We Still Believe

Thank you to Hoke County High School and Adrian Kyle Locklear for inviting the Lumbee Tribe Culture

Thank you to Hoke County High School and Adrian Kyle Locklear for inviting the Lumbee Tribe Culture Team to the Native American Heritage Month Celebration!


Our team showcased Lumbee Culture by providing a brief history of the tribe, which included the migration of the Lumbee People, the many languages that were spoken within the tribe, as well as the importance of the conch shell. The conch shell was blew to call meetings to order.


The team also played a flute song. It was said that before someone began to play the flute, they were taught how to make one. The player then would write their own songs, as there were no written traditional songs. To conclude the program and engage the students, they were invited to participate in a round dance that serves as a welcoming dance.


Little Snow Bird spoke about Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW). ‘Age does not matter,’ said Little Snow Bird, 'when Indigenous women are murdered and missing.'
