“Knowledge tied to the land is so important. When the forest was our primary grocery store, we did not suffer from food insecurities like many people do today.  Hunting, gathering, and gardening sustained our people and grew healthy populations.”

-Victoria Ferguson (Enrolled Citizen of the Monacan Indian Nation and Program Director of Solitude/Fraction at Virginia Tech)
