Features Jennifer Revels Baxter, daughter of Lonnie Revels (a Guilford County resident who was elected on November 7 to the Lumbee Tribal Council). Baxter, her husband Scott, and their two children moved to Durham in fall 1999 and then to Chapel Hill in summer, 2000. Baxter uses storytelling, music, dance, and art to educate elementary school children, civic groups, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and higher education audiences about the Lumbee and other Native Americans. Her consulting firm is called Longhouse Productions. She explains, “I am on a mission. Every day, I worry what will define Native Americans, and Lumbees in North Carolina, in 50 or 100 years.... I'm doing what I feel I must to expand understanding, shatter stereotypes and give this community a better appreciation of our culture.”
