Lumbee Tribal Chairman John L. Lowery Visits with Congressional Leaders

Lumbee Tribal Chairman John L. Lowery visited with Congressional members last Tuesday through Thursday in Washington DC. During the visit, Chairman Lowery met with Rep. Bruce Westerman, Chair of the Natural Resources Committee, Rep. Harriet Hageman of Wyoming, Rep. Mary Peltola of Alaska, Rep. Jerry Carl of Alabama, Senator Alex Padilla of California, and our local congressional members Rep. David Rouzer, Rep. Dan Bishop, Rep. Richard Hudson and Senator Ted Budd. Chairman Lowery was grateful to have Catawba Chief Brian Harris, Assistant Chief Patricia Leach, and Council Member Connie Wade join him on some of these visits with Congressional leaders. Chairman Lowery and the Lumbee Tribal Council continue to push for the Lumbee Fairness Act, which will overall modify the Lumbee Act of 1956 and provide the Lumbee People with full federal recognition.
