Monk, John. “U.S. bill would give Lumbees the right to sponsor gambling.” Charlotte Observer 9 June 1994: 1A.
The bill for federal recognition that was in Congress as of this article's publication date did not specifically address gambling, but its language would have allowed it. Many Lumbee, as devout Christians, oppose gambling. Over 200 federally recognized tribes in 32 states offer some form of gambling.
