Weapemeoc Tribe

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 today.
