This thesis will prove how legends derived from times of oppression in history are used to assert the identity of the oppressed. To emphasize the importance of a legend for one specific group, the victims of oppression, this thesis will present the Lowry War through both perspectives of the parties involved, the Lumbee and the oppressors, the white community of Robeson County. These perspectives appear on an interactive website accompanying this thesis, which can be found at www.henrylowry.com.
