Abstract:
There is still uncertainty about many of the tribal origins of many of the Native American groups in North Carolina. However, recent archaeological work near the Occaneechi village on the banks of the Eno River near Hillsborough exposed the community as descendants of the Saponi and Occaneechi, thought to have been completely gone years ago.

Abstract:
Although few early written accounts of Indians in the Piedmont region of North Carolina exist, there are traces of the native populations that have been left behind. The Saponi, Tutelo, and especially the Catawba were strong tribes in the Piedmont region, as seen through relics and remains such as stone implements, pottery, arrows, and even graves.
