Indian chiefs invited to England

Delegation is part of Jamestown 2007.
Mr. Adams and other representatives of Virginia's eight recognized tribes will spend a week touring England and discussing their history and culture as part of the 18-month commemoration of Jamestown, the first permanent English colony in what became the United States.

For England's "Jamestown 2007" organizers, the trip is a chance to revive social and economic links between Virginia and Kent County, where the trip is centered.

For Indians, it's a first step toward healing scars of violence and betrayal formed long ago.

Roughly 60 chiefs and tribal members will make the trip, the first by an official Virginia Indian delegation to England in more than 250 years.
