In the Scolding Houses: Indians and the Law in Eastern North Carolina

Record #:
This article examines the use of the colonial North Carolina legal system by local Indian tribes before 1760. The tribes were usually not very successful in legal disputes, with the more powerful Tuscarora tribe having the most success. The smaller tribes more often had to rely upon the goodwill of the English colonists to find satisfactory outcomes with regards to legal matters.
