This beautiful artist rendition of Henry Berry Lowrie is on one of the walls of a building at the Lumbee Tribe’s Indian Cultural Center, one of the wonderful treasures that remain hidden at the Cultural Center.
With renovations underway, Tribal Chairman Harvey Godwin is hoping to get all the buildings back open so tribal members and others can enjoy the beautiful scenes at the historic Indian site for generations to come. Upcoming volunteer opportunities will be available for those who want to help rebuild the center. Dozens of volunteers have logged countless hours preparing the grounds for this weekend’s powwow, but there is still much work to be done to get the amphitheater and pool back in operation. Chairman Godwin said he hopes to get Strike at the Wind! back up and running over the next couple of years.
Tribal Chairman Harvey Godwin portrayed Henry Berry Lowrie in the outdoor drama for about six years back in the 1980s. There are also plans in the work to upgrade the pool, one of the Cultural Center’s most popular attractions. I will keep you posted about volunteer opportunities.
God bless you all and God bless our Lumbee Indian Cultural Center.
