Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article summarizes the cultural history of the Tuscarora from the early eighteenth to the mid twentieth century (ca. 1960s). Landy describes the underlying conditions in North Carolina and Virginia, the Tuscarora's original homeland, which led them to migrate to New York State where they sought protection among the Iroquois in the early eighteenth century. However, it was not until 1722 or 1723 that the Tuscarora refugees were formerly adopted into the League of the Iroquois as the sixth nation of the confederacy (p. 519). This document includes data on settlement patterns, population figures, the Tuscarora's role in the American Revolution, missionary influences, land loss, economy, and social organization in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A synonymy and a bibliography list conclude the work.
