The Legend of Pamunkey Ridge Secrets/Treasures


This is a make-believe legend based on some facts which the Powhatan Native American Culture.

(It is suggested to read this Legend to the group prior to working on a Rocker)

Many moons ago, there lived a young Indian girl named Tuckahoe. She was a member of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe. Her mother was the leader of the tribe and Tuckahoe was her oldest daughter. They made their home on the ridge above the great Pamunkey River. Tuckey, as all her friends called her, loved the fall-of-the-leaves season the very best. She was allowed to run and play among the trees of the forest. It was also her favorite time of year because she could search for the treasures of Pamunkey Ridge her old grandmother had taught her. During the long cold nights of cohonks (winter), her grandmother would tell her how special the ridge they lived on was because of the treasures contained there. Her grandmother called them the Treasures of Pamunkey Ridge. She said they made her life, and the lives of each member of the tribe, better. Every time Tuckey asked what the treasures were, or where they were, her grandmother would only smile and tell Tuckey when the time was right, she would find the treasures one at a time and then it would be her job to guard the treasures. She would tease Tuckey by saying things like they are right before your eyes, you only need to open them to see the treasures. Tuckey did not understand; she always had her eyes open, but she could not see the treasures. As the daughter of the leader, Tuckey had responsibilities; but as soon as she had completed them, she was off into the woods looking high and low for the treasures. Some days she would have to help the women with the making of the clay pots or weaving of the baskets, other days she would have to tend the younger children and school them in the ways of her people. Her favorite days were when her friends from other villages would visit and they would engage in games of fitness and strength. She did not even mind not being able to look for the treasures on those days In Tuckeys 8th year she discovered the first treasure. Her grandmother was correct, it was right in font of her eyes. She was so excited that she made a symbol of the treasure and buried it in a special spot on the ridge so she would never forget the special treasure. Over her time at Pamunkey Ridge, Tuckey discovered the treasures just like her grandmother said. Every time she did, Tuckey made a special symbol of the treasure and buried it on the ridge. As the guardian of the treasures, she put a scroll with each symbol asking the finder of the treasure to guard the treasure. Girl Scouts who visit Pamunkey Ridge may discover Tuckeys treasures and become the guardians of The Treasures of Pamunkey Ridge.

Tuckahoes Treasures
A young Indian girl named Tuckahoe made her home on the ridge above the Great Pamunkey River. She was allowed to run and play in the woods among the trees of the forest. In her spare time, Tuckey would search for the treasures of Pamunkey Ridge her old grandmother had taught her. Her grandmother told her about how special her home in the woods on the ridge was because of the treasures contained there. Grandmother called them the Treasures of Pamunkey Ridge. Tuckey had responsibilities with her tribe, but as soon as she had completed them she was off into the woods looking high and low for what her grandmother had told her about. In Tuckeys 8th year she discovered her first treasure. She was so excited that she made a symbol of it and walked through the woods to the ridge where she buried it, so she would never forget how special it was. Over the years Tuckey discovered the other treasures just like her grandmother said. Each time she made a special symbol of the treasure and buried it on the Pamunkey Ridge.

Item colorful M&Ms pretzel thins and marshmallows Chex Cereal nuts Cheerios popcorn Goldfish crackers Chocolate Chips Kix Cereal raisins What is spoken Girl Scouts come in all colors, from cities and towns, Every Girl Scouts a sister no matter what she looks like or how she sounds. Some of us are tall, and some of us are small. When we get together, size doesn't matter at all With our words and our actions, we show that we care, We try to do our best to be fair and square Sometimes we act a little nuts, we love to joke and play. We'd love to put a Girl Scout smile into everyone's day When we get together, we make circles so round. Its our never ending friendships to which we are bound. When were planning and working, we just dont stop, We keep ourselves busy; all around we will pop We respect all Gods creatures, if theyre big or theyre small, The earth is our home, and there is room here for all It was 1912 when Juliette Low started us off, And like the girls back then, were just chips off the old block We get a kick out of learning and doing new things, and a kick out of helping others, and spending time with friends When we were Daisies, we were fresh, new and rare, but now were ___________ and have experience to share. Added together, the number of years our girls have spent in Girl Scouting comes to ___. So for all the years weve spent in Girl Scouting, I am adding
