Abstract:
Education for the state's Native Americans has come a long way since the Coharie Indians in Sampson County began a subscription school in 1859. Native Americans started schools in other counties, including the High Plains Indian School in Person County. Schools developed in the era of segregation, and it was not until 1954 that the era began to end. Programs to develop Native American teachers began in the 1920s at Pembroke State University. The state opened the East Carolina Indian School in 1942 in Sampson and Harnett Counties to help Native Americans gain a full high school education.
