The legend of Chicora and the Little People begins long ago in the time known as the Moon of the Turning Leaves. Chicora, a young Lumbee girl, is awakened from her deep sleep by gruff giggling and little hands reaching through the flap of her home lodge. She attempts to tell the villagers of the appearance of the little people and the new corn. How can Chicora convince her tribe?
Watercolour pictures complete the telling of this traditional Lumbee legend of trust and courage.
