Celebrating the State’s Indian Heritage

Record #:
Indians were the original Tar Heels, for their roots in North Carolina go back hundreds of years before the territory was claimed by European settlers. In recognition of that history, Governor James B. Hunt, Jr. has proclaimed September 20-26 as Indian Heritage Week in North Carolina. From the Cherokee Reservation in the west to the Waccamaw-Siouan tribal area in the southeast section of the state, statewide observances will celebrate the history and contributions of North Carolina Indians with various events and festivities.
