Trade Mark Certificates
The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina has received its "original Certificates of Registration issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office" that registers the Tribal Seal. The Tribe's "mark was federally registered on the Principal Register on January 31, 2017, in association with the goods and services listed on the Certificates." As a result of receiving this Certificate, the Tribe "will be able to use the statutory notice of registration with its registered mark." Copies of the Certificates will be listed on the History & Culture page of the Tribe's web site under the "Tribal Seal" section. This section also displays, for your review, a copy of the Tribal Ordinance that was adopted and passed by the Lumbee Tribal Council which gives a description of the Seal, Official Dies of the Seal, and Limitations on the Use of Facsimiles, Reproductions, and Impressions.
