    New Lumbee tribal leaders sworn into office
    Friday, January 16, 2004

    The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina swore in a new chairman and 21 council members on Thursday.

    Chairman Jimmy Goins, who was elected in November, called on accountability and responsibility in tribal government. He said the tribe should be open to all tribal members.

    The tribe is lobbying Congress for full federal recognition. The bill is pending on the Senate floor but hasn't been heard in the House.
