Lark, Thomas. “Lumbees hope for business profits.” Robesonian Monday, 21 May 2001.
The Lumbee Tribal Council voted to establish the Lumbee Nation Development Corporation, a for-profit business which the council hopes will compete successfully for government set-asides for tribally-owned businesses. The council also believes this corporation will be aided by Robeson County's designation as a HUB (Historically Underutilized Business) Zone. At the June Tribal Council meeting, the council will begin determining what types of businesses the new corporation will target. One idea under consideration is a small construction company which acts as a protege of a larger construction company.
