At the place George Mason University occupies, we give thanksgivings to the Manahoac, Rappahannock, Pamunkey, Mattaponi, Upper Mattaponi, Chickahominy, Eastern Chickahominy, Nansemond, Monacan, Patawomeck, and Nottaway, past, present, and future, and to the Piscataway tribes who have lived on both sides of the Potomac River from time immemorial.
