Chairman John L. Lowery of the Lumbee Tribe announced last week that the N.C. General Assembly has allocated $2 million in funding for the Lumbee Tribal Cultural Center, which will be used to upgrade facilities and expand programming. 

Lowery was joined by state lawmakers Representative Jarrod Lowery and Senator Danny Britt Jr. to announce the funding. 

All three gentlemen highlighted the potential for cultural tourism and economic development in the region that this funding provides. 

“This is going to be a cultural hub for the Lumbee people, but also an economic tourism hub, I think, for the entire county,” remarked Representative Lowery in a video announcing the funding. 

This funding will be used for projects like a revamped amphitheater with stadium seating, the arbor will be completed in full and work will be done on the basketball and volleyball courts. 

By allocating funds to the Lumbee Tribal Cultural Center the state recognizes and reinforces the importance of preserving cultural heritage and promoting tribal identity.
