The Chowanoke (Choanoac)  Indians are an Algonquin Tribe that has resided in the Gates County, NC area for over 800 years and continue to do so today. Choanoac means "People of the South".  Their original language is an Algonquin dialect and in many ways similar to the Shawnee which has the same meaning.
