Lumbee Tribe Housing Department took Elders to Town Creek Indian Mound in Mt. Gilead, NC
This month, the Lumbee Tribe Housing Department took our elders from the Heritage Haven Elders Court to Town Creek Indian Mound in Mt. Gilead, NC. The elders were very inquisitive about how the mounds were built. They were amazed at the way they buried their dead inside the huts that they lived in. After the tour, the elders and staff stopped for lunch. These trips are a part of the Lumbee residential program for our elders. All elders in Tribal Housing are eligible for these trips. The elders are heading to Wilmington to visit Ft. Fisher on their next adventure.
