Knick, Stanley. “Along the Robeson Trail (column).” Carolina Indian Voice 14 January 1999:3.
In this installment in a series of essays on the context of the Lumbee people, Knick observes that recognizing similarities between the Lumbee and other tribes may have little impact on the daily lives of Lumbee people. For some, federal recognition may be a matter of little importance. Some Lumbee are profoundly connected to the ways and philosophies of their ancestors; other are not. In sum, the usefulness of an understanding of context and connection depends on one's own point of view.
