Lumbee Historical Marker Unveiling - Monday, July 1, 2024 | 3 pm - Lumbee Tribe Housing Complex


Join us as we celebrate the dedication of the North Carolina Highway Historical Marker commemorating the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. The marker will be dedicated during a ceremony on Monday, July 1 at 3 p.m., at the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina Housing Complex (6984 NC 711 West, Pembroke, N.C.)


The marker is one of nine being dedicated in 2024 by the N.C. State Historical Marker Program that highlight American Indian culture and history in North Carolina. Historical markers were approved for the Coharie, Haliwa-Saponi, Lumbee, Meherrin, Occaneechi Band of the Saponi, Sappony, and Waccamaw Siouan tribes. The N.C. American Indian Heritage Commission staff worked closely with N.C. tribes to complete applications to be considered for the historical marker program.


The Lumbee Tribe is a strong and resilient people with a proud tradition of education, entrepreneurship and overall excellence.


The Lumbee tribal territory includes Robeson, Hoke, Scotland and Cumberland counties. The majority of tribal members reside in Robeson County. Significant Lumbee communities also thrive in Baltimore, Maryland, and Detroit, Michigan.
