Native Americans: The People and How They Lived.
Potter, Eloise F.; Funderburg, John B.
This large format book with many color illustrations describes native American history on the American continents from the Ice Age to the present, concentrating on Indian history in North Carolina. The book examines living arrangements, objects of daily use, animal husbandry and agriculture, tribal leagues, and architecture. It describes the 28 tribes of Indians known to have lived in North Carolina at the time of European contact, their language groups, and their locations. Because North Carolina Algonquins greeted and befriended the Roanoke colonists, more is known about them than any other Indian tribe living in North Carolina at the time, and their way of life as hunters, fishers, and farmers is described. The main effect of contacts with the Europeans was a drastic population decline caused by disease, disruption of traditional life styles, and displacement. Indians' lives in the Appalachian mountains continue to affect North Carolina in the late 20th century. The book also details the contemporary contributions of native Americans. The book contains a list of Indian-related places to visit in North Carolina, 31 references, and a short directory of Native American Organizations. (DHP)
