My mother was LUMBEE.
WE ARE NOT A DEAD TRIBE WHO JUST WANT CASINO GAMBLING! I am not recognized by the Lumbee People as being in their number but I KNOW WHO I AM! We are a very inclusive CONFEDERATION of Native Americans and those who have chosen over the hundreds of years to throw their lot in with us. I would venture that the LUMBEE PEOPLE have been honoring diversity and putting to practice than most "whites" although there are certainly whites in my own ancestry. Lumbee have a distinct oral tradition (reading and writing aren't exactly Native American innovations.), culture, language and people. The idea of a PURE RACE belongs with Hitler and the Nazis. Lumbee are ONE people of many colors. One Big, Beautiful Native American FAMILY! As such, they should be recognized! I think they would LIKE THEIR RIGHTS as the largest Nation east of the Misssissippi!THEY ARE HISTORICALLY A PEOPLE ALWAYS IDENTIFIED AS NATIVE AMERICAN!
