Chesapeake Indians are nameless and faceless in many history books after Jamestown and the beginning of colonization. But several tribes, like the Pamunkey, continued to survive to the modern day because they were able to successfully adapt for continuation through the centuries. Those adaptations, although ultimately successful in maintaining the Pamunkey traditions and right to their lands, were often painful, as we can see in this video that documents the arachelogical work around the Braffteron, an early 18th century Indian boys school at William and Mary.
