In 1983, The North Carolina Commission on Indian Affairs published a 40 page booklet titled North Carolina Indians.  This booklet is now available for free online and can be downloaded in pdf or text format.  Here’s what they had to say about their booklet.

“In response to the many requests for information received from interested persons from across the state, the North Carolina Commission of Indian Affairs has compiled this booklet as a general overview of North Carolina Indians. While this is not intended to be a complete history of the North Carolina Native Americans, it is a good starting point for those wishing to know more about the Indian population, both the past and present. In an attempt to provide specific information, the Commission of Indian Affairs has also included a list of suggested readings and the addresses of Indian organizations within the state which may also be sources of additional information.”

    My grandmother told me the name of our family tribe. I didn’t believe her. Now I see it. It gives me a sense of pride.
