About the Authors
  • This book explores the dynamics of the struggle for racial and ethnic identities in the southern United States, focusing on the Lumbee Indians of North Carolina. The book is also a history of American Indian concepts and visions of history, starting with the contemporary period and with the perspectives of the Lumbee Indians, and working backward to the colonial period and to the major groupings of Indian peoples. The book addresses the key question of how differing interpretations of history cause traditionally oppressed peoples to continue their struggle. Lumbee Indian Histories is a part of a larger project, centred at the Max Planck Institut für Geschichte, in Gottingen, Germany, to create new methodological approaches to, and concepts for, an historical anthropology.

    • Considers how native American people see and understand their own history
    • Looks at the Lumbee people's struggle to establish an ethnic identity
    • Written in a lively style, the book offers an extraordinary insight into the history of native Americans
