Rappahannock Tribe Reacquires Ancestral Land

The Rappahannock Tribe takes ownership of more than 460 acres of ancestral homeland along the river that bears its name. According to 13 News Now the acquisition returns a section of Rappahannock River frontage known as Fones Cliffs which the tribe was driven away from by English settlers more than 350 years ago. Fones Cliffs is a major East Coast nesting place for bald eagles, considered sacred in Rappahannock culture.
