Native American Heritage Month
The Lumbee are the present-day descendants of the Cheraw Tribe and have continuously existed in and around
Robeson County since the early part of the eighteenth century. In 1885, the tribe was recognized as Indian by
the State of North Carolina. The tribe has sought full federal recognition from the United States Government
since 1888. In 1956, Congress passed the Lumbee Act, which recognized the tribe as Indian. However, the Act
withheld the full benefits of federal recognition from the tribe. Efforts are currently underway to pass federal
legislation that grants full recognition to the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. The SGA will have a table set
up in Dempsey Student Center with information regarding Native American Heritage Month during the month
of November. If you would like more information regarding the Lumbee tribe check out:
