Chowanoke Reservation Fund

$740 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 18 months
Lars Adams  WAUKEGAN, IL

     A very long time ago the last land of the Chowanoke Indians was taken and sold off, leaving tribal descendants without a communal land base for many generations. Today, for the first time in two hundred years, tribal members have repurchased a tract of the original reservation!
     Currently, renovations of this new tract of land is underway! Land clearing, drum arbor construction, parking lots and roads, etc., are currently being built in the initial phase of construction. In the future, an on-site museum, historic village, Pow Wow grounds, trails, camping and tribal employment opportunities will take place. Please  take this opportunity to donate to this historic effort!

  Official reservation web site

     This centuries old tract of reservation land was privately purchased by Chowanoke decendants to retain and preserve an important part of tribal history. And to create a place where tribal members and the community, can enjoy cultural activities and activities on lands considered sacred to the Chowanoke people.  The Chowanoke Reservation lands  are not part of a non-profit as Indians lands and Indian people never were.  These lands will remain sovereign as Indian land should be, and not subjegated to the conditions and stipulations required by such an entity. Due to maintaining this sovereignty, donations for this effort are not tax deductible.

Another thank you to all those who have helped invest in the future of Chowanoke Reservation lands. We have over six hundred dollars so far and it will go a long way to improve the grounds. Please join me this weekend as I present the first check to the Chowanoke Descendants who purchased the land for the first 500 dollars!

Thank you everyone so far who has donated to the Chowanoke Reservation Fund! So far we have raised 300 dollars and that is making the 3000 dollar goal look more and more doable. These funds are building blocks that will help the Chowanoke Indian Tribe invest in the future of their land and their people!

Hello everyone! This is my initial post about a GoFundMe account I have set up to raise money for renovations and construction at the newly acquired Chowanoke Reservation in North Carolina. This is very personal for me because many friends and relatives are tribal members and I hope to be able to contribute to this historic effort!
