Governor Cooper Orders Flags Lowered Sunday to Honor Principal Chief of the Meherrin Nation, Wayne Mackanear Brown

NC Dept of Communications

As we continue to honor the life of former Representative John David Dingell, Jr., please also join us as we pay tribute to the life and work of Principal Chief of the Meherrin Nation, Wayne Mackanear Brown. Chief Brown served as the Principal Chief until February 7, 2019.

The Meherrin Nation is one of eight state-recognized tribes of American Indians in North Carolina and is located in Ahoskie and surrounding areas. Prior to his appointment as Chief in 2008, Brown served as operations manager and spokesperson for the Virginia Department of Corrections.

Flags should remain at half-staff now through sunset on Sunday, February 10, 2019. Flags are to return to full-staff on February 11, 2019, at sunrise.
