Captain John Smith's Adventures on the James
— www.johnsmithtrail.org —The Arrohateck Indians lived along the James River north of the Appomattox. They met Smith and his comrades on their initial journey up the James, paddling out to meet the English on a small island. "In the midway staying to refresh our selves in [a] little Ile," wrote Smith, "foure or five savages came unto us which described unto us the course of the River, and after in our journey, they often met us, trading with us for such provision as wee had."
