A SCULPTURE OF POWHATAN II IN WASHINGTON, DC?
The above enlarged segment of the Powhatan Confederacy map shows Powhatan II's
nation, the second location of the Pamunkey. Although he was descended from this
Algonquian people,  they were also located next to today's southern boundary markers
of Washington, DC. "Pamunkey" means the "place of the Sweat," a sacred location
similar to today's Federally Recognized, Pamunkey Reservation in King William
County, Virginia. This is also America's first reservation. The above tribal location is a
duplicate of the Tidewater's leading "tribe" in his extensive 32-34 nation
Confederation. Also, the fact that Capitol Hill was reportedly his favorite place to
caucus in his northern Tauxenent/Dogue territory, gives credence to our statuary
proposal.
Rationale: One of Powhatan II's minor daughters, Pocahontas, is represented in an
honored location in the Capitol Building's Rotunda in Washington, DC. Her role with the
colonists was seen as
an accommodationist or the "right-thinking Savage," [Kiros Auld:
"Pocahontas:Patron Saint of Colonial Miscegenation?"].

Yet, her father Powhatan II, was the person who decided to
allow the first English colony in
North America to succeed in his territory.
It is time to correct this oversight by erecting
a statue to him in his territory of
Attan Akamik, on today's Capitol Hill, preferably in the
Capitol building.
