      If I have any point to starting this thread, it's that the media are continuing to push a point about Lumbee recognition that both the Lumbee and the Cherokee say isn't an issue.

      Oh the negative news coverage. Wipe my tears, and get used to it.

      Thank you so very much. I could not have proven my point any better if I had spent all weekend searching this board for examples of such predjudicial attitudes. So predictable. Thanks for not letting me down.

      Now, on to the next issue. :)

        Don't get too self-righteous, Ms. Lum. That goes both ways.

        If my location had been somewhere other than Cherokee or Tahlequah or had a different tribal affiliation, I doubt this accusation would be hurled.
        Fish eyed fool!

          Arvis Boughman's reply

          I know this post is almost 2 years old, but I thought I would speak for myself. I spoke w/ Ms. Lum 91 and her comment concerning everyone not putting full stock in everything I say. In a personal conversation, she stated that she was referring to the belief that I claim to speak the Lumbee language. At no time have I ever said I could speak our historical language. Do I know a few words, can I sing Amazing Grace in it? The answer is yes. But, I don't claim to be a speaker of our language. I would love to see it come back though As for the book HERBAL REMEDIES OF THE LUMBEE INDIANS, I don't think Badmutha ever read it, but if he/she did, it would be evident that it is a book on Lumbee herbal remedies with some notations about how other Native peoples used the same herb. In just about every entry, I make a note of how Lumbee Native healers used specific plants to treat disease. Lumbee healers used over one dozen herbs that no other Native people had found a use for. In short, anyone who thinks this book is a Cherokee book masquering as a Lumbee manuscript, just hasn't read it. Furthermore, on the stomp dance, I talked with three Lumbee elders, Ray Littleturtle, Earl Carter, and Pete "Spotted Turtle" Clark, before I made this statement and they all confirmed that we did indeed stomp. I love the people of EBCI but the stomp dance or green corn was a dance that most southeastern people performed. It's not simply a Cherokee invention. So, I ask what did I say that you cannot put stock in?
