About the Lumbee
In southeastern North Carolina, amongst the pines, swamps, and dark waters of the Lumbee River, is the heart and homeland of the Lumbee People. The ancestors of the Lumbee came together to shelter here hundreds of years ago—survivors of tribal nations from the Algonquian, Iroquoian, and Siouan language families, including the Hatteras, the Tuscarora, and the Cheraw. The Lumbee are a strong People with a dynamic history and promising future.
