The epilogue closes the volume by considering ways that contemporary Native communities in the region have assumed an activist role and begun to reclaim a greater part in representations of their pasts. Virginia and Maryland tribes have achieved state recognition, partnered with federal and state agencies, reburied ancestors, created indigenous archaeology programs, and prevented the destruction of traditional cultural properties by residential development and dam construction. For today’s Native communities in the Chesapeake, the deep history of Tsenacomacoh represents a powerful basis for reaffirming a place on the landscape.
