In March 1524, the Cape Fear Indians watched Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazano anchor his ship near Ocean Isle Beach and come ashore.
Verrazano spent a few weeks exploring. He found the local Native Americans to be friendly. He wrote in his diary, “The natives go nude except at the private parts where they wear skins of animals; some natives wear garlands of bird feathers.”
Verrazano described the Native Americans as “russet colored and somewhat larger than Europeans, with well-proportioned bodies clothed in animal skins and feathers.”
