Along the Robeson Trail (column)

Record Number: 

Knick, Stanley. “Along the Robeson Trail (column).” Carolina Indian Voice 18 March 1999: 6.


Valuable summary of similarities between the Lumbee and other Native American groups: having suffered racial discrimination; use of traditional medicine, such as herbal remedies; traditional arts and crafts; traditional singers and dancers; importance of storytelling in daily life; and a different sense of time (oriented toward a sequence of events and toward the present, rather than focusing on the clock). Concludes that “the Lumbee are a people, a culture, a nation... by their persistence here along the river that bears their ancient name, to me they represent a historic miracle.”
