North Carolina Indians Before the English
Long before the English ever arrived at Roanoke in 1584, the Indian peoples of NC had ancient, sophisticated societies expertly adapted to the land. This program examines NC Indian societies and cultures, particularly those living in the eastern part of the state before the English arrived at Roanoke. Topics discussed include pre-Columbian history of NC, the roles of Indian men and women, how they lived, their societies and economics. Dr. David LaVere illustrates the program with John White’s 1586 images of North Carolinian Indians.
