The Cheroenhaka Nottoway Tribe held its annual Corn Harvest Powwow this weekend in Courtland, where the tribe is headquartered.
The Cheroenhaka are one of Virginia's state-recognized tribe, but hasn't achieved federal recognition yet. That designation makes certain federal funding and programs available to them.
The tribe operates a nonprofit entity and the powwow is the main fundraiser. This year, the tribe plans to put proceeds toward a cultural center.
