Today, Lumbee Tribal Chairman John Lowery met with North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper in a government to government discussion on issues that impact the Lumbee People.

Chairman Lowery said, “I am thankful for this time with Governor Cooper. The Governor and I were able to spend this time not only discussing issues that impact the Lumbee, but all tribes across the state.”
