Hunt, Cynthia L. “Federal Recognition Committee formation off to a successful beginning.” Carolina Indian Voice 18 March 1999: 1.


On March 11, during the annual Indian Unity Conference, a meeting was held in which co-chairpersons Bruce Jones and Leon Jacobs heard input from tribal members on the formation of a Federal Recognition Committee.  Cynthia L. Hunt, the tribe's legal representative through the Indian Law Unit of Lumbee River Legal Services, explained at the meeting that Judge Howard Manning's decision in a recent lawsuit brought against LRDA by the Tribal Council reaffirmed LRDA's right to form the committee.  Discussion focused on how the committee would be established and the strategy it might follow in pursuing federal recognition.
