The history of Willie French Lowery, his band, and his impact on the Lumbee Indian community in North Carolina is explored. Lowery’s rock band, Plant and See, became successful in the 1960s and Paradise of Bachelors record label is reissuing their record. Lowery was a Lumbee Indian from Robeson County who struggled with his fame and people’s desire to label him. Later in life, Lowery became a community activist and wrote folk songs about his community.
