The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) will receive a grant of $150,000 from energy company, Dominion Resources to build the Commonwealth’s only online historical and cultural archive about Virginia’s Indian communities.

The grant matches an additional award from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation of $75,000. Virginia Indian Heritage Online will be a collaborative project between two programs at the VFH—the Virginia Indian Heritage Program and Encyclopedia Virginia. It will create a comprehensive record of Virginia Indian history, interpreted and delivered, which anyone can access at any time.
