Chico asked Virginia, "Winono-ska, will you ride in my canoe to Roanoke Island?"
Virginia Dare said yes, she would. Chico gave her the magic beads and when she put them on she changed into a white deer!
For a long time the people on Roanoke Island saw this white deer. The young Indian man Wanchese decided he would kill the white deer.
"Oh no!" said Chico. "I must save Winono-ska!"
So he went to the spirit of the water, and the spirit told him how to make a magic arrow from a hammerhead shark's tooth and three mussel pearls. He fixed them on a wood stick shaft and wrapped a heron feather.
Chico went to Roanoke, but Wanchese went too. They looked for the white deer. Both Indians shot arrows at the same time! Chico's arrow hit first, and the white deer changed into Virginia Dare. But Wanchese's arrow hit her just a second later, and killed her.
Chico was very upset and he took his magic arrow and he stuck it in the magic water. From the wood grew a grape vine, and it became the great Mother Vine of North Carolina.
People say that you can still see the ghost of the white deer on Roanoke Island.
