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