Eno Indians

The Eno Indians were a small tribe of North Carolina, allies of the Catawba Indians. Their language was never recorded, but may have been a Siouan language similar to Catawba. The Enos no longer exist as a distinct tribe. They merged together with their Catawba neighbors in the 18th century. Most Eno descendants still live among the Catawbas today, although like other Carolina Siouan groups, there are probably people of Eno descent among the Lumbee tribe.
