  • Lumbee's Stealing Another Tribal Identity

    Group accuses Lumbee Tribe of stealing heritage
    Thursday, April 15, 2004

    A group calling themselves the Siouan Indians says the Lumbee Tribe is stealing their heritage.

    The Lumbee Tribe claims descent from the historic Cheraw Tribe, a Siouan group. A woman of Siouan ancestry says that claim is wrong but a Lumbee spokesperson said the groups are all related.

    The Lumbee Tribe is seeking federal recognition through Congress. The tribe is currently barred from going through the Bureau of Indian Affairs process due to a unique termination-era law.

        response

        okay i read the article....the siouan and the lumbee are exactly not the same....two different cultures and 2 different languages etc... lumbees are of eastern nation to find proof look at the family tree...the siouan is at the trunk of the tree and nations like mandan, eastern blackfoot (notice i didnt say blackfeet which is part of the sioux tree ...totally different) hidatsa arikara etc... there was a person on eastern blackfoot webstie who posted a pic of the siouan family tree...and i know that the lumbee arent listed on that tree...so i agree the lumbees who are claiming to be of that family tree don't got their fact straight and are stealing in a way...when i find that picture of the tree that was drawn i'll post it unless someone does it before me...

              This subject never ceases to amaze me. FancyStar after all these yrs. this still is your favorite thing to talk about huh? LOL! All I can do is laugh. I never really respond to these threads unless they are positive. I am not into convincing someone something that they have no interest in believing other then what they want to. Blackbear, I know this is one of your favorite subjects too! Good/Bad. Sounds like your becoming an expert on the lumbee tribe. You can take it however you want but, truly--I dont mean it offensively. Just gets under the skin a little. So interesting to see how people think. Go ahead lets continue pondering.....



              Do I sense a little ethnocentricity about to occur???? Hmmm. Im sorry. Continue.....

                  LOL, yes I have so little in my life that this is what I have been spending my every waking momnet thinking of. Yeah between, work,kids,sewing,pow-wows,T-Ball, dance classes,beading and school this is the important issue for me!

                  I thought this was an interesting article because it would impede the recognition that Lumbees are so desperately seeking. Whether I haev anything against the Lumbees or not isn't the point here. Smokin' Ace is always keeping the world uptodate on the Great Lumbee Debate and I was just trying to add what info I have found on the web.

                  Excuse me now while I get back to my life of nothing to do but hold my breath for the Lumbees! LOL

                    I think you've misread what the article is saying. Those persons contesting us are members of our tribe right here in NC (go to the link Blackbear provided for some more clarity on this subject).

                    Lumbees are'nt trying to claim that we are siouan as in Lakota, Nakota, Dakota, etc...

                    Siouan is a very generic term describing the type of language certain tribes spoke, it's merely a linguistic classification, not a particular tribal affiliation.

                    There are two large pockets of Siouan speaking Indians in the Unites States. One is on the Northern plains (those in the tree you looked at) and the other is in the Piedmont region of Va, NC, and SC. Lumbees are predominantly descended from an admixture of tribes in that second pocket, principally the Cheraw and Keyauwee.

                        I'm not sure what you mean.. I'm not trying to become an expert on the Lumbee...but when these opposing groups pop up telling my people we are one and the same and calling themselves tuscarora "nation" then I set out to learn more.

                        I don't have a problem with Lumbees at all other than ya'll get so touchy touchy sometimes LOL... jumping the gun ready to kick *** and not even sure if it was something meant to be offensive..LOL!

                        When I originally posted this article it was because I wanted opinions, and because there are lumbee here and it's something to discuss. Should Lumbee be taboo and exempt from discussion?? I did'nt post it to say.. oh the lumbee are stealing identity shame shame.. I know better than that. I know who these groups are. I've argued with them and debated with them and told them to give it up and be proud they are lumbee.

                        I would'nt say I'm offended by your statement... just confused by it.

                          Apparently it is if you're Cherokee. In fact just attempting to address the issue, even in a civil manner, or even offering critiques of someone who happens to be Lumbee gets you branded a "Hater."

                            I really don't understand the concept of the Lumbee tribe. I was always told that they were not a tribe and they have been fighting for years for Federal Recognition to no avail. I really don't think it's the fact that one is Lumbee or Cherokee, there are some very recognizable Cherokees in Oklahoma as well as North Carolina, however, these different bands that keep coming out with no backing of past, no rolls, no identity of their own.....those are the ones we as native people question. Everyone "thinks" natives have it made, with so called "health care" and thinking we get money and really have it going goo. Therefore, seeing hobbiests and wannabe crystal wearers and whites in pocohontas looking clothes (with those goofy plastic beads on the fringe and trust us....we can also spot fake feathers a mile away)....really turns us off and makes us leary of people who can't claim their heritage. I feel that this is where the problem first began.....This is just my opinion. What do you other natives think???



                            Mussy by birth.....Native by the Grace of God.......

                              the lakota arent part of that siouan tree their part of the sioux tree... i just found out that the lumbees are part Cheraw...yay i know siouan isnt a tribe i wasnt specifying as that...

He introduced it on 28 July 2005. My Choctaw brother has asked me to ask friends, relatives and supporters to e-mail their U.S. Senators...

One thing that did tick me off though was the comment made that land could be put in trust and industries allowed to build their businesses there for tax exemption.......
