Lecture: They “Went Native”: Refugees and Runaways Among the Indians, 1580s-1630s

In the early years of English colonization in North America, when the English presence was weak and their lifeline to the home country tenuous or absent, some English people felt it necessary to join the much stronger Indian societies. Some of those people returned to the English settlements later, but others did not. Join Dr. Helen C. Rountree as she discusses this phenomenon, including her belief that the Algonquian-speaking Indians of northeast North Carolina may have absorbed the Roanoke (“Lost Colony”) colonists, as either prisoners, or refugees, or both.
