Jacobs mentioned a housing program from HUD, an energy assistance program, youth cultural enrichment programs and the Lumbee Indian Boys & Girls Club that has come to fruition in Pembroke, North Carolina.

He also mentioned that the annual powwow was upcoming, and it celebrates the heritage and culture of the Lumbee tribe that he, along with the other tribal members, are so proud of. Overall, the video was a compilation of brief overviews of all of the state-recognized tribes in North Carolina, with various shots of customs and traditions.
