Big Day Out-A Big Success.

The pictures speak for themselves. A large crowd turned out for the Virginia Indians and their cultural presentation. Wayne Adkins' informative commentary of the drum and the dancers' performances held the attentive crowd for over 90 minutes. The weather was sunny and pleasant with no humidity! A perfect day. Many in attendanced stayed to ask questions and to take photographs. The Big Day out was a big success.

Dear Liz,

Please pass this on to everyone for us -- thanks!

The weather looks beautiful and we're so glad things are going well there. We can't wait for y'all to get home, but hope you're having a blast!

Everything is going GREAT here, so don't worry a thing about us!! We're holding down the Amherst Co. fort for you just fine. Can't wait to hear all about the trip. Everyone is in our thoughts and prayers -- come home safely!!

Love,

Kasey and Rhy

To my grandma(brenda), my aunt(darlene), my cousin(ashton), and my husband-seth: this is your chance to show the world who we are. We were here first, we had some troubles, but we're still here now, and we always will be! I know you're representing so keep it up!

Liz, thank you so much for the pictures of the Big Day Out event. What a wonderful way to educate the English on our Virginia Indians. It looks like it was a huge success. We are proud of what the Native Americans are doing and can't wait to hear more when you all return home.

Liz,
I can't thank you enough for taking the time and efforts to put this blog together. I was very happy to see my Mother, Mildred Moore, obviously having a good time and feeling well. We are all very proud of our tribal communities for coming together for this historic event. I would like to let the younger girls know that they are doing a great job representing the people and we look forward to hearing their stories when they return.
Danielle is looking really sharp in that buckskin!!!
Much love to my Mother and all.
