Nansemond Indian Nation is a member of the Virginia Tribal Education Consortium (VTEC) focused on youth education. VTEC has developed Partnership Agreements with school districts across the Commonwealth to offer professional development for educators in Native culture, language, and history.


Our Environmental Program is funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Indian Environmental General Assistance Program (GAP) and other funding sources. We are focused on improved water quality and coastal resilience through 3 initiatives: oyster restoration, invasive plant removal, and native plant restoration.¬†Click here to read the Mattanock Town Restoration Plan.
