"Burgwin-Wright Presents... Outlander in the Cape Fear" explores the history of Colonial North Carolina through its depiction in the book and TV series "Outlander."

On this week's episode, we look at the involvement of American Indian tribes in the Revolutionary War. In the "Outlander" story, characters have long interacted with tribes like the Cherokee and Mohawk, but what is the true history of Indigenous Americans in North Carolina before the war and how involved were they in the war that would give birth to an independent America?

This week's guest is David La Vere, a professor of history at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and author of such books as "The Tuscarora War: Indians, Settlers and the Fight for the Carolina Colonies."

This podcast is produced by Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens, Wilmington's largest and oldest historic site. For more information about the Burgwin-Wright House, visit
