The Lumbee tribe a de-facto member of the Powhatan Confederacy will recieve federal recognition this year, six Powhatan tribes in Virginia will also be recognized. The leader of the confederation is a federally undeniable Indian entity called the Powhatan-Toney Tribe (Powhatan Tribe). The tribe descended from tri-racial ancestors of African, European and Indian blood and trace two explicit tribal bloodlines that included slavery back to 1600. Excepting federal displacement the Natives have live in the same area for 200 years. The Powhatan-Toney tribal burial ground is located next to the Gowan sacred burial ground, the Gowan or Goins surname is a recognized Lumbee surname and provide further evidence that the Lumbee (Croatan) tribe is historically associated with the mighty Powhatan Confederacy. The Powhatan alliance In Virginia and North Carolina played a vital role in the election of President Obama. This group of Native American descendants allied nationwide with black and white Americans Indians that claim a Powhatan and Cherokee blood line is a political force that can no longer be ignored by recognition discrimination...

First off, I'll say I harbor NO resentment toward Native Americans or any other group. I know and have served with many of them (Cherokees, Apaches, Navajo, and others) and I count them as friends. Universally, they show nothing but contempt for the Lumbees and won't even consider them members of the same race.Lumbees are well known in this area for grand theft auto, rampant drug offenses to include manufacture and distribution, prostitution, and a whole host of other nastiness. Well known for stabbing you in the back (literaly). Everyone descended from somewhere. Who cares? Their bloodlines (if there really are any) are so diluted and inbred (among them they seem to share only about 3 last names) and the fact that there is no evidence that this "tribe" has spoken anything but English (more like their own version of ebonics) would cause anyone of average or better inteligence to question this status they seek, which they obviously seek in order to gain monetary advantage in various government programs. No wonder they were instrumental in getting Obama elected (is he a Lumbee too?). Sad thing that they aren't getting the "federal recognition" that they truly deserve. BTW, if my son of Euro descent marries a Cherokee and one of their offspring marries a black, can the descendents of that union start a tribe?

FYI,I was quoting my friends who are Native Americans. And considering your numbers, your "people" account for a disproportionate amount of the nastiness in my community. BTW, where exactly is your community? If it's in Lumberton I wish you all would stay there instead of coming to Raeford and Fayetteville (which has problems aplenty even without you mutants) Other than forming your own race (thru legislation, inbreeding and crossbreeding), what exactly have your people accomplished? BTW, don't forget the level of advancement of the indigenous peoples of this continent before Europeans arrived.

Sure, chief. Save that energy for running from the police next time you steal something. Be careful, make sure your equipment's set up right, hate to see you blow up your trailer next time you are "cooking".

WE should all just get along...I mean its not like you can pick us up and move us.... I think its petty 2 me!! It's probably obvious that you are white...but if you knew your history, then you would know that your people were the ones who brought the filth to us anyway!! SO next time you want 2 try and put us down...YOU JUST MIGHT WANT 2 GET YOUR INFO STRAIGHT FIRST and then try and say something about us Lumbee ppl.!!! oooo and get this ***its intelligence*** not inteligence

Hey,loser, according to the first clown that posted on here you "people" have white and black blood (but I guess its more convenient not to mention that). Losers wallowing in self doubt often begin a defensive statement with "at least we". Anyhoo, who cares? Why aren't you somewhere with your life already? Why can't individuals stand on their own? Its not like you "people" didn't have a head start. The other one on here before said you "people" have been around in this country a lot longer than any of my ancestors. Hell, your's were probably launching arrows at mine as they were getting off the ship.No, we can't pick you up and move you, yes we are stuck with you. I am not "worried" about the lumbee "people". "Worry" implies that I actually care about them as a people. I just see them as a self-serving breed of liability. And yes, I misspell an occassional word, so I must be stupid, right? Maybe your ancestors (the indian ones) should have fought harder.

I didn't know being half black and half white makes you Indian. My husband's grandmother was Cherokee, his grandfather white{Irish, and German}. Does that make him Indian.

"whatever" aka "sundrop rules" aka "hmmmm":
only two bit trolls w/nothing to do but spread malicious lies on a computer all day would be sooooooooooooooo overwhelmed with concern about a community. i know you wait w/baited breath, but, i'm sorry, we will not open a cigarette outlet just so your unemployed welfare carcass who sits on a computer all day can be gainfully employed. please stop asking, ok? thanks. anyhoo,(to borrow your juvenile terminology) you reek of pathetic self-indulgent hate-mongering and any non-indian (w/indian friends as you so proudly stated) who would respond with post #12 is a bonafide liar. sit behind your screen, eat your debbie cakes and revel all you want in your little circus sideshow. you're a joke that no one takes seriously. in the meantime, i have a few IT calls to make.
