Native American languages
Native American culture
The Coree Indians were a small tribe of North Carolina.
Their language was poorly attested, but may have been an Algonquian language like Powhatan.
The Corees no longer exist as a distinct tribe. They were devastated by disease and warfare after colonists arrived,
and most of the survivors merged together with the Tuscarora tribe, where most Coree descendents live today.
