    I am a BSA Life Scout of Troop 562 currently working on an Eagle Scout Project
    for the Chickahominy Indians Eastern Division(CIED) of New Kent. The project
    involves the installation of a flag pole which will fly both the American flag
    and the CIED flag inside a circular stone garden with two benches, stepping
    stones, and a large monument stone with a bronze plaque inscription in front of
    their tribal center in Providence Forge. I have learned while working on my project that Virginia Tribes are not Federally recognized. I am supporting this Bill and S.379 so they can obtain Federal Recognition. I would really like to be able to put on their plaque that the CIED was Federally recognized in 2011 by the 112th Congress.

    Sincerely,
    Benjamin Jumper

    I would like to see this Bill, H.R.783, become approved by the Senate. The six tribes in Virginia listed in this Senate Bill deserve Federal Recognition. The Chickahominy tribes provided food for the initial settlers to survive their first winter in America at Jamestown. They have played a truly important role in American history and are still part of the American society today. Please make approval of this Bill happen this year by supporting H.R.783.
