We Still Believe

Thank you to everyone that attended the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina’s District 8 Community Meeting hosted by Councilwoman Kathy Hunt

Thank you to everyone that attended the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina’s District 8 Community Meeting hosted by Councilwoman Kathy Hunt at the Union Chapel Community Baptist Church. Thank you Duane and Leslie Locklear for sharing about the dangers of fentanyl. Fentanyl is the number 1 killer of Lumbees under the age of 45. Fentanyl kills more than car wrecks and suicides. They encouraged everyone to keep a dose of Naloxone on hand at all times because you never know when someone may need it to save a life.


Lumbee Tribal staff provided key information regarding the services and programs offered to Lumbee Tribal members. The Energry Department’s presentation included a discussion about CIP, Crisis Intervention Program. CIP provides individuals that have experienced a sudden crisis with financial assistance. The Energy Department has replaced windows, doors, and HVAC systems in 62 tribal members' homes through their Weatherization Program.


The Enrollment Department is OPEN until 8 pm on Mondays. The Homeownership Program is currently offering tribal members that qualify the opportunity to own and build their first home with 1% interest. 17 homes are anticipated to be built through the homeownership program.


They also discussed the renovations occurring at the Cultural Center (including the 720 chairs that will be placed at the amphitheater) as well as the creation of the Agriculture & Natural Resources (ANR) and Health & Human Services Departments. The ANR Department has written an environmental plan to help keep our tribal members safe.

Tribal members are able to apply for services and programs on our website at https://www.lumbeetribe.com/services or call 910.521.7861.
