“A lot of folks don’t realize that Indians still exist in their ancestral homelands east of the Mississippi. That’s really the product of an educational system that essentially taught a version of history that excluded who we are. There was a method to that madness — it didn’t happen accidentally. It happened because those folks who approved textbooks and the curriculum of the schools told it their way. The fact that people in [Virginia] didn’t realize we existed wasn’t happenstance. It was all part of a systematic process to disallow American Indians’ existence.” —Stephen Adkins, Chickahominy
