Native American ancestry
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.
