These peculiar and interesting people have been the subject of much historical research during the last half century.The anthropologist John R. Swanton of the Smithsonian Institution tried to identify the origin of the ethnic group known as Croatan Indians since the late 19th century. Swanton posited that the multi-racial people were the descendants of Siouan-speaking peoples, of which the most prominent in the area were the Cheraw and Keyauwee.

Some of his theories have been superseded by more recent evidence.This ethnic group now identifies as the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina and has state recognition.The Lumbee oral tradition says that they developed from Native American descendants, including refugees of other tribes, such as Tuscarora.

They emerged as a people in the early 19th century through a process of ethnogenesis.About the author:Angus Wilton McLean (April 20, 1870 – June 21, 1935) was a lawyer and banker who was the 56th Governor of the U.S. state of North Carolina from 1925 to 1929.
