Tribe Bands Together in Unity for Recognition NOW!
The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina recently held a Full Federal Recognition Discussion dinner with community leaders at the Lumberton Holiday Inn. "This event is for us to show our support in federal recognition efforts," said the Lumbee Tribal Chairman Purnell Swett. "We are fortunate to be where we are in the process." "This is not only going to help the Lumbee, but all of Robeson County and its surrounding counties," stated Chairperson of Tribal Council Federal Recognition Committee Sharon Hunt, who is also a Tribal Council Member for Tribal District 2.
