Lumbees hope for business profits.

Record Number: 

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.
