Abstract: In the book, The Lumbee Indians: An American Struggle, author Malinda Maynor Lowery introduces readers to some of the significant events and people who have shaped the history of the Lumbee Indian tribe in North Carolina. From their earliest days of existence, Lumbee Indians have endeavored to preserve their distinct culture while striving to achieve the same advantages enjoyed by their white neighbors. Unlike the Cherokee Indians, the Lumbee Indians only have state recognition, but federal recognition has always been an elusive goal. Throughout the pages of the book, specific struggles facing the Lumbee Indian tribe over time are depicted.
