The Louisa County Historical Society, in partnership with LAC, is pleased to welcome Dr. Karenne Wood, who will give a lecture exploring two very different stories of Native American Women, Pocahontas and Mary Jemison. Her presentation will also include readings from her poetry. Wood is the Director of Virginia Indian programs at Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. She recently delivered the keynote lecture at a conference in London marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Pocahontas organized by the Institute for Historical Research at the University of London and supported by the Omohundro Institute for Early American History and Culture, The British Library, and The University of Warwick.
