Group Description

This list is for anyone connected to a group of Native Americans that were called Tuckahoe. Other spellings referring to the same Ancient Natives are: Tuckyhoe, Tuckeyhoe, Tockwogh, Tockwhogh, Tockwough, Tockwoughe, etc., considered among the earliest documented people of MD/DC/VA area, originally encompassing a number of states.

This is an ID associated with Cherokee, Lenape, Algonquin, Iroquois, Conestoga, and numerous other Ancient Native American people here before recorded history. Some were referred to as Chickamauga Cherokee, a nomadic people, spanning the Carolinas through New England.

Tuckahoe is the name of stone used to build the Capitol of the United States at DC, originally inhabited by Dogue Indians, probably another spelling variation of Tuckahoe. Numerous places are named Tuckahoe, giving us clues to our ancient family's migration routes. It is a plant called Peltandra Virginica - Tuckahoe, Green Arrow Arum, Arrow Leaf, or Arrowleaf Arum. Bread called Tuckahoe was made from these and other roots as well as corn, etc. It also refers to a favored mushroom of our ancestors, now commonly known as truffles.

Since we are a diverse group, possibly from different backgrounds, we are encouraging people to post family legacy and how Tuckahoe works into their lives here. You can safely post family information, without numerous folks checking in. New members are now monitored with access requiring membership.

This is a place to gather information together on the Tuckahoe, a mixed group now, of multi-ethnic Natives.
