The Native American tribes of Virginia have made their annual tribute to Governor Bob McDonnell.
This tradition dates back to the 17th century. It began in 1677 as part of a treaty between the state and Native American nations.
Since then, the Mattaponi and Pamunkey tribes have presented deer and other gifts to the governor as a tax tribute.
Governor McDonnell's office says this is the oldest continuing nation-to-nation ceremony in the United States.
