Abstract:

There has been very little scholarly work done on the intersection of the histories of Native Indians, African Americans and Europeans. What has been done has been done independently by scholars with fragmented emphasis on the individual histories of each group. No scholar has ever gathered together all the historical data from all sources and locations to write a comprehensive history of the historical interactions of all three groups. Nor has any scholar attempted what this work will do, which is to map over four hundred years of African-American history in one area, which will not only allow students to see the community evolve over the past 400 years, it will also give students and scholars the ability to interact with the maps and photographs. This paper, using historical atlases, maps and manuscripts (colonial records, diaries, and journals) will tell the story of Indian Woods, which is located in eastern North Carolina.
This is an important study for several reasons. First it will for the first time document the fragmentary history of these three groups in eastern North Carolina and how they interacted with one another. Which will give us a clearer understanding of what happened to Native Americans in the Northeastern and Southeastern Woodlands. Second, the project will also introduce new digital technology, which has the potential to allow students of all levels (K-12, undergraduate students, graduate students, and scholars) to examine and interact with history. Finally, this study will is interdisciplinary endeavor involving the research of both the Historians and Archaeologist. Through maps, Native American sites such as villages, burial grounds, trading posts, ceremonial grounds and battle sites will be identified as well as how African slaves and maroons interacted with Native Americans within these spaces. As we explore and understand more about Indian Woods and the creolization that occurred there, we will begin to understand more about what it means to be both American and African American.
This study uses maps, photographs, oral interviews, and archival materials to complete a detailed community history that covers over 400 years of recorded history. This work will serve as a model for how local histories can be written and should offer new historical insights into the relationships between Indians, Blacks, and Whites and how those relationships impact America today.
