Course Description

This course will begin by covering Native North Carolinians before European contact. We will look at the Paleolithic, Archaic, Woodland, and Mississippian cultures. We will focus on their way of life and habits, beliefs, myths and legends. Attention will be given to the key tribes found in North Carolina's Coastal, Piedmont, and Mountain regions as well as the language groups each was a part of. The course will then explore Native North Carolinians after European contact. We will begin with contact made on Roanoke Island, the period of colonization through Indian removal, and the ongoing struggle for Indian sovereignty and cultural identity. The course will close out with an eye on Native North Carolinians today.  Lecture (plus Questions), Facilitated Discussion, Listening to Music or Other Audio, Viewing Videos
