President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate
Full Federal Recognition for the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina
Vote for Full Federal Recognition of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina by supporting the Lumbee Recognition Act passed by the Senate Indian Affairs Committee.
Why is this important?
The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina was given full state recognition in 1885 and in 1956 by the United States Congress, but Congress withheld the full benefits of federal recognition from the tribe. Congress can correct this injustice by bringing the Lumbee Recognition Act which passed out of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee to the floor for a full vote and passage by the Senate and the House of Representatives. We are calling on the United States Congress to correct this injustice and bring closure to the 125 year pursuit of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina for Full Federal Recognition.
