John Lawson's Indian Town on Hatteras Island, North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
The history of Hatteras Island has been difficult to tell, mainly due to its small populations, remote and isolated geography, and self-reliant people. However, accounts by John Lawson who traveled the area between 1707 and 1709, record a historically significant Hatteras Ind. Town. Lawson attempted to preserve the pieces of culture he encountered, as well as connect them to the loss of the Colony of Roanoke.
