Today August 22, 1831 the Nat Turner Rebellion happened in Southampton, Virginia. 55 people were murdered. They didn’t spare women or children—even babies were slaughtered. This marked one of the biggest rebellions in North American history.
What most don’t realize about this rebellion is that not all that rebelled was enslaved or “black”—including Nat himself. Nat was half Nottoway indian and half Cherokee. Many of his followers were free people of color and “whites” that were involved in the massacre. The movies and books written on him are all based on false narratives and race-baiting fantasies. The families murdered were not killed just for owning slaves, but for their cruelty and terrible business practices towards everyone in town—including “whites”. There’s also rumors of those families practicing evil rituals. This is why non-melanated and non-enslaved people was involved—enslaved people were the scapegoat. This is why Nat & others involved was skinned and eaten—their skin tanned into leather shoes and purses. Nat’s bible, skull and bones were hidden for almost two hundred years and used in rituals by secret societies. His skull was just returned to his family (enrolled members of the Nottoway tribe) a few years ago.
The descendants of those that skinned Nat still live in Southampton county, Virginia.
The energy down there is messed up. Seeing a dead wild turkey 🦃 on the cotton-littered roadside was a sign from the ancestors to me. The turkey is considered extinct in Virginia, and symbolize that the return of the ancestors are being purposefully suppressed. Tension was still thick in the air that you could cut it with a knife 🔪. White people gave me hateful stares in my indigenous hat and jewelry.
The story goes that when Nat was on the run after the incident that he was hidden for months by the chief of the Nottoway Edith TURNER. He was only found when two sellout slaves saw him in the woods and told on him. His wife and children stayed at the Nottoway reservation and never left. His wife was also indigenous.
The descendants of Nat Turner still live in Southampton county, Virginia.
