Federal Recognition
Bill to recognize Lumbee Tribe introduced again


Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-North Carolina) introduced a bill on Thursday to recognize the Lumbee Tribe.

The Lumbees are subject to a termination-era law that bars their treatment as a federal tribe. The bill would repeal the law and place the tribe on the list of recognized entities.

The Lumbee's main opponent in Congress, former Rep. Charles Taylor (R-North Carolina), was voted out of office last November. Taylor opposed the tribe at the request of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, the only federally recognized tribe in North Carolina.

McIntyre's bill, H.R.65, has 25 co-sponsors. It was referred to the House Resources Committee.
