Life Among the Loon Eaters


Abstract:
In the 1800s on the Shackleford Banks, the families of Diamond City moved to settle Harkers Island and develop and unique community and culture that included the eating of loons. Although that practice is illegal today, Harkers Island residents continue to uphold other cultural eccentricities such as specialized fishing and wild pony corrals.
