Theda Perdue and Christopher Arris Oakley.
In Native Carolinians, Dr. Theda Perdue, Atlanta Distinguished Professor of Southern Culture at UNC-Chapel Hill, discusses the history, life-style, and culture of the native people of the region before the arrival of Europeans. She expands this discussion to include the interaction of the Indians with white settlers during the colonial period. In separate chapters, Perdue chronicles the experiences of the Cherokees and the Lumbees in the 19th and 20th centuries. She concludes this study with a discussion of Native Carolinians today and a detailed timeline of important dates and events in North Carolina Indian history.
For this new edition, Dr. Perdue selected Dr. Christopher A. Oakley, associate professor of history at East Carolina University, to revise her original study. The chapters on the Cherokees, the Lumbees, and Native Carolinians today have been expanded to include important developments in these topics over the past quarter century. A number of new illustrations have been added, and a detailed index now makes the text more accessible.
