Evans, W. McKee. “The North Carolina Lumbees: From Assimilation to Revitalization.” Southeastern Indians Since the Removal Era. Ed. Walter L. Williams. Athens: U of Georgia P, 1979. Pp. 49-71.
After the Lowry Gang era, White historians tried to demonstrate that Lumbees are Indians. Lumbees entered an accommodation period. Evans also discusses later developments such as locality leaders; the three-tier status system caused by segregation; Lumbee ethnic consciousness; the work pattern of tobacco production; the Klan routing; and the progressive 1970’s.
