The article tackles the theme of local identity, viewed in the perspective of migration processes that led to the formation of the local communities of Western and Northern Territories. Analysis focuses on the town of Bialy Bór and the changes of identity that occur on its area. The text sketches the generational differentiation of the character of local identity in the dimension of references to the past of the group and the sense of territorial belonging. Another problem taken up by the author is viewing the ongoing changes through the lens of cultural diversity characteristic for the local community studied, and how the activity of the Ukrainian minority inhabiting the town affected the shape of the local identity of its residents.
