WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA), released the following statement on the passing of Gene W. Adkins, Chief of the Chickahominy Indian Eastern Division:

“I’m very sad to learn Chief Adkins of the Chickahominy Indian Eastern Division passed away this weekend. I had the privilege of working with Chief Adkins for many years to secure federal recognition for the Chickahominy, and I’m glad he lived to see his and five other tribes win that battle for justice and respect earlier this year. My heart is with Chief Adkins’ family and the Chickahominy people during this tough time.”
