The census is a requirement by the Federal government that is completed once every ten years.  It acquires information on our people and other groups of people and the data from the Census impacts our communities, counties, and state as a whole..


  At this time the self-response numbers for our tribal territory, Robeson, Scotland, Hoke, and Cumberland counties is at an average of 53.8% with the lowest rate being Robeson at 47.3%.  

Time is winding down for the completion of the 2020 Census and the last day to do so is September 30th.

In order to increase the response rate for the Census, we have developed a plan to assist our members with responding to the census.  You may receive a phone call from staff inquiring about the Census.  If not, staff will be able to assist you in completing your Census online.  It only takes a few minutes of your time to complete.  If you do not receive a phone call and would like assistance, please call 1-833-684-0592


  It only takes a few minutes to complete.  Use the link provided to complete your Census today.  We depend on you!
