The Tuscarora people are historically from the Great Lakes region near New York state in the US and the province of Ontario in Canada. The name Tuscarora translates into English from the Iroquoian language as “shirt-wearing people.” However, the Tuscarora were one of the first tribes encountered by Europeans settling the New World in the 17th century, but a long way from this historic homeland. When explorers and settlers arrived in the area of Virginia and North Carolina in the 17th century, the Tuscarora were the most populous of the indigenous tribes in the region.

The Tuscarora lived along the Roanoke, Neuse, Tar, and Pamlico Rivers in the region for nearly 200 years, the Tuscarora migrated back to the Great Lakes after the American Revolution.
