Tuscarora - Artwork by Raymond Moose.


Tuscarora Pre 1712 - Bronze and Wood


This life size sculpture is an original concept of a chief of the great Tuscarora.  The Tuscarora's were located between the Roanoke and Neuse Rivers in Eastern North Carolina.


A devastating war in 1710 - 1712 drove the Tuscarora out of North Carolina to rejoin their Iroquois brothers in New York state.


The ancient name for Tuscarora is Tis - Skarurea, which means Hemp gatherer.
