The Tuscarora People
The Tuscarora Indians originally lived in North Carolina. But in the early 1700's, many Tuscarora were killed or enslaved by the British during the Tuscarora War. Most of the survivors moved to New York to live with their northern relatives, the powerful Iroquois Confederacy. Most Tuscarora Indians today live in New York state or across the border in Ontario, but there are some Tuscarora people still living in the Carolinas.
