Thank you to everyone that attended the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina’s Community Meeting hosted by Chairman Lowery and Triangle Native American Society
Thank you to everyone that attended the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina’s Community Meeting hosted by Lumbee Tribal Chairman John L. Lowery and Triangle Native American Society at the Junior League Community Center. The Lumbee Tribe's Administration and Tribal Chairman provided key information regarding the Cultural Center, program process improvements, the creation of the Agriculture & Natural Resources and Health & Human Services Departments, COVID Funds, as well as services and programs that are available to out-of-service area tribal members.
Chairman Lowery illustrated the Lumbee Tribe’s path moving forward by highlighting our internal and external growth. He discussed the Cultural Center’s renovations, which included steps and a shelter that were added to the pool, the new Marketplace building located at the powwow grounds, as well as the updated playground. The Agriculture & Natural Resources (ANR) Department is a relatively new department that focuses on our farmers and the crops. The Health & Human Services Department assists those in need of heating and cooling assistance, peer support, medicated assisted treatment, as well as those that have experienced domestic violence. The Chairman also highlighted the current and future housing developments located throughout our tribal territory.
Tribal members living outside the service area(s) are able to apply for youth scholarships, student housing vouchers, down payment assistance, COVID Pandemic relief, as well as Veteran Services.
