Get the latest 2022 Uncirculated six-coin set in the Jamul Nation’s popular Native American series that pays tribute to the Tuscarora Nation. As original hunters-gatherers along the eastern rivers of North Carolina, the Tuscarora moved north to New York State, and integrated into the powerful Iroquois Confederacy in the early 1700s. Their name, Tuscarora, translates as Hemp Gatherers.
The common reverse design features a white pine, symbol of the Great Tree of Peace, with an eagle above the tree that sees far and wide to warn of danger. Each obverse shows detailed images honoring the Tuscarora:

- 10¢ – hemp cultivated for medicinal uses and clothing
- 25¢ – Chief Clinton Rickard founded the Indian Defense League and worked for free passage between the U.S.-Canada border for Native Americans
