Original Inhabitants of Virginia

In 1600, the area of present-day Virginia was home to an amalgam of Native American peoples, including representatives from the Algonkian, Siouan and Iroquoian language groups.

Attracted by the abundance of fish and game, the Powhattan occupied much of the coastal area and interacted with the first white settlers.
