Beaded cap

Beaded cap
Members of the Tuscarora Nation reportedly presented this cap to David Stone when he was governor of North Carolina (1808-1810). Stone's Hope plantation adjoined the Tuscarora reservation in Bertie County. Because of war and white planters moving on to their land, most native Tuscarora in North Carolina moved to New York state between 1715 and 1800. Beadwork has a long tradition in Tuscarora culture.
