Algonquian Agriculture

Record #:
Europeans exploring 1580s North Carolina were introduced to many new crops by the coastal Algonquian Indians. Lacking domesticated animals either for work or food, these people depended on their agriculture for much of their food. Hunting brought meat to the table. The two crops that interested the English and that later would become important to North Carolina were corn and tobacco.
