Along the Robeson Trail (column)

Record Number: 

Knick, Stanley. “Along the Robeson Trail (column).” Carolina Indian Voice 21 January 1999:3.


This installment in a series of columns on the context of the Lumbee makes two major points: (1) Some people believe that not much has been written about the Lumbee; but in fact, the large number and wide variety of studies listed in The Lumbee Indians: an annotated bibliography is evidence of their distinctiveness as an ethnic group; (2) There are several different stories among the Lumbee themselves about the origins of the tribe, which probably means they are the product of the merger of several tribes, just as other cultures such as the Irish, Chinese, and Greeks are products of mergers.
