Catawba Population Dynamics During the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries


Abstract:
Ethnographic documents suggest that the total population of the Catawba Indians declined from 1700 to 1850 but then increased again over the next one hundred years. Sources reveal that while European-introduced diseases were among determinants of Catawba population change, emigration and other factors may have been significant.
