Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina (State Tribe)


The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina is a state-recognized tribe of obscure tribal origins numbering approximately 60,000 enrolled members, most of them living in Robeson and the adjacent counties in south-central North Carolina. The Lumbee Tribe was recognized as a Native American tribe by the United States Congress in 1956 under conditions that it agreed to at the time, which did not allow them to have benefits available to other federally recognized tribes.   According to the 2000 United States Census report, 89% of the population of the town of Pembroke, North Carolina, identify as Lumbee; 40% of Robeson County's population identify as Lumbee.

The Lumbee are one of eight state-recognized Native American tribes in North Carolina;[4] they have been recognized by the state since 1885.
