Inspired by the first ( documented ) European child born on American Soil ─ Virginia Dare, and the Croatan Indians:“Coharie Slough”
From times of Colonial script ─ troubles, and Indian lore ▒ A people then called “driftwood ,” along southern swamps and shores. Strong enough to fight when pushed─ brave enough to stand. Smart enough to live in peace─for a piece of what was once their land. They fought one side or the other, in every “New World” war─ vested forthwith, the only gift ─ black-water, and the gift to drift no more. Stories are endless, and many. Archives misconstrued… But between the lines of Carolina pines, The Croatan still stand true.
Originally, the Croatan inhabited the present day Island of Hatteras,─ part of the North Carolina Outer-Bank ─ formerly known as Croatoan. More written on the Croatan Tribe, and Virginia Dare, of the lost colony here: ─ Colony Lost From the Start
