Abstract:
According to the legend of the white doe, survivors of the Lost Colony took refuge among friendly Indians. The legend says two Indians were in love with Virginia Dare, the first European child born in the New World. One, named Chico, transformed her into a white doe. The other, Okisko, learned that if he shot her with an arrow dipped in a Roanoke Island spring, he could change her back into Virginia. During Okisko's efforts, Virginia was killed, but Okisko pleaded with the Great Spirit to save her. She was again transformed into a white doe, which still roams the Roanoke woods. Periodically, sightings of the white doe are reported, the most recent of which was in 1981.
