Annotation: 

Brief mention. Hoefel quotes from Ella Deloria's letters to her mentor, anthropologist Franz Boas, during the time she worked with the Lumbee to write and stage the pageant about their origins and history, “Life Story of a People.” Her letters discuss the tests conducted by Dr. Carl Seltzer; the Lumbee lack of unique folklore, traditions, and language, and what might be used instead in the pageant; speculations about the tribe's origins; distorted views of the Lumbee by the local newspaper; Lumbee relations with Whites and Blacks; and the Long House movement.
