Native Americans in North Carolina
In November we celebrate Native American History Month. North Carolina has a very rich and diverse Native American heritage. The influence of Native American culture in the state can be found in the names of cities and towns, foods, folklore and the arts.
We invite you to visit the Government and Heritage Library’s catalog to search for the wide array of books in our collection on the history and culture of North Carolina’s native populations.
Here are a few books to help get you started:

Cherokee Americans: The Eastern Cherokees in the Twentieth Century by John R. Finger
Living Indian Histories: Lumbee and Tuscarora People in North Carolina by Gerald Sider
Lumbee Indian Histories by Gerald Sider
