Knick, Stanley. “Along the Robeson Trail (column).” Carolina Indian Voice 3 December 1998:3.
Discusses the issues of sovereignty, or total political independence from the United States. Recent U.S. policy has been to consider federally recognized tribes as sovereign, although tribes have been allowed to exercise their sovereignty only when it doesn't conflict with the interests of government or big business. Knick discusses what true sovereignty would mean for the Lumbee (if federally recognized) and for already federally recognized tribes.
