Different groups have added massive amounts of heritage to the Outer Banks over the years. Colonists, pirates and Native American tribes are a few of the groups to season the Outer Banks with their culture throughout history. Although the Native American lifestyle has blended with other cultures and influences in the grand melting pot of American culture, a taste of their historic civilization can still be found today in the Outer Banks. If you’re an art aficionado or just really love artifacts, you can explore the Roanoke Heritage Art Gallery and Military Museum and the Frisco Native American and Natural History Center where you can examine native pottery, weaponry, jewelry, woven baskets and even a canoe.
