Focus on 100 years of Virginia Indian resiliency in a yearlong special exhibition featuring personal and professional photography collections charting this century of change, from the passage and repeal of the Racial Integrity Act of 1924 to state and federal recognition today.

In collaboration with Virginia Indian tribal communities, "FOCUSED" is principally a photographic exhibition drawing from collections held by the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian, as well as images from anthropologist Frank Speck in 1910s to 1930s, the work of award-winning Baltimore Sun photographer A. Aubrey Bodine in the 1940s and 1950s, and portraits by contemporary American Indian photographers. 

Jamestown Settlement is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Residents of James City County, York County and the City of Williamsburg, including William & Mary students, receive free admission.

Made possible with the support of James City County.
