Christian Tribe

Posted By Dennis Partridge On In Native American | No Comments

Christanna Indians. A group of Siouan tribes of Virginia, which were collected for a time in the early years of the 18th century at Ft Christanna, on Meherrin river, near the present Gholsonville, Va. Gov. Spotswood settled these tribes there about 1700 in the belief that they would form a barrier on that side against hostile Indians.

The tribes were the Meipontsky, Occaneechi, Saponi, Stegaraki, and Tutelo.
