Tuscarora

The North Carolina History Center in New Bern is hosting "The Tuscarora World and New Bern In Maps."  It's a new, free exhibit of 15 rare maps depicting the North Carolina coastal region and Tuscarora history from 1590 to 1800.  Lee Jenkins visited the History Center and has this audio tour of the exhibit.

How safe is your beach?  This week on the Down East Journal, we speak to the State Recreational Water Quality Program Manager about testing the water at more than 200 locations, from Corolla to Sunset Beach.  And why sometimes, they have to issue a swimming advisory.  Plus, we take an audio tour of a new exhibit in New Bern detailing the history of the Tuscarora Nation with 15 rare maps.  The Down East Journal, Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations.  And Saturday at noon on New and Ideas. 

Native American descendants from New York state and eastern North Carolina honored their ancestors at a recent ceremony in Snow Hill.  We talk about the Battle of Nooherooka fought between settlers and the Tuscarora people in the 1700’s.
