Croatans and Croatians

Postby dpyates » Sat Apr 13, 2019 11:40 pm

It has long been thought the origin of the Croatan Indians of N.C. lay in the "Lost Colony," which supposedly took refuge with a nearby Croatian colony among the Indians. Do Croatan Indians look Croatian. Here's a comparison between C.D. Brewington, the tribal historian of the Croatan Indians, in 1925, and a well-known (and controversial) Croatian Catholic saint, Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac in 1937. What do you think? The Brewingtons were pure Croatan/Lumbee/Cohaire. Stepinac was from Krašić in the Austro-Hungarian Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia, near Zagreb and his family also were Croat on all sides. Read about Stepinac and his trial for treason here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aloysius_Stepinac. C.D. Brewington wrote The Five Civilized Indian Tribes of Eastern North Carolina, now out of print and hard to find. He was an Indian educator and insurance company executive.
