Documentary and archaeological research have exposed a series of settlements now known to have given rise to the modern Catawba Nation.

Abstract:
This article examined the warfare strategy Catawba employed to keep their cultural identity intact in the midst of English colonization and contact with these settlers. Described by the author as “ethnic soldiers,” this strategy yielded their place as highly valued military auxiliaries. Highlighted were activities that assured this value: assisting in curbing slave rebellions; fighting with British troops during the Revolutionary, Mexican-American, and Civil Wars.
