We believe first and foremost, that North Carolina is the greatest place on the on the face of the earth. We know that we don’t have the tallest mountains, the deepest canyons or the biggest waves, but our mountains and beaches are one of a kind. We are not pretentious nor do we pretend to be something we are not. We are who we are – unique, diverse, liberated, and individualistic. This is represented best by the state motto on the great seal of North Carolina - Esse Quam Videri - "to be, rather than to seem." 

Nor Cak represents a tribe, a collective, and a community of free-spirited individuals creating their own identity and forging their own path in life but who are connected through the deep imprint that North Carolina leaves on all of us. When you have lived in - and loved - North Carolina and the amazing places and people that make this state what it is, it becomes part of who you are - part of your soul.
