Meet Marilyn (pictured). She is the oldest Queen Chief of her tribe known as the Roanoke-Hatteras Indian Tribe. Also known as "The lost Tribe," her ancestors had land confirmed to them in 1759. The original 200 acres were located near present day Outer Banks. After the demise of tribal lands, there still remain individual Indians and family groups in North Carolina. The Roanoke-Hatteras Indians have occupied this area since pre European contact, until present day.
