Pamlico Tribe

The Pamlico Indians were a small Algonquian tribe of North Carolina, speakers of a Carolina Algonquian dialect. The Pamlicos no longer exist as a distinct tribe. After colonization the Pamlico people suffered from European disease and warfare, and the survivors merged together with other North Carolina tribes. Most Pamlico descendants live among the Lumbee Indians today. Other people of Pamlico descent live in different communities in North Carolina.
