Neusiok Indians, Neuse Indians, Neuse Tribe. An unclassified tribe, perhaps of Iroquoian stock, found in 1584 occupying the country on the south side of lower Neuse river, within the present Craven and Carteret Counties, North Carolina. They were at war with the more southerly coast tribes. In the later colonial period the Indians of the same region were commonly known as Neuse Indians and had dwindled by the year 1700 to 15 warriors in two towns, Chattooka and Rouconk. They probably disappeared by incorporation with the Tuscarora.
