is on Jamestown Island, is the actual historic and archaeological site where the first settlers lived, and is run by the National Park Service and Preservation Virginia).Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
