Watch new video: Beloved Woman
While the Cherokee fight to protect their homelands, Virginians and the British compete for Indian allies. Torn between the need for trade and preservation of their lands, their hunting grounds and their way of life, Cherokee headman Attakullakulla and his niece, Nanyehi, come to Williamsburg to broker a peace with Patrick Henry, the governor of the fledgling Virginia Commonwealth.
Guest artists Wes Studi and Irene Bedard led an ensemble all-Native cast for the special presentation, “The Beloved Woman” Saturday, July 21.
