Was this Tuscorora land? Shakori? How do you honor people whose names were erased, folded in with other peoples? How do you recognize the empty spaces in the history, on the map: A village for this people was *here*, is that just because the path didn't take them by other villages elsewhere?
Then there's diaspora -- migrations away, being absorbed by other communities -- and remaining, adapting to the colonialist, being segregated, denied. So descendants debate looking for federal recognition, with long Federally or State recognized communities rejecting claims, advocating against recognition.
I recognize this area was, prior to the land grants of the Lords Proprietor and the claim of the crown of England, home to many peoples. As riverside towns and villages seem to be the way the native people organized, i will identify that it was the Peoples of the Haw river (who may or may not have been Sissipahaw/Saxahapaw) who stewarded this land.
