S: They're not just scarce positions anybody

can 4e aJ ^ \t\ o4 -- And in this sense I think

there's something very very important to a lot of Indians, and very

very good about the way that they got it. Just one other thing that

I want to talk about, and that making a living for Indiansp,, .1_j),1

Now I think it's important, and perhaps you know. Uh, the Indians

came here, came to Baltimore in the Second World War, and they were

then the defense industry, Baltimore being a major industrial center.

And really, as you go north from uh...Robeson County, it's the first

big industrial center that you're going to hit. And I suspect that's

one of the reasons why so many stopped off in Baltimore and stayed

there. Baltimore uh, really is quite a diversified industrial com-

munity. It uh, was once a port city, a major port, and still is a

major port, but it also has many other things. A big GM plant, a big

Bethlahem plant, it has a lot of small industries, it was well known

for the needle trades. But the big thing that Indians went into

after the Second World War, was something else happening in many

cities throughout the United States. The building boom. There was a

great deal of building going on in Baltimore, and many Indians when

they came there, went into the building trade. Now there really are

two uh, parts of the building trade. There were then, and probably

S: ...still are. There's new construction, and there's the remodel-

ing of old buildings. The unions then controled the new construction.

And the remodeling, the unions in Baltimore didn't bother with.

This was left for the non-union people, and that's where the Indians

went. What this really means is that Lumbee Indians really took much

lower pay w- d r. than the union men were getting

in the new construction. Their pay was considerably less. But it was

still quite good pay. And I sort of feel quite strongly that the

Indians generally in Baltimore really are not at all.atzthe uh.,.

poverty level. They were not three years ago, and they-still are not

now. They're really not, uh, they're far from the unskilled type of

many who are migrants to cities. They're people who really picked up

the building trade skills, and a lot of other skills, and have done

reasonably well in Baltimore. The point is though, even if they're

not at the bottom, they only do moderately well in the city. I want

to say one other thing about the uh, work of the Indians in Baltimore.

One thing that struck me very strongly a few years ago, and has-come

out particularly this summer. A lot of Indians...of the Indians have

joined unions. The unions in recent years have been very accepting

of Indians. And there is an Indian for example, who is the president

of a steel workers local, a Lumbee Indian, president of a steel

workers local...a lot of shop stewards around there. The Indians feel

very strongly about the importance of unions. Now that is a little

different between now and several years ago. A few years ago, if they

2













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...joined, maybe they joined because they had to. They were in

union shops and had to join. Now a lot of them feel quite strongly

about unions. And I this past summer gave them some sort of hypo-

thetical questions. Like: If your boss...say if your union wanted

to go on a strike and for more money, and if the boss were to say

to you..."Don't go out with the union, I'm going to give you more

pay." Would you stay on, or wouldn't you stay on? And almost univ-e

versally among the Indians,I.asked..'neothey-wouldn't stay out. They

felt they needed the union in order to be able to be sure that if

there was a pay raise, they would keep that. They said the boss

after while wouldn't give them the...I think this is one of the im-

portant things that Indians have learned in the city. I can add to

a number of other things, and I'd be glad to respond to questions

about the Indians. Esentially I want to say, in the area of acultur-

ation...or what we call aculturation...I really feel that Indians

have basically madatained their own group. You know essentially the

Indians friends are...the Indians have friends among other Indians.

But it...uh, this is something that Indians are beginning to move

away from in Baltimore. There are friends being picked up in other

areas. But if you're going to talk about the basic friendship net-

works of Indians, you're going to say that most of the Indians

basically have friends among other Indians. Uh, this is what I

would call nh, kind of structural pluralism you have in Baltimore.

I want to point out to you that Baltimore is a very ethnic divided


3













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...towm. Baltimore has all kinds of ethnic groups, Poles and

Italians. Now what do you think the Italians think. The Italian

friends are mostly among other Italians, and the Polish friends

are mostly among other Polish. It is not unusual for the Indians

to be that-way. But I have found the Indians really-muchemerei.e

receptive towards moving out toward people on the outside. So that

I do think they're in a stage of transition now They're uh, feeling

strongly about holding on to being Indian, and yet there is also...

there're many interesting things about people on the outside that

Indians are beginning to find out about. It is hard to predict any

future as far as the Indians are concerned in Baltimore. I do think

they will hold on to their Indianess, but I think there're going to

continue to be all kinds of changes among them. And a number of them

are just going to feel afterwhile...marrying other people...that

maybe they don't want to be Indians And this is something, that if

a strong Indian movement develops over here, it's going to be as

strong, it's going to be felt over there. And this will be one of

the ways in which Indians can really feel strongly unified.

M.C. Thank you very much. Dave do you want to get this out of here?

NEW SPEAKER

S: Maybe one good-thing about coming third, and almost last is maybe I

can get to play the devil's advocate, and uh, and let you squirm

for a minute, and turn to the light side. Went down to Wellington

last summer to make a talk, and I was introduced in a peculiar way.

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: And so I decided maybe I'll uh...change that introduction tonight,

and say I'm in Florida as a demographer, but after being intro-

duced as a Democrat uh, down in Wellington...I just don't want to

be known as a demographer...in those terms. A couple little funny

stories I'd like to tell to get your thought patterns on what we're

trying to do in Robeson County. I know you must have heard numerous

stories and accounts of the little "Johnny Jokes." Johnny comes in

to mommy and daddy to ask various questions. The question thatI-;so

suppose has been used, and befuddled all children at some point in

their lives, is...where do babies come from? And so a couple of

little stories of Johnny then, asking mommy...where do babies come

from? One, Johnny comes tearing in to mommy and says, "Hey momm,

where did I come from?" And she says, Oh no! This poor child, is he

ready for life?" And she says, "Yeah, he's ready." So she took him

in on the sofa and sat down and proceeded to tell him the story of

life. About half way through, Johnny says,"Whoa mommy...that's not

what I mean. Billy comes from South Carolina...where do I come from?"

Well, Greig and Abe have talked about migration, where people

originate and move to hither and there. The other little story,

Johnny comes in with the same question, and says, "Hey mommy, where

do babies come from?" "Oh my gosh! the same thing, is he ready?"

Well, she says, "No, he's not ready. I can't tell him where babies

come from." So she says, "Johnny it's like this." She says,p"Babies

come,from seeds. And God takes a seed and puts it in mommy3s

tummy, and that seed grows, and that's where babies come from."

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: Well, that satisfied little Johnny deep enough. He went tearing out.

Later that day, he was eating an apple, and when you're a hungry

little boy eating an apple, sometimes you eat too deeply, and you

find seeds. Ah...he got one of those forward ideas...when the

bright light bulb come on...blop...seeds and babies. So he goes

tearing out in the yard, digs himself a hole, and puts his apple

seed in the whole. .goeszawayahappi*y. Didn't think about it any-

more until the next day when he came tearing out of his house, as

he hit the ground, he saw that fresh mound of dirt. And that light

bulb came on again, but sitting on that mound of dirt was the ugliest

old toad frog that Johnny has ever seen in all his life. And he

looked at the toad frog, and the toad frog looked at Johnny, and he

looked at the toad frog, and the toad...you know you can go on all

night and you get tired of looking. And finally he summed up all his

courage, and said, "If I weren't your daddy...I'd stomp the hell out

of you." Now now...we demographers study people, and I think that's

the way I'd like for you to think of what we do. As we study people,

and we study these three processes, as I've tried to

stories about Johnny. We study about birth, we study about people

dying, and we study about people moving. As I say, one of those stor-

ies has a defense for what I'm going to say. Do you know about the

lion in thb-jungle? I thought I did until I started telling some

students one day, and they corrected me so many- times. You correct

me when I get the story wrong. The lion woke up one morning and sA,

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: "I'm the king of the jungle." Says, "I'm going to go out and find out

if that's not true." And so he went bombing through the jungle, and

he came to a chimpanzee, and he said, "Chimpqnzee...who's the king

of the jungle?" And the chimpanzee looked at him and said, "You are

oh mighty lion." And the lion beamed and threw out his chest even

further, and walked on. He came to a skunk...he says, "Skunk...who's

the king of the jungle?" Skunk says, "Oh you are oh mighty lion."

And the lion was feeling pretty good, walking tall all the time. He

came to a clearing in the jungle and came to an old elephant stand-

ing there grazing away in the trees. He said, "Elephant...who's the

king of the jungle?" And the elephant et eating. He said, "Elephant,

I'm going to ask you twice...who's the king of the jungle?" And the

elephant kept eating. "Elephant...I'm going to ask you the last time,

who's the king of the jungle?" The elephant took his snout or trunk,

or whatever you call it...reached down and caught the old lion

around his stomach...his belly, whatever you call it. Waled over to

this big tree, and started slamming...WHAM WHAM WHAM, now you can go

on, you know, telling, again, all night...so he put the lion down, and

the lion went dragging off to the edge of the clearing, and he got

to the safety of the trees, and he turned around and looked over his

shoulder and said, "You didn't have to get so mad because you didn't

know the right answer." Well, I guess I have to differ from my uh,

two colleagues who have gone before me, because I'm not at a point

to give you the right answers yet. I would like to take this opportunity

7












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...to express our appreciation to all of you, and I hope we cap-

tured some of you in our studies. That's one thing that we've failed

tp teach our students as we teach them how to do research projects,

is to go back and to thank people for taking part. And so I do

sincerely express our appreciation for the willingness of people in

this county to take part. Four years ago a group of young PhDs

embarked on a journey because they felt that being so bright with

all new degrees that they ought to go out and seek the truth and

find the right answers, happened to come upon the ideathat there was

a need to discover further knowledge in the area of these "Johnny

jokes" I suppose. And so we sat down to try to map out a plan of

action where we could come to understand the process of why Johnnys

ask questions. We became interested in Robeson County...because

Robeson County is in the book as one of the poorest counties in the

nation, and yet at the same time, if you look at another set of

books...it is one of the richest counties in so far as the amount of

agricultural products that are sold. So we were interested in a,

can I say poor county, to see what's taken place. At the same time

Robeson County was a unique county because it afforded us an op-

portunity to look not at the usual color breakdown, the racial

breakdown of whites and blacks, but gave us a third group to

consider. We could look not only at the whites and blacks, but also

at Indians. So there was a second important reason why we were

interested in the county. A third reason which finally captured our


8













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...interest and brought us to this county to study families, was

the fact that say in a demographer's language...people language...

Robeson County is a rural county. As one looks at the storehouse of

information where people have studied the peopling process over

time, you find all the major studies, starting with the Indianapolis

Study back in the 40s and coming to the Princeton Studies in the 50s,

and the growth of American families in the 50s and 60s have been

primarily with urban places...big cities. And so we discovered what

we thought then was a vacuum, in-whattweeknow about the peopling

process. That there were very few...no major studies, let's put it

that way, studying the peopling process in a rural county, a poor

county, a tri-racial county. So we set out, and we were fortunate

indeed to have the blessings of the National Institute of Child

Health and Development. And they awarded us with funds that we might

conduct a two-year study here in Robeson County. Well the other

unique thing,-while I'm talking about thecunique thingsthat we de-

cided to try to accomplish, and I think it will be the strongest part

of the study that will emerge, and one which I think all of you along

with us can be proud of. This will be one of the first major studies

that has attempted to deal both with males and females in under-

standing the peopling process. The majority of the previous studies

have attempted to gain data only from female response. And pre-

dominantly white female response. So we think we have an opportunity

with the data which we have just completed the collection process


9













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...as some of you are probably aware, in the last...two ot three weeks

ago. We think we'll have some unique data, and we think we'll have a

great deal that we can say to our country, and that we can say to you.

So I look forward to code back andrtelllyoigwhat we do find once we

get some of the findings found. Let me take a few more minutes and tell

you some of the things that we are aprticularly interested in pursuing.

I'll name some of the major variables that people have looked at before.

trying to understand: the idea of residence, and where...whether you

live in a rural area, or an urban area: income-wise, and just tied up

in a concept that sociologists call "social class." I know you must have

read countless accounts of the relationship between the peopling process

and one's social class. So we decided to come in and take a look at some

other variables that haven't been explored in great detail. We wanted

to try to understand people's values...what they feel to be most

important to them.Also, to look at what people think about various

items, and what their attitudes are towards various issues...to look

at the goals, or the end results that people direct their daily lives

towards. And perhaps most important of all...was to look again at

what sociologists call "social relationships." And we wanted to get

some understanding as to what takes place between man and wife. And

how this affects their behavior, particularly their behavior in the

peopling process. So we uh, come in, and uh, I'm not going to ask you

to identify yourself. If you were part of our survey you'll recognize

some of the...the variables or questions then that we are pursuing

along these lines, trying to get a goals, attitudes, values, and

10











o SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

S INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...social relationships. And we have asked a couple of students to res-

pond as to how do they divide the labor in the household. Who carries

out the trash, uh, who washes clothes, who spanks the kids, who decides

to have kids...And in turn, looking at these issues in relationship to

many other variables. Who does what, who decides what, and what do you

do with your family, and how does what you do with your family

effect other parts of your individual life. Do you do things as a

family, do you do things as an individual...how does this effect the

decision to have a family in the first place. Well uh, we have asked

a number of question also about values or "value orientations" as we have

expressed it. Those things that we think people hold to be important.

Trying to decide if people have directed their thoughts to the future,

are we living in the present, or are we clinging to the old and past.

Not saying one is better than another, but simply wanting to see if we

can find where people are. When I was in school years ago, one of the

first things they tried to teach us as young demographers, was they

used to...to uh, come back and make some statement that a person...

general statements like religion, and...and social class cause one to

have the size of family that one has. And that translated down into

specifics sometimes, that Catholics have the most children because of

their religion. And blacks have the most children because of the color

of their skin. Uh, one can quickly see how this has no real impact on

what you do, so we need to go beyond that surface. Color of skin doesn't

really affect what we do does it? Or is color of our skin symbolic of

something else. Uh but .then we have discovered now that it's not

religion or Catho...Catholicism as such that causes us to have children,

11












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANPORD DIAL



S: ...but ene family comes out of Puerto Rico...is that that particular

group of Catholics just didn't talk to each other, that is husbands

and wives. And so one important part of what we're trying to look at

then...is how much do husbands and wives talk to each other in Robeson

County, Uh, I could go on and on and on telling you about uh, variables

that we want to look at, and as the others have said, I think I'll

stop, and say I'll be glad to talk to any of you...to allay your fears

that uh...we don't know anybody in this county as individuals. Some

persons have been concerned about the sensitivity of the issues,and uh,

we just look upon it as trying to understand what a group of people

uh...think and feel, and how they are acting about the peopling pro-

cess.

M.C. Well thank you very much Dave. Uh, food ready? They say the foods

ready, the coffee is hot, so why don't we have a coffee break, and

then come back, and Gene Breakston will sort of...he will wrap up, and

then we'll have open discussion.



M.C. Yeah, and Mrs. Hunt and...

U:

M.C. Yes, appreciate it very much. And uh, I see the Director of the

Office of Communications of the Bureau of Indian Affairs from Wash-

ington D.C., none other than the first Lumbee pilot of World War II,

retired commander, Timothy Oxendine. Come be with us again tomorrow

night. I believe I saw W.J. Strickland around here. He's been up in


12












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



M.C. Washington, uh, getting involved in the Indian world. W.J. welcome

back. I'm only recognizing people who are out of town, all the rest

of you, uh, you know you carry special recognition 365 days to the

year. Thank you. I hope all of you will return tomorrow night, and

bring someone with you because we will lose a few tomorrow to Raleigh

on the double voting issue...might not be back in time for the

session, so that means that everyone needs to get on the telephone

tomorrow, and invite at least five people back for tomorrow night

because we'll have something real good for you tomorrow night.

Brenda Brooks: If there's anybody interested in going to Raleigh tomorrow,

we will be leaving at nine-thirty in the morning...leaving from LRDA.

We have money for gas if you will drive. If you can't drive, and you'll

go we'll feed you on the way, but -puw- t, .

M.C. But you're going to be back for the session?

B.B. Yes sir.

U: That double voting thing is...those of you who have heard me before

know it's very important.

B: We'll break double voting and be right back.

M.C. I say, are you going to be back for the session? O.k. well Gene

Breakston is now going to tell us what we said.

G: I think rather than simply give you back what was said, that perhaps uh,

it'd insult your intelligence if I did that, but uh, rather try to bring

it together, a framework that maybe we can, uh that maybe we can take

some shots at it. Before I do this uh, uh, Professor Peck, if I have



13













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



G: ...your permission, may I recognize two people?

P: Sure.

G: Uh, Venus Jacobs, and Don Locklear, who I understand worked very

hard in getting out this marvelous crowd tonight. And I think

all of us appreciate having somebody to talk to, and they're

working on that.

If I were an outsider, say from England or France, and I was

asked to come in and study the Indian situation in America,

and more specifically, the Indian situation here...I might

begin by making an inventory of the assets and liabilities of

your situation. Because I may be an outsider, I would run the

risk of making some inaccurate statements because I would not

note the specific details. You know some things about your

situation that no outsider could hope to know. On the other

hand, I would also perhaps bring to the study a sense of ob-

jectivity, and perhaps a sense of being detached that might

be useful in looking at where you are, and what you hope to

be...that might not be gained by a person who was too closely

associated with the situation. Much like I ask a person who I

consider to be very sharp, and very tough, and very honest to

tell me a few weeks ago how he thought I was doing in my job.

Now when you do that you must get prepared to uh...hear some

things that may not be very flattering. I asked him to give me

the good news, and the bad news. Uh, may I tell a story...they're

14













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



G: ...a bunch of good news and bad news jokes. The airline pilot

who announces while they're in the air to the people in the

cabin. He says, "I want to announce some good news and some

bad news. I'm going to give you the bad news first. We are

hopelessly lost. And now for the good news...we're making ex-

cellent speed." Well let's look at the bad news of the Indian

situation in America. And uh...perhaps also, more specifically,

your own. As for the liabilities, Indians in North Carolina are

a rural people. Rural life has obvious advantages, such as:

privacy, no smog, no traffic jams, friendly neighbors, you can

go on listing them. But it has some obvious disadvantages.

Services such as: phone, water, mail delivery, medical facilities,

schools...are costly to provide when people are widely dispersed.

In some cases, in some rural areas...some of these services are

not available at all. Some Indians for example in the peopling

process in New Mexico must go a hundred miles to the nearest

hospital to have a baby delivered in a hospital. They're that

far from a doctor...that far from medical facilities. Paved r

roads and rural rectification, it shames us a great deal, but

they're still disadvantages. Rural schools, rural churches tend

to be smaller, and the*fraeless...less able than their city

counterparts to provide some services for their constituents.

Rural people in recent years have received less and less

political attention. I was associated with an evaluation of

15













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



G: ...Federal Programs for three years. That program was brought

into being essentially to see that rural people got some of

the services that urban people were getting. And I would say

the present administration also tends to give more attention

to urban problems than to rural. So the fact that you're

rural in some ways is a liability. True, as Indians you are a

third group in a society which tends to recognize only two

groups...black and white. Your historic struggle to maintain

a separate identity with separate churches and separate schools

is well known and needs little elaboration here. The point is,

that when the nation as a whole considers inter-group relations,

it tends to think in terms of black and white. A third defecit

is, that relative to whites, Indians as a category are not

wealthy. If you were, you would be better able to effectively

control your destiny. Here in Pembroke you have been able to

make some economic gains which are impressive. I believe that

is also true of the Indians in Sampson County, and also accord-

ing to the reports tonight, uh, also in Baltimore. In Halifax

County, and Warren County, North Carolina, in Washington County,

Alabama where I've been studying Indians there, and in San Duval

County, New Mexico...Indians are poorest of the poor. Third...or

fourth, historical Indians have had educational defects.

Indian schools were often a thrid system of schools in many

counties, poorly financed by the government, and often paid for

16












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



G: ...out of the meager resources of Indians themselves. If they

wanted schools they had to do it themselves. This is a matter

of historic record. Books and other learning resources were

scarce, teachers were poorly paid...students were often unable

to attend school regularly because they were needed to work on

farms. That still is a problem in a society, where if you're

born poor, and you want to move up the economic ladder...you

need to get quality education. And lacking quality education,

you have problems. It has already been mentioned that teaching

kids in school was a problem in some areas...it is a problem

in rural areas...it is a problem in the cities as well. Dr.

McClosky has mentioned a possible problem area for Indians

in Baltimore...the decline of the church. Historicaly, if you-

look at the records...the church has been an important element

in fostering a sense of identity. You look back at the early

indian schools that were established in this county and Sampson

County, and elsewhere in the state...many times they were an

outgrowth of thedSynda|:sTho61-ofsome-othegaorgafnization. So

the sense of Indian identity has been inextricably linked with

the viability and strength of the church. I see those as a few

deficits, problem areas, uh, negative areas if you wish. Now -

for the assets. Indians now enjoy the national reputation among

many whites, of being cultural heroes. Many whites are now

quite happy to find that one of their ancestors was an Indian.

As a matter of fact, there are so many whites that claim Indian

17













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



G: ...ancestors, that one must beleive that those early Indians

must have been real men and real women. It is a fact that

Indians have come to be heroes of the American past. And so I

think that there is now a reservoir of goodwill which can be

tapped whenever appeals are made for resources. I think the

sense...the sense in which Indians have been forced into

segregated facilities...schools, churches, has been a mixed

kind of blessing, for the churches and the schools have become

training grounds for leaders. It would be difficult to estimate

the impact Pembroke State University has had upon the Indians

of the state and elsewhere. As has already been mentioned, I

forget who it was that said it...this university provided young-

sters with role models. They...they could see that an Indian

could grow up to be a preofessor in a university. And Indian

could do something...uh...earn a good living, be respected. And

I think the fact that right here in this county Indians had .---

their own institution of higher learning has been a very very

important thing. And I don't know how to estimate the total

impact of...of this school. For example, the Tallowwa Indian

School in its early years...was almost entirely staffed by per-

sons who had originally gotten their training here. You've been

able to acquire land...a good bit of it. I went just to get some

feel for this to the uh, old record books today, and looked at

some of these early deeds that were given to Indians. You held

18












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



G: ...on to land since the seventeen hundreds. Uh, you said that

home is Robeson County. Here's where people own land. Here's

where people have put down their roots. It's been an important

thing. And I would say if I might give any advice for the

future...aquire land, and hold on to it. There is an important

sense in America, in which the land owner has had a better deal

than the person who did not own land. County officials recog-

nize people who own land. You tend to get a better deal in

courts. And uh, so I think that this has been an important part

of your heritage. Dr. Peck has mentioned your resources which

enables you to adapt to the stress of urban living. This sense

of having to struggle for your identity here, and maintain your

Indianness gave you a strength that has come into uh, good use

in Baltimore. Dr. McClosky has mentioned the role of the

Indian Center. And I think he has also touched an important

area when he mentioned the occupational aspirations of Indians.

Had a young man ride with me today. He says, I don't know what

I'm going to do. Said I'm thinking about learning brick laying.

And I encouraged him in this. I said you acquire that skill and

you'll be able to support yourself anywhere you go in the coun

country if you learn to be a good one. But then there's been a

shift, away from uh...uh, from the trades...the skill trades,

to the professional, and perhaps this is told to him. Uh, it

was mentioned also that you have learned the worthwhileness of

pulling together. Uh...I think this is terribly important. It

G: ...manifests itself in union orientation in Baltimore. The

Indians in Robeson County, Sampson County...somewhat later

in Halifax and Warren County...did establish an institute,

did learn to pull together. Had their schools, their churches,

their political organizations...this has not been true of all

Indian groups. One of the large Indian groups in South Alabama

so far as I know, never established an Indian club, never

established many of their own churches nor their own uh...

system of higher education. And as a result, they have not

been able to adjust as well to some of the stresses of urban

life. Well, as I see it, these are some of the pluses and some

of the minuses in assessing the situation. I hope that this a0

provides a vehicle for some of the questions that you might

U: For the purposes of Dave's study, how are you going to define

a Lumbee Indian, and what will be your definition of a Lumbee

S: It was simple identification, the interview process was

two-fold. We sent a team of interviewers to each household

in the sample, one the first visit, and asked the person in

that household to identify to which racial group do you be-

long. And so each household has identified itself as one of

the three groups we're looking at.

long as you had your own separate school system, and sort of by

agreement, "X" number of jobs were Indian jobs...uh, it kept you

in the middle...put a ceiling on you, but it was a...in many ways

a pretty happy middle. With the enforced desegregation, not only

of students, but of faculty, coupled with a surplus of public

school teachers...uh, that monopoly in a sense, of jobs, is

seriously threatened. Uh, tenure is a very shaky thing. With,

as a result...and it isn't only in Robeson County, it's all over

the state, and it's in every state that has gone through this

desegregation thing. O.k. so that...that sort of sets the pic-

economic position in the county is in jepordy. Uh, the double

voting issue comes in because it limits and minimizes the

Indian votes in deciding who's going to make the decisions about

who has the jobs. Be these positions based on deciding what

kind of tests do we give people. Do we take a seven foot ruler

and say o.k. everybody who's seven feet tall, they pass, and if

you're under then we'll rank you below it, or whatever the test

may be. The people who are going to decide that test and how to

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



S: ...studies of the Indian people in Baltimore done by the Indian

center, done by Indian people. And I think they are beginning to. Now

one of the first...you know you can do uh, studies without any back-

ground, you know do it, and then you may come out with information

which may not be very reliable. So right in the beginning there may

have to be help, some...some help given. And I don't know why some

of the Indians who are, uh, are well educated here can't help them

out in Baltimore too, in the Indian Studies Center. And tell them some

of the ways in which studies might be done. But I do agree with you. I

think it would be very important for Indians to really be doing most

of these studies of the Indian people. I am uh...I feel somewhat

guilty about this, and uh...I know...I willLsay-that I do try, and

where ever I can I stay connected with the Indian community, and when

called upon...I try to help out in whatever they want me to help out.

But you make a good point, and I do hope there's more...there're more

Indians who will be involved in doing this rather than people from the

outside coming and saying things. Well I still think that...Mr.

Breakston said...Dr. Breakston said...it is important for outsiders

also to be looking. It's not that we can fully understand as outsiders.

I would never pretend that I fully understand. But I think there's a

certain kind of outsiders view which I try to maintain as truthfully

and objectively as I can. But there's a little bit more, and I do think

the insider's view is very very important, and would be much more

illuminating than my view.

D: Let me just throw one thing in. As an anthropologist, when we look at

24













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



D: ...behavior, we find people sort of spread all over the map, and

tending, most of them, to fall in a particular area. Uh, the feeling

that a man is a man. Uh, there may be some homosexuals among the Indians.

Uh, obviously they don't feel this, but most Indians are going to sit

somewhere here in the middle. Uh, so that's the first thing we do. And

then as an anthropologist, the second thing we do, is we go down into

the situation, and we try and behave in terms of those things that we've

seen. And the first thing we find out is that we've made a mistake, and

we say Peck you're a darn fool. And so they straighten us out...if...if

they can. And if they have good feelings toward us. They straighten us

out. So in this kind of a contrast that we try and describe, uh, this

range of behavior, in terms of its central tendencies. Uh, on the other

point, I'd be...I'd be honored to be invited to your seminar.

0: May I say it offends me somewhat to be standing. Uh, I take the

philosophy...never stand when you can sit down, and never sit down when

you can lie down, uh...so I would much rather be sitting down, and I

would much rather be having you hold...talking. But uh, let me say in

fairness to persons who arranged this program, I did not, I'm simply an

invited guest. Uh, this is simply one thing that I have become interested

in...historic development of the Indian people. Uh, one other thing I

studied was occupational education, and I was asked to evaluate oc-

cupational education, in this case for whites, and when the...my research

was over I was invited to Washington, and they made me stand and tell

what I'd found out. And I hope that's what I...what we're doing here.

concept is what's going to be our salvation. When we ask those kind

of questions, and you know, and take your answers and evaluate them

and put them to use. And uh...you know, we've been a frustrated people,

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL





A: ...of the programs so that there can be changes...positive changes

made where there are defects.

B: Well I uh...I feel basically, in Baltimore, that the work is not

correcting some of the inequities in Baltimore needs to be done by

the Indian people, or the Indian center. They must do it, and all I

can feel is that I've made my study available not only to the Indian

center, but have made it available to a lot of people who helped me

in the course of the study...the Indians...gave them copies of it.

And I visit the center and visit my friends and talk with them and

want to be available to them if they need the help. I think that's

one of -the advantages of my situation. That I remained in Baltimore,

it wasn't just a study for one year. I stay there and continue my

contacts with them. I think the Indian people basically have to do

this themselves, and want to do it themselves. The Indian center

doesn't want me to come in and tell them how to do anything at all.

They're interested in my...the findings of my study. But they want

to do it themselves, and I think that's the way it will have to be

done.

C: On mine, mine really involved two phases. The first phase was...as

a starving graduate student...I paid all my own bills, and barely did

that, and so I couldn't help anybody but myself. I got a disertation

out of that, and that's something that I paid for, and it's also

something that you have given to me. And for this there is a debt.


27












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL





C: The second part of the study was...there was money in that. That was

part of the National Study of American Indian Education. Uh, and I was

a...one of I think six center directors. And I had I think the highest

porportion of Indian employees of any of the centers. Every single

one of my interviewers was Indian. Uh, they received some training,

not a whole lot, but they received some, and many of them have gone

on to be then skilled interviewers in other studies that came through

here. Uh, the output from this...that study went into a final report

to congress, and to the President. Uh, not an awful lot has come from

it, but the new Indian Education Bill that some of you know about,

that's been passed, but hasn't gotten the funds paid for was influenced

with some of the information from that national study. And on a couple

of key issues it was influenced. And one of them was the way in which

an Indian is defined. Because up until that time, pretty much, when it

came to funding, an Indian was defined as a member of the B.I.A. role.

On the new Indian Education Act, he's defined as any group that the

state recognizes as an Indian is elligible. Now this is a real crucial

shift, and it wouldn't have happened I don't think without the sup-

porting evidence from the National Study of Indian Education. Uh, some

other changes that have happened in the county as a result of that

study. I think there's a new awareness and emphasis on the importance

to you of Indian history. And not only to you, but to everybody else

in the county because they're living in this county too, and they want

to know something about Indians. Uh, this isn't moving perhaps as fast

28















SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



C: ...as we would like it to, but it is moving. And so there's some

things going there. I think I also am, and have been a re-

source for people down here. Uh, and would like to be more

of a resource. But I think that best of all, I would like

to be run off...have somebody who is more qualified, who's

Indian and they don't need me.

Q: Was uh, Federal-Indian Policy part of your basis in your study?

I know that historical part comes tomorrow night, but uh, I

was just wondering if that business of people here getting

caught between Federal Indian Policy and the state, and their

reaction to it caused them to, I guess in a lot of cases,

caused somewhat a disappointment in Indian leadership. I think

that's probably more of a key than anything else in my study.

A: See, it usually never came up directly, but was always there.

Uh, and I went through all sorts of flack on the national study

because uh, the Lumbee didn't fit the mold. Uh, without federal

funding, without federal payments, your income was higher than

most Indians. Without federal...B.I.A. schools, your education

level was way above other Indians. Uh, you just didn't behave

like uh a lot of the Indians in the United States should be-

have. Even those in tri-racial situations, you didn't...didn't

fit the pattern. And one of the big differences is, other

Indians in tri-racial situations tend to be...in a tri-racial


29













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



A: ...situation with whites, Spanish-American, Indian, they're

on the bottom. And the Lumbee they were well

into the middle, well into the upper-middle, and even when you

look at their income...it was, you know, edging toward the

poverty level. But the behavior was not. They were behaving

like...you know, not...not very wealthy middle class and

upper-middle class. But boy, they had the Protestant Ethic

right down the line. They had the work ethic right down the

line. They had the...the attachment, very strong attachment,

for the church, even when they didn't go. They just looked

really good solid middle class people, and this...this didn't

fit in with most of the studies that exist. And so it-was-a-eonn-

tinual hassle in the study-to-try and fit Lumbee data in to

make sense with other Indian data. So it's in this kind of a

context that...that the hassle took place for me.

Q: I'd be interested in...if each one of you can, in your endeav-

ors, in the county, as you proceeded to study the Indians,

what was the reaction as far as say the whites power structure

as you went about doing your study ...a personal feeling, what

you felt...what they thought you were here doing, and what kind

of cooperation you received from these people? And I'd like to

know the sources if at all possible 2 edd. dealt with.

A: I thought that was good. I don't know if this is what you want

or not, but we did try to solicit the cooperation of every

30












SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



A: ...group when we came in. And uh...we found the Indians to be

the most cooperative. ---s_ .

B: I don't know what I can make of that one.

Q: cr -'\rt your study.

C: Now we were...to be honest,.,we...we went to...three or four

years ago when we thought about-coming down to Robeson County,

\\ gs, that we'll blast in there and get a lots

of white interviews done...we'll have trouble with the Indians

and the blacks. We'll just have to do the best we can. Well,

we blasted in here and got one hundred percent support from

the Indians, a high amount of support from the blacks, and poor

support from the whites.

D: I'm not sure your request is particularly appropriate to

Baltimore, but I will answer it in a couple of ways anyhow.

Let me say as far as the Indians were concerned, I really got

a very friendly reception. You know, until people got used to

me, and thought perhaps I was a cop, or something, until they

got used to me, uh...un...my university connection really paved

the way, and my grey hair paved the way. Uh, Indians feel uh,

respect for-old-peeple. My grey hair was in no way a hinderance.

Maybe it kept me from some of the bar drinking parties, uh, they

didn't invite me, but otherwise my reception was very good, very

friendly, and there were only a few who I felt didn't trust me

after awhile, and I didn't and I didn't thrust myself too strongly

on them. I will say about some of the outsiders though, and their

31
















SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



D: ...thoughts. You know, there're a lot of, uh, in this area of

Baltimore most of the shopkeepers are not Indian. There are

a few Indians there. Most of them are not Indian. I did talk

with shopkeepers just to get what they knew about, what they

thought about, and a lot of them were amazed that I thought

it worthwhile to study Indians, and there was some problem

with them, and they had some problems with Indians too. But

uh, by and large, I don't really feel they counted very much

as far as my being able to understand the Indians. And I had

made the point in my study that I think it would be very good

if the Indians were willing to take over some of the stores

in this area. Really run some of the businesses there. It -

would make a big difference in the area if the Indians ran

some of the businesses themselves in that area. Now I will

say about authorities in Baltimore. Authorities in Baltimore

are very eager to get information about Indians. They really

are, they know there's a big Indian community there. From time

to time there have been difficulties with Indians. The Indians

uh...when uh, pushed by police, they'll push back, and it gets

to be a problem as far as the person concerned. They were re-

ally...I went to talk to a number of authorities again, just

to look into the question of trouble with the law, and see


32













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL



D: ...the extent to which some of these officials connected with

the law were to hear about Indians and so on. I really was

surprised at one thing, that while everybody knew about Indians,

they really...they really didn't know many Indians. They really

didn't have much experience with Indians. I can remember a

conversation with the head of the probation department of the

main court in Baltimore, and'he said he knew the Indians very

well, but then he looked up his records as to the number of

Indians who had been referred to him uh, to put on probation

in 1969. Of 1313 cases, I remember the figure, there were

eleven Indians he had all together. That is, not many Indians,

the Indians are well known. The authorities know them very

well, but not that many really get in trouble with the law.

But the uh, administration generally is very interested in -

the Indians. I was amused at the uh...opening meeting, the

inaugural of theslndian Center. The commissioner of police

went to the inaugural of the Indian Center, and a number of

other city officials were there too. So uh, this is what I

can tell you about Baltimore anyway.

E: In my work here in the county, basically I worked with

Indians, and I worked where you still had Indian schools. Uh,

to do that I had to clear and get permission from young

Allen, and he gave it. He gave it in good faith, and did not

in any way inhibit or encumber my study. I think this is an

33













SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK

INTERVIEWERL DANFORD DIAL



E: ...important thing at least for me to remember. Uh, at a later

date I sent some people down to try and get some economic in-

formation from Lumberton, from the county, and you have never

seen so many papers lost. It was just incredible. And so what

I figured out, is that when a study is being done, that the

power structure perceives as not threatening or harming them,

it's pretty cooperative. But if they see or think that it

might harm them, that it might...not just build up the In-

dians...but build up the Indians at the white power structure's

expense, then they're going to resist. And I think this has

been basically the pattern that I have observed. I think cer-

tainly the uh...there have been a lot of you mention the civil

rights appearance that you had last September...uh, tended to

reenforce this as kind of a conclusion. That where it...if it

doesn't matter they're more than willing to cooperate. If it-

'll do some good, but not cost them anything still they'll

cooperate. But where they perceive it as a threat to their

position then the cooperation comes much harder. There pro-

bably are some notable exceptions to this in the county gov-

ernment though. This is...this is...again, one of theseigen-

eralities that I mentioned that's describing that central

part. But there are people os d 6 bo d that are

quite different.

INTERVItEE ; DAPNFD DIAL



E: I should say that most of my study has been of a historic na-

ture, or has dealt with economic data. Most of this is a mat-

ter of public record, so that actually if I wish go in and

demand to see the titles. Or I could demand to see total as-

sessments. I will say that at the interpersonal level I have

found county officials to be most cooperative. And under-

standably, these are persons who must run for reeelection.

They don't want any flippant careless statement to be repeat-

ed outside the any group. And...and

so uh, I am an outsider to them. You see, there are grave and

serious cleveages among whites. And uh, so uh, sometimes a

sociologist is not exactly a loved person by the power struc-

ture because he represents potentially a threat. Oh, one other

thing I meant. I have never yet started a study with the

Lumbee Indians that I did not have to go through a two or

three hour period, but I guess I could best accredit that to

sermons on why I shouldn'r be doing what I want to do. Uh,

usually quite well thought out and quite justified, but when

that is through if I still want to do it, and if they agree

to do it...boy you've got somebody behind you one-hundred

per cent. This has been a...you know, it just...I mean they're,

they're really behind you, and really going to help you. This

is...I think maybe a characteristic thing down here.

this information to him. This is not the best of our people.

right in that area. I worked in Lumberton, I had on a white

shirt, sleeves rolled up, clean pants. This is what we are

living and what we must get rid of. I think all we Indians wa

want is...is...is the...is the power structure to open the way.

poor. But we want the power machine to open up to us...let us

have the same opportunity the white race has. I want to walk

down the street with you just like another man. But we haven't

had that privilege. I had a seat up there at Lumberton about

1964. I had a seat on this stool up there at the counter. I

They have to...they get into a funny kind of climate. And this

is one reason why in--Baltimore...the Indians come in, their

economic position raises up very fast, very well, very

solid, and then they hit a spot. And in order to go beyond

that spot they have to stop being Indian...and most of them

B: I'd like to speak to that just a minute if I may Mr. Peck.

Seems to me like the questions have _graded social

adjustments the Indian has to make. It seems to me that one

of the biggest that I've observed has been to accept himself

and to adjust himself to being Indian first. Once you get over

that hurdle you don't have to think sales manager, and manag-

erial and whatever else. You can think just as any other per-

son then...once you get adjusted to yourself as being Indian.

And not something closer to being white or something near to

being black...that you are an entity and that entity happens

to be Indian.

the major problem...identity. And that's why I, *

when I began talking ...I choose to talk about identity

Q- / gAy '4 A4/ o'so I might add something else

about Baltimore as a major problem. The city is a hard place

to raise kids, and one of the reasons...people say I wish I

could come back home and live in Robeson County...is that it

is hard to bring up kids. People who don't make much money,

and the Indians, while they're far from the bottom of the

ladder, still don't make much money. They can't live in really

not an easy life for them. I suppose they do have good jobs,

or feel they have good jobs...or a lot more would be coming

home than do come home. There'still is a stable community in

Baltimore. But any time you talk to them...the answer that

anybody would give to you...it's just hard to bring up kids

in a city like that...and I agree with them. It is hard to

bring up kids in a city like Baltimore.

Prize winner, who wrote, - najdl c ^ a,

American Indian Historical Society, with headquarters at

1451 /,> Ave., San Francisco..."An American

Indian is-an-idea, it's what one believes himself to be." And

we could say, "What does an Indian look like?" And 3 ubs a

Lee says, "I have often heard the phrase, that he doesn't look

Indian. I've often wondered what an Indian is supposed to

look like. To an outsider he probably looks like the Holly-

people from all tribes. Some look oriental, some have blond

hair and blue eyes, some dark eyes, and some straight black

hair. To me they're all Indians. Not because of their physical

make-up, or because they have a roll stating that they are

Indians, but because he is interested in what happens to his

people. He suffers whenever his people suffer. He enjoys him-

self when he is around his people. And Indian looks like an

Indian not from the outside, but from the inside where it re-

ally counts. I think we have enough discrimination from the

outside...why practice it among ourselves. An Indian is an

Indian no matter what he ieBs like. The problem is not his,

but rather the problem of the person who makes the statement

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL





D: ...that he doesn't look Indian. It makes no difference what

he looks like as long as our hearts and feelings look In-

dian." I like that...I like that very much. If you remember

that tonight, and you don't get anything else out of this

session, I think it will be worth your time here. Let us

deal with some of the historical dates, and let me say that

I am not speaking to scholars, I'm speaking more to the lay-

men at this point. I'm not speaking to scholars, I'm speak-

ing to laymen. And if you know everything I say, why just

take it easy for awhile until the next speaker comes along.

I'd like to begin with 1587 because of John White's lost col-

ony. All of you are familiar with the three early English

voyage...and the third, John White's Lost Colony, which of

course the colony was lost. You know, when he left in 1587,

and returned in 1590 he did not find the colony. Keep in mind

that I only have a few minutes. So he was going to Croatan

the next day, he and the captain, but the captain, something

happened to the ship, and he advised him against it, and they

didn't make the trip to Croatan. Maybe the lost colony was

there. Well, Croatan Indians as a tribe didn't inhabit Croatan

Island...they were Hatterus Indians. And perhaps when Hamilton

McMillan put his bill through in 1885 designating Indians here

52,

D: ...as Croatan Indians...if he had come up with Hatterus Indians

he would have saved a lot of legislation, and a lot of time

over the many many years. Now I'm not suggesting another change

at this point...I want to make that clear. The sixteen hundreds

is pretty much a blank century. Very little happened as far

as recorded history goes. Uh, we have an account of Morgan Jones

but we can't rely on what he said too much. So it's pretty much

a blank period, but maybe the people were migrating in this

direction from Roanoke. 1709...all of you know that's the first

North Carolina historian John Lawson, speaking of the Hatterus

Indians. Talk about these people who speak in the book who have

blue eyes and blond hair, or who talk in the book, and speak

the English language. Or maybe he was talking about some of

their people. And only hit on highlights agd -l1iA _.

In 1754, Governor Dinwitty of Virginia wrote to Governor Dodd,

and he asked for the trip of the Indians in North Carolina.

And Governor Dodd replied, "There's a lawless...there's a law-

less group." And he didn't say a lawless group of Indians,

but there's a lawless group of people we'll say, living on

Drowning Creek, which is the Lumbee River, in this area...who

have taken their land without Quint Rent and /---

D: ...Revolution that our people fought in the American Revolut-

ion without a doubt. The same goes for the War of 1812. But

the tragic time came to our people in 1835. From 1835 to 1885

was fifty years...it was a dark age. It was fifty years of

uh, you know, a real struggle. You think we have a struggle

now because of the double vote over there in Raleigh, and

some of the guys pass the buck you know. It was a...it was a

time when we were really fighting for our rights. Because the

Constitution of North Carolina was revised in 1835...which

disfranchised the black man. We were not recognized at that

time by the United States Government as some other Indian tribes.

We were not white, we were not black...therefore we were caught

up in a situation as we sometimes say, "Between the devil and

the deep blue sea." Now something that you...most of you have-

n't heard about. There were some supreme court decisions,

state supreme court descissions after 1835. Just happened to

run on these in my research. One was the uh...Charles Oxendine

versus the State of North Carolina, 1837, and Oxendine was

charged with assault and battery. And he pleaded guilty. And

the court ordered him hired out as a "free person of color."

See, from '35 to 1885 we were known as free persons of color.

Then he appealed to the supreme court, and Judge William Jackson,


51

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL





D: ...and his penmanship is terrible, he prohibited Oxendine from

carrying this...see, Jackson was Catholic, I think he had an

opened mind on the issue, and he didn't want to make a

constitutional decision. And I think he was really, you know,

I really don't know what he had in mind. There was another

case, Noel,.N-o-e-l, Locklear against the State of North

Carolina, 1853...which involved carrying a weapon. And he was

charged with carrying a weapon in violation of the act of

1840. He was a...he was tried, and I think convicted, the best

I could make out. Defendants with...with this man were Troy

Reed, and some other Reed. Well, I thought I would mention there

was another case...John Locklear, I don't have the details on

it, and that happened right about this time. In 1864, well let's

say that the war.. .you know South Carolina seceded from the

Union in 1860, and of course secession followed, and by 1864

the war was almost over. And this was the beginning of the

Lowry Boys, 1864. You know the story of some escaped prisoners

from Florence who came into the area, and perhaps they were

housed near the Lowry...the mother of Henry Barry Lowry speaks

of keeping two or three on occasion. But to move on, we know

this period during the Lowry War, that there were several

causes...I think it goes back to 1835...it goes back to the

D: ...fact that Allen Lowry, the immediate cause. You know Allen

Lowry and-his son William, Henry Barry Lowry's father and

brother being shot. But anyway, perhaps there was a need for

this war at this time. Lumbee Indians today call their number

one hero Henry Barry Lowry...over the ages. I want to make

that plain to you. My mother was a very good Christian Methodist,

and you know she thinks Henry Barry Lowry was a great man. He

was. This is the way we think about-Henry Barry Lowry, he was

a great man. We decorate people who go to Vietnam, or we build

great statues showing raising the flag on Iwo Jima. You know,

and we do a whole lot of things...right? You're supposed to

say right. I'm not going to say anything about the Lowry Gang

because that would take weeks. Since I'm only hitting high

lights of dates...in 1885 the North Carolina Legislature pass-

ed a law designating the Indians of Robeson County as Croatans,

and all of us are familiar with this. Well this did a lot for

us. The minutes of the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association show

in 1881...they met in 1880, they kept no meetings...no minutes,

but in 1881 they met. And the minutes of the Burnt Swamp Bap-

tist Association...called their organization the Burnt Swamp

Baptist Association of the mixed race. They had no name. It

was a struggle. And I want to find out...during the entire

Indians black, and put them down low, and kept them there.

I'm not saying all white people would have done it...no, but

there were some who would have. In '87 was the beginning of

Pembroke State University...Croatan Normal School. And it first

had course rates hanging under the door $- uau We -j. o> -4

My grandfather inscribed it there. Now the Legislation in 1885

provided for public schools, let me say that. Now Hamilton

McMillan, representative from Red Springs, and I understand

for awhile. I was told this by Judge Early It

had been told...his parents told him about .l AiUm And

the Indian people thought well of Hamilton McMillan, and I

think he did a...deserves a building on the Pembroke State

University campus, and I hope the board of Trustees will get

around to it some time. Hamilton McMillan was a great friend

to the Indian people. I feel that way and I might as well speak

it. Of course the name Croatan was based on the lost colony

theory that I think yaBfe heard.But the name didn't work out

too well because the white people of the area caused the

Indian people of the area to despise.,..the name Croatan, so

when it was used in such a derogatory manner, and perhaps so

today, but for different purpose, they didn't make er o

went...I'm with you. I'm against double voting. Not to lose

my trend of thought. But in 1911, we were designated as Indians

of Robeson County. And of course the name of the Institution

had to change. But we only kept that name for two years. In

1913 you know people said,"Well golly...Indians of a county...

why we're something more than that. Let's have a name." In

1913...Cherokee Indians of Robeson County. Well the Cherokee

Indians of western North Carolina never did like this move.

And rightfully so. Now I'm not saying there's not some

Cherokee blood in this area. We have some Cherokee blood in

the area. But we had the new bill, 1913, Cherokee Indians of

Robeson County. Not even an Indian from Oklahoma could at-

tend the institution at that time. Now you look back today,

and you say, "Well how stupid!" But never the less, I'm tel-

of the committeemenhere... they had the power to name his

successor. But the Robeson County Board of Education...I

didn't know that until this week...they could veto their

action. But I don't think they ever did. They left it to

It gave our boys a chance to go away. And they didn't know

very much, they hadn't been any place. And the first

seargent down at Camp Jackson, he called the role, and

he said, "OXENDINE, LOCKLEAR..." we'll say John Locklear,

and this actually happened...and Locklear says, "Seargent

you've called my name backwards." And the seargent says,

"We'll have no more damn wisecracks out of you." But before

captain stepped out and he said, "I'd rather have men like

Oxendine, brother Locklear5and so forth, and there was

another Dial in there-. "I'd rather have these men...I'd ra-

any other time in the history of our race. And the boys

deserve a lot of recognition for their hard work. You

Lumbee, Teedee, Congoree, Santee, all of these were ee?

Hamilton McMillan says that the old Indians call Lumbee

River Lumbee River. Only he says Lumber River Lumbee River.

All of you now need to call it Lumbee River. If the legis-

lature won't change the name change it yourself. I never

refer to it as Lumber River...I say Lumbee River. I'm going

swimming this summer in Lumbee River. And she's a fine river,

the poet says, and speaking of names in 1953, of course the

state legislature recognized the Indians as Lumbee Indians.

And in 1956 we had our first congressional approval signed

by the President...as Lumbee Indians. Now I'm not saying

there's not Tuscarora blood here. There is Tuscarora blood

in Robeson County without a doubt. And those who choose to

be of the Tuscarora tribe have faith to feel that way. And

don't rule it out because that could take time and it's

still true. What I'm saying is true.

D: McNeil, North Carolina's great poet says

about the river, "And subject to change..." And you know

we're...our names have been changing...and he wrote in 1905,

"As subject to change as peas and as any girl that goes.

And no human angel ever possessed more variable hues and

tints and shadows in her misty eyes...than this unconscious

flirt...where the reflection of flags and reeds and rushing

ripples below her banks, and the yellow of the gravel bot-

tom in shallow places darken gradually to the black depths."

And he goes on and he has a lot to say. And on down here I

notice..."that her playmates know that she is as reckless

as her name...as a rose is. She is just as wild, wondering

about in her solemn swamps as she was when the Indians cal-

led her Lumbee." And he ends with a last sentence..."Come

summer, I'll throw myself on her breast again and feel her

cool soft arms around me." 1905. She's a beautiful river.

I hope are good for many people. I don't know if it really

works that way or not. Through the years...the past five

years I've kind of evolved a chalk board talk about under-

standing the community, as I understand it, and I'm going

to draw a bunch of pictures on the chalk board. To make them

a little bit more Indian I thought that I might have such

things as arrows, and a medicine wheel, and a teepee. But

and I'll probably have some different names for them as I go

along. The way I got started in this was through something

called systems theory, and systems sounds complicated...it's

really a very simple kind of thing. There are elements. Ele-

ments can be any thing you want to call elements. Which

sometimes get linked together through exchanges. For example,

people talking together. And sometimes the exchange is

___ -__ enough that there may be a eventually

a boundary that differentiates what's in and what's outside.

And that really complicates the quest of the identity...

question...when you've got a system, you've got a non-system

or an environment outside of it. But there may be elements

still wandering around out there. There may also be things

like feedback, or information from the environment that goes

into the system. There may be directionality, or the thing

may arraine itself so that it has some kind of purpose and

values and things like that. Well that's the whole notion

of systems theory. Systems theory can be applied to a lot

of things. I use it to try to understand my community. In

thinking of a community I look first and notice there are

INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL





0: ...some people who in a sense constitute elements. And I

think way back in history of some of our communities we

had people who were fairly isolated, sometimes on the fron-

tier, or some times in isolated bands, or groups of people.

After a period of time numbers increased and people began

to settle down. There were more exchanges. And rather

than be isolated there were more and more groupings. These

groupings really formed small towns for example. I like to

think of that as small town America...with an identifiable

community with the people mostly linked together with some

patterns of exchanges for example, some people might be a

business man, or a doctor, or lawyer, housewife, farmer, so

forth. Whereas maybe in-an earlier time people were more

self-subsistant. They would have...they had less dependence

on others occupationally or otherwise. Well this lasted for

awhile and really now we've got very complex communities

with just dozens and dozens of groups. And we have people

who also act as consultants and travel around from place to

place in the thing too. It's a lot more complicated than in

the small town kind of thing. Where you've got both the

small groups, and you've also got people who are constant-

ly moving about. Well if we think of this, and maybe began

0: ...then to add another dimension. Who makes decisions, and

who controls what other people do...we began to find that

these people were self-subsistant...took care of their

ownselves, made decisions for themselves. Their decisions

usually did not affect other people very much if they

weren't linked together. So I could of kind of diagram

that as a kind&of system of-equality. I don't know if that

ever really existed in absolute terms, but maybe there's

a tendency toward that. In a small town, notice that some

individuals have more exchanges going for them than others,

and that means their decisions sometimes count for more,

they're very often the leaders. And some are kind of left

out, and they don't...their decisions don't count for as

much. So you kind of have some leaders up at the top of

a teepee here, and some people scattered through the mid-

dle, and some people at the bottom. And the linkages are

still very much there, so that those leaders, and follow-

ers in between...I could draw a lot more linkages there,

but I think we got the the picture. In a larger community....

maybe twenty-thousand people there, twenty-five-thousand,

but today there are something like two-hundred-and-twenty-

thousand. So the size of the thing has increased very dra-

matically. Also, with that increase in size, let's go back

to leaders, go back to powers. Sometimes we have class

lines forming where we're kind of held in place. People

are upwardly mobile for the most part. They try to accom-

plish certain values, goals, directions...good things.

And really, the energy of the people gets directed toward

those things...the leaders are there first, and the follow-

usually trying to be upwardly mobile, trying to work hard,

get a better job; work hard, get a better education for

kids; work hard in school, get better grades...able to do

a great distance. You did a lot better. And now, if you

move that far, you!ve:still maybe moved an equal distance,

but the scene got so much bigger that I wonder sometimes

if it does...suddenly it doesn't mean very much to be up-

wardly mobile. And I think sometimes the competition gets

a little bit rougher. Also, the distance from the bottom,

in a small community, even if you're hurting...if you're

struggling at the very bottom of things, you have low in-

come, broken family, poor housing, on and on and on...you

still have access to those people who make decisions. It

may take several steps to get up there, but your voice

can be heard in your community, and you can influence the

decisions that are made...hopefully. But then when-we-get

somebody who goes to somebody who goes to somebody, and

you try to get your voice heard by those who make the

nodding...the poor are generally caught down here. The

poor is here at thecottom. You've also probably got some

kind of prejudice from up here working, pushing you even

down further. My own work has been in the, since the

last two years, has been in the area of drug addiction,

and I find the people who turn...well who are sometimes

caught in an impossible position sometimes turn to heavy

alcohol use, heroin use, sometimes people who are caught

struggling, trying to climb the ladders here, you know,

kind of like having to...to work hard all day, come home

at night, you're so tense, and been through so much

stress at working at a o.k. job, but not the greatest job

that you really want. By the time you come home you're so

tired, drained, it's all you can do to open a can of beer,

sit there and try to relax...and sit yourself back down

and take some tranquilizers to manage that stress. Of

be able to work hard, climb the ladder, get the job done

for the day. And people use the "ups" and "downs" or

amphetamines and "barbs" in the...in the same kind of way.

Mood regulators are useful there when you've got to work

at a difficult job, and when you've got to be able to go

to sleep at night because you're so upset with the way

things are going. Another thing I see in the communities

are...increasingly throughout the community, pep le are

questioning these values, the goals, the directions, the

purposes that we've had. Especially when on a national

level we run into some things where we aren't really sure

those directions that we're going in...maybe those direc-

tions aren't right. I think a lot of us have had questions

about how we...the Vietnam war, about cutting back poverty

programs...about lots of things, so increasingly I think

we question our destiny...our direction that we're setting.

Another kind of thing that I think happens here, is that

very often our communities are split, so that some of us

may live in one place, and we don't communicate with our

neighbors. Sometimes we're split by...I don't know...not

only geographic area, but by the different kinds of

we never look this way, and we never look this way. We're

too busy trying to climb the ladder up this way, and we

lose sight of our neighbors, or our...other people who

could be our friends who may have a different discipline,

different role in their community. They get hostility in-

stead...they compete with them, and...in our climb upward.

Another thing I see happening very much, is that these

barriers sometimes change in how rigid they are. But I

think some of the recent research that I've seen indicates

that a lot of the barriers are pretty solid. That there

are lots of subtle barriers, there are lots of pretty open

barriers. But I think in the last few days...I'm...I'm

very convinced there are lots of barriers if you're anazi--

lidian, I tMink there are lot& of barlIertif you're black

based on skin color. There're economic barriers, social

barriers, political barriers, education, on and on and on.

Well, it's...that's the way a community is set up these

days, and I'm not totally sure that this is the way it is,

but increasingly I see that that kind of description fits

the communities I know. if that's the case what can we do?

people down here have a greater say in decision making,

so that when these people allocate resources, and they

make those decisions in good things that happen...so that

these people are heard and have a chance to get those

things. So that maybe sometimes these barriers aren't so

rigid. So that maybe these lines here that keep us apart

from each other...is there some way to reduce that. This

is the kind of thing that I've concerned myself about ,

with Raleigh and Fayetville too. Some of the strategies

pertained, and I'm going to run through a whole bunch of

them because I think they're important. One of the things

that I used to think could happen, would be that to just

get the word to these people, and they could make some

changes happen. We've just got a problem, and it'll...it'll

all turn right. Well, we tried that...it didn't work.

These people are held in place, both by the push from up

here...these people are busy climbing up there, and they-

are held in place because of that. But also, if you've

dealt with some of the elites, they're linked in with ot-

to city. They're kind of locked in there because of maybe

state or federal kinds of things as well, so they can't

really change very much. Well, that didn't work too well.

Another kind of thing, I've had some academic training in

how to rehabilitate individuals, and I set out to do

things like that. Find somebody who was hurting, evaluate

them, get them some special training, fix them up, get them

up here where everything is good. And great, he's happy,

making a productive living, he's not poor anymore...fine,

works great for an individual. But there's a slight prob-

lem in that too, in that you can keep bringing individuals

up here, but other individuals get pushed down here I

think at the same time. The structure stays the same, and

you end up with many poor people, many hurting people, and

the same kind of situation all over again. It's important

to the individual, but somehow it doesn't really bring

about the like results for the whole community. Another

kind of strategy is to begin organizing. And I know there

are many here who organized at one time or another...again,

where people are hurting. And grassroots organizing...you

side. You've got two...two possible directions here. And if

you've got a really together group of people, and you're re-

ally te n with it you might be able to move some distance,

but as we talked, I think, yesterday, once these people begin

to notice what's going on here they get pretty threatened.

And the first thing you know, they start monitoring what's go-

ing on, and then set up a kind of blockade there, and start

coming down heavy as a threat recoil cycle. As soon as there's

a threat they start recoiling against it. So that doesn't work

too well either. Well, we've tried all those kinds of-things,

and I've...I don't know...we used to be caught.somewhere...

probably somewhere down here. I figure gee...what am I going

to do? My next thought was maybe I should just try to move

right on out someplace and do a long haired hippy thing, and

find a quiet farm somewhere, and move to a quiet place. But

somehow that doesn't work either because once you move out-

side these lines here...pretty often you're fair game. You

break one of these rules or laws or something, as soon as you

So that didn't work very well either. And especially people

who move outside this way or whatever are caught in the same

type trap that the poor generally are. They're fair game. If

you're down here, you're fair game for the police department,

fair game for every social agency, you're fair game for every

kind of thing that can...can happen. And you've got no avenue

to redress wrongs. Now after all those kinds of things I think

back and try to figure...where do I go from here? And I'm

still struggling with that a lot, had some thoughts. One thing

I've noticed is that there've been some technological changes

in our culture which have really changed this as they've hap-

pened. The technology that was invented twenty-five, thirty

years ago that has influenced us very subtlely, very deeply,

we haven't really noticed this. Kind of pushed on the middle,

and really, eliminated middle class America in a great sense.

And what we've ended up with is...either you've got a kind of

power, or you're a person. And that power whatever it may be

begins to control you. Some of the technological changes I'm

talking of here...include the computer. If you've ever argued

with a computer that's got your address wrong on a mailing

doesn't. Another kind of thing is the atomic bomb...which

has an ultimate kind of power, and we just hope, we don't

know, we don't have very much say in the decision really.

Some other kinds of things like this...television, mass-media,

mass-transit. Another kind of thing is a lecture, such as is

going on right now that you can, sitting here, where some

supposed expert stands up here and delivers a message. And

you are forced to sit there and listen, and you have very

little chance to really send back messages, or to carry on

a discussion. And increasingly I think our lives are caught

in this kind of alwhirl. We can change it, and I see that as

a kind of direction that we are going in, and have been going

in. Well...what I've set about in Raleigh, has been, how do

you begin a ten, twenty year project just like Bill Lyles has

been talking about. I felt a lot of kinship with what he was

talking about. Are there some ways you can take this, kind of

a thing and redesign it? Maybe say that it's like this. And,

so that more people have more say in decision making, so that

more people look to each other, rather than just up the lad-

der, and so that there are fewer people hurting. I know a lot

are hurting, but at least we can reduce the number if that

has to be a true kind of thing. One of the ways that I've

been working on this, is through a large scale series of

discussion groups. Trying to bring people together from

different parts of the community. And I have the communities

kind of split up in a lot of different ways, for example,

by race, by income level, by geographic area, by age, by...

I don't know, we could go on and list a lot of other things

here to. But when we divide up a community as they seem to

be increasingly people don't talk to each other if they're

different from themselves. They don't have a sense of com-

munity or identity. And it's very easy to put everybody

else down, and ignore that larger community in that sit-

uation. So we've started working with some discussion groups

where we've sat people around in a medicine wheel kind of

circle, and gotten discussions going, where we've had some

exciting kinds of things happen. Being black and white, and

in Fayetville we did have a very small number two or three

Indians, in the project we ran there with the police depart-

ment, and a variety of other groups somewhat similar to this.

I wrote down a couple of thoughts here. I think this group

right here represents a kind of mechanism somewhat similar

to that, somewhat similar to the pow wows, where people

from a large area get together, exchange ideas, get aquainted,

develop some symbols of identity of meaningfulness to them,

and begin to be concerned about their larger community, and

make some things happen. Is it possible to continue meetings

such as this, maybe in a different form? Can this group do

that? Another thing might be some sort of a community educa-

tion group for progress somewhat similar to what we've been

doing in Raleigh, where we've developed a large series of

discussion groups, but each discussion group has involved

people from a diversity of backgrounds. That might be a pos-

sible kind of thing that could be set up here someday, per-

haps to bring about what I'm trying to change.

some of its disadvantages. I'd like to relate to you though

a story that my grandfather once told me. I guess which I

used to say that this is a white man's world. He said you,

he said you have to act, you have to think, you have to be

almost a white man. But he says, I want you to remember one

guess one of the things that I see among Indians is that,

914, we have not learned how to play the role. And I think

this is where a lot of our conflicts arise. So I would urge

that anything you can do to preserve what little history,

what little research that you can do-to acquire this kind of

know they existed until maybe 1953 or four or five. I'd like

ecutives to...to take over BIA, I was one of them. The

thing that we forgot to do, is we forgot to organize a

local...Indians. Even though I felt our ideas was good,

without relation, or relaying information down to local

areas we got hit and hit hard. We got clobbered. In order

to change a system, I think first you must isolate an issue,

that issue has to be geared to your heart, or some...an

issue that steps on your toes. As an example, let's take a

look at the Alaskan Claim. I feel that the Alaskan Claim

will be the biggest rape this country has ever seen. But

the lower forty-eight states are doing nothing about it as

far as being Indians. An Indian group gets into trouble,

other Indian groups have a hands-off kind of thing. Some-

where, somehow, organizations have to be formed...around

issues. Max Weber once said, "A creation of an organization,

you're also creating a second organization, a third organiza-

tiOn that'll eventually destroy you." This is good, that's

the way it should be...because I feel that organizations

should probably last no more than three or four years...then

new ideas have to emerge...new ideas, new concepts, new di-

rections have to make way. And I think that's one of the

S: ...reasons about the failure of the federal system, universities,

local systems and so forth. I think what you've heard the past

two evenings, and I think one thing that you should be vitally

interested in is how do you make the system that exists service

you. How do you make that system deliver the system...the ser-

vices that you need. The things you do, and the things you don't

do it's easy for some of us to get up here and tell you how to

do things, but in actuality, being realistic about it, when you'

begin to implement them...that's where it hurts. Idea, implemen-

tation and results are three distinct different things. The

federal system has not...has not worked because it has not been

able to implement. I'd like to take a crack at research. Research

is good to some extents...some other extents it is not good.

Communities such as this, I think when you let a researcher in,

I think that research should be based on your needs, community

needs, not because of some idea set at a university, wanting to

get his MA degree, PhD, or do some clinic research. And I think

that academicians in universities should keep that in mind. That

when they enter a community to do research...that they've got to

keep community needs at heart. Because if you want to change, you

need some valid information, and research can get that for you.

S: Last week I spent the week in New Orleans listening to pre-

sentations,different techniques of research, research papers

and so forth ...that was put on by the American Education

Research Association. There were about thirty papers present-

ed on Indians...only three of them were Indian. All thirty

of them should have been Indians. So these are the things

that we're looking at. I have no qualms about non-Indians

doing research, so long as they keep the needs of the com-

munity at heart, and they focus around that. Because what the

community gets they can use, and utilize effectively. And I

think that possibly that this in essence is what some of the

things I've heard here, some of the things that...some ideas

that I've.tried.to-convey to you. In short, and it may not

be what you want to hear...that's...I'm usually frank, to the

point, and I don't like to use too m any adjectives. One of

the things that you should realize and use...utilize, is the

university right here. Because in theory, this institution

was toset up, and all other institutions, were set up to

give service to the community, whether it be a social agency,

whether it be a university or whatever. And I guess in leav-

ing, or closing...I'd like to leave just one word with you.

That's what Benjamin Franklin once said. And he said that,

S: ..."If one person has rights," then he said that one person

who has rights, and probably in all actuality that somewhere

there is a right," but he says, "if we deny that one person

his right to think and speak," then he said, "what we have

is," he said "we have denied that people can govern themselves."

With that I would like to go.

U: I think what I'd like now is for you George, and Joel, and

Bob Gregory and Adolph to take the hotline and have questions.

Q: I'd like to go ahead and ask a question in relation to the

people last night. We did all the research, and after you heard

all the facts and cd@o 4, conclusions,I

assume you turned it back in to the federal government, and

I'd like to know if they have reviewed that

they may look into the problems that fttd in the way of the

Indian people attaining the goals that they have in mind as

far as education, technology, this type of thing, and if the

federal government has agreed to look into these problems,

who will administer these problems among the Lumbee people

here in Robeson County 7,- L\ .9

S: Let me react to that from a...I guess from a federal stand-

point, and I'll leave you some examples...different education,

and not just necessarily as a federal Indian education. We've

S: ...had research done since, that I'm real familiar with,

since 1928 with the Report. I look at that,

just a waste of funds and a waste of information, because

since that time it's all been rhetoric. The Highland/Hearst

Report to a great extent reenforced what he said back in

1928. I see the /. .f_ Associates Survey that was done

four or five years ago...I don't know if there's one federal

individual who's opened them to look at them. That's why I

guess to one extent that this kind of feedback is good,

because I think it has to be done at a-local area .And the

other thing that I've got to say I guess is that the agencies

the federal agencies respond to the situation.

U: Ouch. :

hope that the guy who makes the ultimate decision about where

the dollars go could not pick up the book and say, "I made

LUM 125 AB SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK MOORE HALL P .S .U. INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL DATE: MARCH 5, 1973 TAPE: ONE SIDE: ONE PAGE: ONE S: They're not just scarce posistions anybody -----------And in this sense I think there's something very very important to a lot of India)J.s., and very very good about the way that they got it. Just one other thing that I want to talk about, and that making a living for Indians, h, &-J ),_-r Now I think it's important, and perhaps you know. Uh, the Indians came here, came to Baltimore in the Second World War, and they were then the defense industry, Baltimore being a major industrial center. And really, as you go north from uh Robeson County, it's the first big industrial center that you're going to hit. And I suspect that's one of the reasons why so many stopped off in Baltimore and stayed there. Baltimore uh, really is quite a diversified industrial com munity. It uh, was once a port city, a major port, and still is a major port, but it also has many other things. A big GM plant, a big Bethlahem plant, it has a lot of small industries, it was well known for the needle trades. But the big thing that Indians went into after the Second World War, was something else happening in many cities throughout the United States. The bulding boom. There was a great deal of building going on in Baltimore, and many Indians when they came there, went into the building trade. Now there really are two uh, parts of the building trade. There were then, and probably

PAGE 2

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: still are. There's new construction, and there's the remodeling of old buildings. The unions then controled the new construction. And the remodeling, the unions in Baltimore didn't bother with. This was left for the non-union people, and that's where the Indians went. What this really means is that Lumbee Indians really took much lower pay 1/4,, A,d fu. than the union men were getting --'---'=----,~=i-~=~-=~,+-in the new construction. Their pay was considerably less. But it was still quite good pay. And I sort of feel quite strongly that the Indians generally in Baltimore really are not at all.at~the uh,,. poverty level. They were not three years ago, and they_cstill are not now. They're really not, uh, they're far from the unskilled type of many who are migrants to cities. They're people who really picked up the building trade skills, and a lot of other skills, and have done reasonably well in Baltimore. The point is though, even if they're not at the bottom, they only do moderately well in the city. I want to say one other thing about the uh, work of the Indians in Baltimore. One thing that struck me very strongly a few years ago, and has-come out particularly this summer. A lot of Indians of the Indians have joined unions. The unions in recent years have been very accepting of Indians,, And there is an Indian for example, who is the president of a steel workers local, a Lumbee Indian, president of a steel workers local a lot of shop stewards around there. The Indians feel very strongly about the importance of unions. Now that is a little different between now and several years ago. A few years ago, if they 2

PAGE 3

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: joined, maybe they joined because they had to. They were in union shops and had to join. Now a lot of them feel quite strongly about unions. And I this past swmner gave them some sort of hypo thetical questions. Like: If your boss say if your union wanted to go on a strike and for more money, and if the boss were to say to you "Don't go out with the union, I'm going to give you more pay." Would you stay on, or wouldn't you stay on? And almost uni,_,, versally among the Indians. L asl:ed ,ne,they_wouldn 1 t; stay out. They felt they needed the union in order to be able to be sure that if there was a pay raise, they would keep that. They saidthe boss after while wouldn't give them the I think this is one of the im portant things that Indians have learned in the city. I can add to a number of other things, and I'd be glad to respond to questions about the Indians. Esentially I want to say, in the area of acultur ation or what we call aculturation .•. I really feel that Indians have basically mad.atained their own group. You know esentially the Indians friends are the Indians have friends among other Indians. But it uh, this is something that Indians are begining to move away from in Baltimore. There are friends being picked up in other areas. But if you're going to talk about the basic friendship net works of Indians, you're going to say that most of the Indians basically nave friends among other Indians. Uh, this is what I would call uh., kind of structural pluralism you have in Baltimore. I want to point out to you that Baltimore is a very ethnic divided 3

PAGE 4

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: •. ,towa, Baltimore has all kinds of ethnic groups, Poles and Italians. Now what do you think the Italians think. The Italian friends are mostly among other Italians, and the Polish friends are mostly among other Polish. It is not unusual for the Indians to be thatway. But I have found the Indians reallymuchemare:'..,e receptive towards moving out toward people on the outside. So that I do think they're in a stage of transition now They're uh, feeling strongly about holding on to being Indian, and yet there is also there're many interesting things about people on the outside that Indians are begining to find out about. It is hard to predict any future as far as the Indians are concerned in Baltimore. I do think they will hold on to their Indianess, but I think there're going to continue to be all kinds of changes among them. And a number of them are just going to feel afterwhile marrying other people •. ,that maybe they don't want to be Indian, And this is something, that if a strong Indian movement develops over here, it's going to be as strong, it's going to be felt over there. And this will be one of the ways in which Indians can really feel strongly unified. M.C. Thank you very much. Dave do you want to get this out of here? NEW SPEAKER s: Maybe one good~thing about coming third, and almost last is maybe I can get to play the devil's advocate, and uh, and let you squirm for a minute, and turn to the light side. Went down to Wellington last summer to make a talk, and I was introduced in a peculiar way. 4

PAGE 5

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: And so I decided maybe I'll uh change that introduction tonight, and say I'm in Florida as a demographer, but after being intro duced as a Democrat uh, down in Wellington I just don't want to be known as a demographer in those terms. A couple little funny stories I'd like to tell to get your thought patterns on what we're trying to do in Robeson County. I know you must have heard numerous stories and accounts of the little "Johnny Jokes." Johnny comes in to mommy and daddy to ask various questions. The question that~1~~ 0 suppose has been used, and befuddled all children at some point in their lives, is where do babies come from? And so a couple of little stories of Johnny then, asking mommy where do babies come from? One, Johnny comes tearing in to mommy and says, "Hey momm, where did I come from?" And she says, Oh no! 'This poor child, is he ready.for life?" And she says, "Yeah, he's ready." So she took him in on the sofa and sat down and proceeded to tell him the story of life. About half way through, Johnny says,''Whoa mommy that's not what I mean. Billy comes from South Carolina where do I come from?" Well, Greig and Abe have talked about migration, where people originate and move to hither and there. The other little story, Johnny comes in with the same question, and says, "Hey mommy, where do babies come from?" "Oh my gosh! the same thing, is he ready?" Well, she says, "No, he's not ready. I can't tell him where babies come from." So she says, "Johnny it's like this." She says, d?Babies come from seeds. And God takes a seed and puts it in mommy 0 ls tummy, and that seed grows, and that's where babies come from." 5

PAGE 6

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: Well, that satisfied little Johnny deep enough. He went tearing out. Later that day, he was eating an apple, and when you're a hungry little boy eating an apple, sometimes you eat too deeply, and you find seeds. Ah he got one of those forward ideas when the bright light bulo come on blop seeds and babies. So he goes tearing out in the yard, digs himself a hole, and puts his apple seed in the whole :goes~away~~app;i>l,y. Didn't think about it any more until the next day when he came tearing out of his house, as he hit the ground, he saw that fresh mound of dirt. And that light bulb came on again, but sitting on that mound of dirt was the ugliest old toad frog that Johnny has ever seen in all.his life. And he looked at the toad frog, and the toad frog looked at Johnny, and he looked at the toad frog, and the toad you know you can go on all night and you get tired of looking. And finally he sunnned up all his courage, and said, "If I weren't your daddy I'd stomp the hell out of you." Now now we demographers study people, and I think that's the way I'd like for you to think of what we do. As we study people, and we study these three processes, as I've tried to stories about Johnny. We study about birth, we study about people dying, and we study about people moving. As I say, one of those stor ies has a defense for what I'm going to say. Do you know about the lion in:the,jungle? I thought I did until I started telling some students one day, and they corrected me so manytimes. You me when I get the story wrong. The lion woke up one morning 6 correct ~rl and_.,

PAGE 7

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: "I'm the king of the jungle." Says, "I'm going to go out and find out if that's not true." And so he went bombing through the jungle, and he came to a chimpanzee, and he said, "Chimpqnzee who's the king of the jungle?" And the chimpanzee looked at him and said, "You are oh mighty lion." And the lion beamed and threw out his chest even further, and walked on. He came to a skunk he says, "Skunk who's the king of the jungle?" Skunk says, "Oh you are oh mighty lion." And the lion was feeling pretty good, walking tall all the time. He came to a clearing in the jungle and came to an old elephant stand ing there grazing away in the trees. He said, "Elephant who's the king of the jungle?" And the elephant eating. He said, "Elephant, I'm going to ask you twice who's the king of the jungle?" And the elephant kept eating. "Elephant I'm going to ask you the last time, who's the king of the jungle?" The elephant took his snout or trunk, or whatever you call it reached down and caught the old lion around his stomach his belly, whatever you call it. Waled over to this big tree, and started slamming WHAM WHAM WHAM, now you can go on, you know, telling, again, all night so he put the lion down, and the lion went dragging off to the edge of the clearing, and he got to the safety of the trees, and he turned around and looked over his shoulder and said, "You didn't have to get so mad because you didn't know the right answer." Well, I guess I have to differ from my uh, two colleagues who have gone before me, because I'm not at a point to give you the right answers yet. I would like to take this opportunity 7

PAGE 8

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: to express our appreciation to all of you, and I hope we cap tured some of you in our studies. That's one thing that we've failed tp teach our students as we teach them how to do research projects, is to go back and to thank people for taking part. And so I do sincerely express our appreciation for the willingness of people in this county to take part. Four years ago a group of young PhDs embarked on a journey because they felt that being so bright with all new degrees that they ought to go out and seek the truth and find the right answers, happened to come upon the ideathat there was a need to discover further knowledge in the area of these "Johnny jokes" I suppose. And so we sat down to try to map out a plan of action where we could come to understand the process of why Johnnys ask questions. We became interested in Robeson County because Robeson County is in the book as one of the poorest counties in the nation, and yet at the same time, if you look at another set of books it is one of the richest counties in so far as the amount of agricultural products that are sold. So we were interested in a, can I say poor county, to see what's taken place. At the same time Robeson County was a unique county because it afforded us an op portunity to look not at the usual color breakdown, the racial breakdown of whites and blacks, but gave us a third group to consider. We could look not only at the whites and blacks, but also at Indians. So there was a second important reason why we were interested in the county. A third reason which finally captured our 8

PAGE 9

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: interest and brought us to this county to study families, was the fact that say in a demographer's language people language Robeson County is a rural county. As one looks at the storehouse of information where people have studied the peopling process over time, you find all the major studies, starting with the Indianapolis Study back in the 40s and coming to the Princeton Studies in the 50s, and the growth of American families in the 50s and 60s have been primarily with urban places big cities. And so we discovered what we thought then was a vacuum, in:,whattweeknow about the peopling process. That there were very few no major studies, let's put it that way, studying the peopling process in a rural county, a poor county, a tri-racial county. So we set out, and we were fortunate indeed to have the blessings of the National Institute of Child Health and Development. And they awarded us with funds that we might conduct a two-year study here in Robeson County. Well the other unique thing, :'while I'm talking about thec_unique things that we de cided to try to accomplish, and I think it will be the strongest part of the study that will emerge, and one which I think all of you along with us can be proud of. This will be one of the first major studies that has attempted to deal both with males and females in under standing the peopling process. The majority of the previous studies have attempted to gain data only from female response. And pre dominantly white female response. So we think we have an opportunity with the data which we have just completed the collection process 9

PAGE 10

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: ..• as some of you are probably aware, in the last two ot three weeks ago. We think we'll have some unique data, and we think we'll have a great deal that we can say to our country, and that we can say to you. So I look forward to coiiie.--back _ andr.telL yoi 5 -wha t we do find once we get some of the findings found. Let me take a few more minutes and _tell you some of the things that we are aprticularly interested in pursuing. I'll name some of the major variables that people have looked at before. trying to understand: the idea of residence, and where whether you live in a rural area, or an urban area: income-wise, and just tied up in a concept that sociologists call "social class." I know you must have read countless accounts of the relationship between the peopling process and one's social class. So we decided to come in and take a look at some other variables that haven't been explored in great detail. We wanted to try to understand people's values w~at they feell to be most important to them.Also, to look at what people think about various items, and what their attitudes are towards various issues to look at the goals, or the end results that people direct their daily lives towards. And perhaps most important of all was to look again at what sociologists call "social relationships." And we wanted to get some understanding as to what takes place between man and wife. And how this affects their behavior, particularly their behavior in the peopling process. So we uh, come in, and uh, I'm not going to ask you to identify yourself. If you were part of our survey you'll recognize some of the •.. the variables or questions then that we are pursuing along these lines, trying to get a goals, attitudes, values, and

PAGE 11

0 SUBJECT, LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER, DANFORD DIAL S: social relationships. And we have asked a couple of students to res pond as to how do they divide the labor in the household. Who carries out the trash, uh, who washes clothes, who spanks the kids, who decides to have kids And in turn, looking at these issues in relationship to many other variables. Who does what, who decides what, and what do you do with your family, and how does what you do with your family effect other parts of your individual life. Do you do things as a family, do you do things as an individual how does this effect the decission to have a family in the first place. Well uh, we have asked a number of question also about values or "value orientations" as we have expressed it. Those things that we think people hold to be important. Trying to decide if people have directed their thoughts to the future, are we living in the present, or are we clinging to the old and past. Not saying one is better than another, but simply wanting to see if we can find where people are. When I was in school years ago, one of the first things they tried to teach us as young demographers, was they used to to uh, come back and make some statement that a person general statements like religion, and .•. and social class cause one to have the size of family that one has. And that translated down into specifics sometimes, that Catholics have the most children because of their religion. And blacks have the most children because of the color of their skin. Uh, one can qnickly see how this has no real impact on what you do, so we need to go beyond that surface. Color of skin doesn't really affect what we do does it? Or is color of our skin symbolic of something else. Uh but .-tthen we have discovered now that it's not religion or Catho ... Catholicism as such that causes us to have children, 11

PAGE 12

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: butene family comes out of Puerto Rico is that that particular group of Catholics just didn't talk to each other, that is husbands and wives. And so one important part of what we're trying to look at then ..• is how much do husbands and wives talk to each other in Robeson County. Uh, I could go on and on and on telling you about uh, variables that we want to look at, and as the others have said, I think I'll stop, and say I'll be glad to talk to any of you to allay your fears that uh we don't know anybody in this county as individuals. Some persons have been concerned about the sensitivity of the issues,and uh, we just look upon it as trying to understand what a group of people uh think and feel, and how they are acting about the peopling process. M.C. Well thank you very much Dave. Uh, food ready? They say the foods ready, the coffee is hot, so why don't we have a coffee break, and then come back, and Gene Breakston will sort of he will wrap up, and then we'll have open discussion. v, M.C. Yeah, and Mrs. Hunt and •.. U: M.C. Yes, appreciate it very much. And uh, I see the Director of the Office of Communications of the Bureau of Indiart Affairs from Wash ington D.C., none other than the first Lumbee pilot of World War II, retired collml8nder, Timothy Oxendine. Come be with us again tomorrow night. I believe I saw W.J. Strickland around here. He's been up in 12

I'm only recognizing people who are out of town, all the rest of you, uh, you know you carry special recognition 365 days to the year. Thank you. I hope all of you will return tomorrow night, and bring someone with you because we will lose a few tomorrow to Raleigh on the double voting issue might not be back in time for the session, so that means that everyone needs to get on the telephone tomorrow, and invite at least five people back for tomorrow night because we'll have something real good for you tomorrow night. Brenda Brooks: If there's anybody interested in going to Raleigh tomorrow, we will be leaving at nine-thirty in the morning leaving from LRDA. We have money for gas if you will drive. If you can't drive, and you'll go we'll feed you on the way, but s0('(?: !ti> ( ,:t.(1...)---t..., 17 M.C. But you're going to be back for the session? B.B. Yes sir. U: That double voting thing is those of you who have heard me before know it's very important. B: We'll break double voting and be right back. M.C. I say, are you going to be back for the session? O.k. well Gene Breakston is now going to tell us what we said. G: I think rather than simply give you back what was said, that perhaps uh, it'd insult your intelligence if I did that, but uh, rather try to bring it together, a framework that maybe we can, uh that maybe we can take some shots at it. Before I do this uh, uh, Professor peck, if I have 13

PAGE 14

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: your permission, may I recognize two people? P: Sure. G: Uh, Venus Jacobs, and Don Locklear, who I understand worked.very hard in getting out this marvelous crowd tonight. And I think all of us appreciate having somebody to talk to, and they're working on that. If I were an outsider, say from England or France, and I was asked to come in and study the Indian situation in America, and more specifically, the Indian situation here I might begin by making an inventory of the assets and liabilities of your situation. Because I may be an outsider, I would run the risk of making some inaccurate statements because I would not note the specific details. You know some things about your situation that no outsider could hope to know. On the other hand, I would also perhaps bring to the study a sense of ob jectivity, and perhaps a sense of being detached that might be useful in looking at where you are, and what you hope to be that might not be gained by a person who was too closely associated with the situation. Much like I ask a person who I consider to be very sharp, and very tough, and very honest to tell me a few weeks ago how he thought I was doing in my job. Now when you do that you must get prepared to uh hear some things that may not be very flattering. I asked him to give me the good news, and the bad news. Uh, may I tell a story they 1 re 14

PAGE 15

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: ..• a bunch of good news and bad news jokes. The airline pilot who announces while they're in the air to the people in the cabin. He says, "I want to announce some good news and some bad news. I'm going to give you the bad news first. We are hopelessly lost. And now for the good news we're making ex cellent speed." Well let's look at the bad news of the Indian situation in America. And uh perhaps also, more specifically, your own. As for the liabilities, Indians in North Carolina are a rural people. Rural life has obvious advantages, such as: privacy, no smog, no traffic jams, friendly neighbors, you can go on listing them. But it has some obvious disadvantages. Services such as: phone, water, mail delivery, medical facilities, schools are costly to provide when people are widely dispersed. In some cases> in some rural areas .•. some of these services are not available at all. Some Indians for exampre in the peopling process in New Mexico must go a hundred miles to the nearest hospital to have a baby delivered in a hospital. They're that far from a doctor that far from medical facilities. Paved r roads and rural rectification, it shames us a great deal, but they;re still disadvantages. Rural schools, rural churches tend to be smaller, and theytre2~ess less able than their city counterparts to provide some services for their constituents. Rural people in recent years have received less and less political attention. I was associated with an evaluation of 15

PAGE 16

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: Federal Programs for three years. That program was brought into being essentially to see that rural people got some of the services that urban people were getting. And I would say the present administration also tends to give more attention to urban problems than to rural. So the fact that you're rural in some ways is a liability. True, as Indians you are a third group in a society which tends to recognize only two groups black and white. Your historic struggle to maintain a separate identity with separate churches and separate schools is well known and needs little elaboration here. The point is, that when the nation as a whole considers inter-group relations, it tends to think in terms of black and white. A third defecit is, that relative to whites, Indians as a category are not wealthy. If you were, you would be better able to effectively control your destiny. Here in Pembroke you have been able to make some economic gains which are impressive. I believe that is also true of the Indians in Sampson County, and also accord ing to the reports tonight, uh, also in Baltimore. In Halifax County, and Warren County, North Carolina, in Washington County, Alabama where I've been studying Indians there, and in San Duval County, New Mexico Indians are poorest of the poor. Third or fourth, historicaly Indians have had educational defecits. Indian schools were often a thrid system of schools in many counties, poorly financed by the government, and often paid for 16

PAGE 17

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: out of the meager resources of Indians themselves. If they wanted schools they had to do it themselves. This is a matter of historic record. Books and other learning resources were scarce, teachers were poorly paid students were often unable to attend school regularly because they were needed to work on farms. That still is a problem in a society, where if you're born poor, and you want to move up the economic ladder you need to get quality education. And lacking quality education, you have problems. It has already been mentioned that teaching kids in school was a problem in some areas it is a problem in rural areas it is a problem in the cities as well. Dr. Mcclosky has mentioned a possible preoblem area for Indians in Baltimore the decline of the church. Historicaly, if you look at the records the church has been an important element in fostering a sense of identity. You look back at the early indian schools that were established in this county and Sampson County, and elsewhere in the state many times they were an outgrowth of thedSJinda~csitho0Lofcsoioe~otheg20:tganization. So the sense of Indian identity has been inextricably linked with the viability and strength of the church. I see those as a few deficits, problem areas, uh, negative areas if you wish. Now for the assets. Indians now enjoy the national reputation among many whites, of being cultural heroes. Many whites are now quite happy to find that one of their ancestors was an Indian. As a matter of fact, there are so many whites that claim Indian 17

PAGE 18

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: ancestors, that one must beleive that those early Indians must have been real men and real women. It is a fact that Indians have come to be heroes of the American past. And so I think that there is now a rese,,wir of good,.,,.,ill which can be tapped whenever appeals are made for resources. I think the sense the sense in which Indians have been forced into segregated facilities schools, churches, has been a mixed kind of blessing, for the churches and the schools have become training grounds for leaders. It would be difficult to estimate the impact Pembroke State University has had upon the Indians of the state and elsewhere. As has already been mentioned, I forget who it was that said it this university provided young sters with role models. They they could see that an Indian could grow up to be a preofessor in a university. And Indian could do something uh earn a good living, be respected. And I think the fact that right here in this county Indians had .. ,-" their own institution of higher lea:tming has been a very very important thing. And I don't know how to estimate the total impact of of this school. For example, the Tallowwa Indian School in its early years was almost entirely staffed by per sons who had originally gotten their training here. You've been able to squire land a.good bit of it. I went just to get some feel for this to the uh, old record books today, and looked at some of these early deeds that were given to Indians. You held 18

PAGE 19

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: on to land since the seventeen hundreds. Uh, you said that home is Robeson County. Here's where people own land. Here's where people have put down their roots. It's been an important thing. And I would say if I might give any advice for the future aquire land, and hold on to it. There is an important sense in America, in which the land owner has had a better deal than the person who did not own land. County officials recog nize people who own land. You tend to get a better deal in courts. And uh, so I think that this has been an important part of your heritage. Dr. Peck has mentioned your resources which enables you to adapt to the stress of urban living. This sense of having to struggle for your identity here, and maintain your Indianness gave you a strength that has come into uh, good use in Baltimore. Dr. Mcclosky has mentioned the role of the Indian Center. And I think he has also touched an important area when he mentioned the occupational aspirations of Indians. Had a young man ride with me today. He says, I don't know what I'm going to do. Said I'm thinking about learning brick laying. And I encouraged him in this. I said you aquire that skill and you'll be able to support yourself anywhere you go in the coun country if you learn to be a good one. But then there's been a shift, away from uh uh, from the trades the skill trades, to the professional, and perhaps this is told to him. Uh, it was mentioned also that you have learned the worthwhileness of pulling together. Uh I think this is terribly important. It 19

PAGE 20

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL G: manifests itself in union orientation in Baltimore. The Indians in Robeson County, Sampson County somewhat later in Halifax and Warren County did establish an institute, did learn to pull together. Had their schools, their churches, their political organizations this has not been true of all Indian groups. One of the large Indian groups in South Alabama so far as I know, never established an Indian club, never established many of their own churches nor their own uh system of higher education. And as a result, they have not been able to adjust as well to some of the stresses of urban life. Well, as I see it, these are some of the pluses and some of the minuses in assessing the situation. I hope that this. provides a vehicle for some of the questions that you might want to ?the ~rs_20f sthe1paim.el.c0 and-~ st.ol;d Me_J1d~,_-_ fehis? M.C.

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL M.C pf~ 0F ~S uh, what effects as a person who looks in on our county what effects do you think double voting has had on the culture.in the community the like of Indian communities? S: That's a toughfy uh you can get in trouble on that one. O.k. as long as you had your own separate school system, and sort of by agreement, "X" number of jobs were Indian jobs uh, it kept you in the middle put a ceiling on you, but it was a in many ways a pretty happy middle. With the enforced desegregation, not only of students, but of faculty, coupled with a surplus of public school teachers uh, that monopoly in a sense, of jobs, is seriously threatened. Uh, tennure is a very shaky thing. With, as a result and it isn't only in Robeson County, it's all over the state, and it's in every state that has gone through this desegregation thing. O.k. so that that sort of sets the pic ture of your in a sense, the Indian posistion, the Indian economic posistion in the county is in jepordy. Uh, the double voting issue comes in because it limits and minimizes the Indian votes in deciding who's going to make the decissions about who has the jobs. Be these posistions based on deciding what kind of tests do we give people. Do we take a seven foot ruler and say o.k. everybody who's seven feet tall, they pass, and if you're under then we'll rank you below it, or whatever the test may be. The people who are going to decide that test and how to use it uh, are the people who are elected in this county END SIDE ONE, TAPE ONE 22

But that is my first question don't you think norms are misleading? Two: don't you think that the only way we're ever going to get any where, say double voting, and I just feel that a lot of the conclu sions aren't very strong ... but don't you think we're going to have to take the summations that you come up with and put them to work, and the next time we have a seminar you be sitting in the front row, and me be standing there? You know, reverse the roles? And uh, I know all you guys are admirable, and idealists probably, but it kind of offends me that all of us are sitting here you know, and you're standing there. Somehow, taking your conclusions, don't you think we have to reverse that role especially in this city and-the county, any of us? Well I state questions S: I would like to see uh very much, the roles reversed. And I you feel, of course still speaking about Baltimore ..• ! would like to see 23

PAGE 24

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: studies of the Indian people in Baltimore done by the Indian center, done by Indian people. And I think they are begining to. Now one of the first you know you can do uh, studies without any back ground, you know do it, and then you may come out with information which may not be very reliable. So right in the begining there may have to be help, some some help given. And I don't know why some of the Indians who are, uh, are well educated here can't help them out in Baltimore too, in the Indian Studies Center. And tell them some of the ways in which studies might be done. But I do agree with you. I think it would be very important for Indians to really be doing most of these studies of the Indian people. I am uh I feel somewhat guilty about this, and uh I know I wilL,say--that I do try, and where ever I can I stay connected with the Indian-community, and when called upon ! try to help out in whatever they want me to help out. But you make a good point, and I do hope there's more there're more Indians who will be involved in doing this rather than people from the outside coming and saying things. Well I still think that Mr; Breakston said Dr. Breakston said it is important for outsiders also to be looking. It's not that we can fully understand as outsiders. I would never pretend that I fully understand. But I think there's a certain kind of outsiders view which I try to maintain as truthfully and objectively as I can. But there's a little bit more, and I do think the insider's view is very very important, and would be much more illuminating than my view. D: Let me just throw one thing in. As an anthropologist, when we look at 24

PAGE 25

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: behavior, we find people sort of spread all over the map, and tending, most of them, to fall in a particular area. Uh, the feeling that a man is a man. Uh, there may be some homosexuals among the Indians. Uh, obviously they don't feel this, but most Indians are going to sit somewhere here in the middle. Uh, so that's the first thing we do. And then as an anthropologist, the second thing we do, is we go down into the situation, and we try and behave in tenns of those things that we've seen. And the first thing we find out is that we've made a mistake, and we say Peck you're a darn fool. And so they straighten us out if if they can. And if they have good feelings toward us. They straighten us out. So in this kind of a contrast that we try and describe, uh, this range of behavior, in terms of its central tendencies. Uh, on the other point, I'd be I'd be honored to be invited to your seminar. O: May I say it offends me somewhat to be standing. Uh, I take the philosophy never stand when you can sit down, and never sit down when you can lie down, uh so I would much rather be sitting down, and I would much rather be having you hold talking. But uh, let me say in fairness to persons who arranged this program, I did not, I'm simply an invited guest. Uh, this is simply one thing that I have become interested in historic development of the Indian.people. Uh, one other thing I studied was occupational education, and I was asked to evaluate oc cupational education, in this case for whites, and when the my research was over I was invited to Washington, and they made me stand and tell what I'd found out. And I hope that's what I what we're doing here. 25

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFO~ DIAL D: We're just I'm just standing here telling yo~ some of the things I saw. U: Yeah, and I I wanted directed the question to you in a friendly manner, I didn't mean it as an affront. But I think that's the this concept is what's going to be our salvation. When we ask those kind of questions, and you know, and take your answers and evaluate them and put them to use. And uh .•. you know, we've been a frustrated people, and some of our most brilliant people, you know, guys who are got to start asking questions, and we've got to, you know, get away from this plantation type thing, where if uh, you're a so-called W-A-S-p we can't let it "" S: Not entirely __ ,C14~.c=c:::::::=====-=,c--=----===---,_ U: I mean we've got to get away from that idea that we can't ask those kind of questions you know, in a friendly manner. S: That's right. U: We have problems here. Q: I would like to ask a question that what happens to your study. Uh, is it just a year or two years of reprieve or enlightenment, or do you plan to put the information which you have gained hopefully in the right hands to correct some of the injustices or some of the short comings or deficits which you might find? ""~ \lo .J ::b,.il,, rY':&--1 A; For our part, we would certainly hope the fact that the Federal Government required that we provide the information back to you, as well as providing it.to the Federal Agency that has control over some 26

PAGE 27

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL A: of the programs so that there can be changes positive changes made where there are defects. B: Well I uh I feel basically, in Baltimore, that the work is not correcting some of the inequities in Baltimore needs to be done by the Indian people, or the Indian center. They must do it, and all I can feel is that I've made my study available not only to the Indian center, but have made it available to a lot of people who helped me in the course of the study the Indians gave them copies of it. And I visit the center and visit my friends and talk with them and want to be available to them if they need the help. I think that's one of the advantages of my situation. That I remained in Baltimore, it wasn't just a study for one year. I stay there and continue my contacts with them. I think the Indian people basically have to do this themselves, and want to do it themselves. The Indian center doesn't want me to come in and tell them how to do anything at all. They're interested in my the findings of my study. But they want to do it themselves, and I think that's the way it will have to be done. C: On mine, mine really involved two phases. The first phase was as a starving graduate student ! paid all my own bills, and barely did that, and so I couldn't help anybody but myself. I got a disertation out of that, and that's something that I paid for, and it's also something that you have given to me. And for this there is a debt. 27

PAGE 28

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL C: The second part of the study was there was money in that. That was part of the National -Study of American Indian Education. Uh, and I was a one of I think six center directors. And I had I think the highest porportion of Indian employees of any of the centers. Every single one of my interviewers was Indian. Uh, they received some training, not a whole lot, but they received some, and many of them have gone on to be then skilled interviewers in other studies that came through here. Uh, the output from this that study went into a final report to congress, and to the President. Uh, not an awful lot has come from it, but the new Indian Education Bill that some of you know about, that's been passed, but hasn't gotten the funds paid for was influenced with some of the information from that national study. And on a couple of key issues it was influenced. And one of them was the way in which an Indian is defined. Because up until that time, pretty much, when it came to funding, an Indian was defined as a member of the B.I.A. role. On the new Indian Education Act, he's defined as any group that the state recognizes as an Indian is elligible. Now this is a real crucial shift, and it wouldn't have happened I don't think without the sup porting evidence from the National Study of Indian Education. Uh, some other changes that have happened in the county as a result of that study. I think there's a new awareness and emphasis on the importance to you of Indian history. And not only to you, but to everybody else in the county because they're living in this county too, and they want to know something about Indians. Uh, this isn't moving perhaps as fast 28

PAGE 29

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL C: as we would like it to, but it is moving. And so there's some things going there. I think I also am, and have been a re source for people down here. Uh, and would like to be more of a resource. But I think that best of all, I would like to be run off have somebody who is more qualified, who's Indian and they don't need me. Q: Was uh, Federal-Indian Policy part of your basis in your study? I know that historical part comes tomorrow night, but uh, I was just wondering if that business of people here getting ' caught between Federal Indian Policy and the state, and their reaction to it caused them to, I guess in a lot of cases, caused somewhat a disapointment in Indian leadership. I think that's probably more of a key than anything else in my study. A: See, it usually never came up directly, but was always there. Uh, and I went through all sorts of flack on the national study because uh, the Lumbee didn't fit the mold. Uh, without federal funding, without federal payments, your income was higher than most Indians. Without federal B.1.A. schools, your education level was way above other Indians. Uh, you just didn't behave like uh a lot of the Indians in the United States should be have. Even those in tri-racial situations, you didn't didn't fit the pattern. And one of the big differences is, other Indians in tri-racial situations tend to be in a tri-racial 29

PAGE 30

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL A: situation with whites, Spanish-American, Indian, they're on the bottom. And the Lumbee _....!Q~""!>!.l:'d
PAGE 31

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL A: group when we came in. And uh we found the Indians to be the most cooperative. .c::::::-,, ./ B: I don't know what I can make of that one. Q: ---p-cl,,--'~,-1.--~--~'..:,~:\-e ____ your study. C: Now we were to be honest,,,we we went to three or four years ago when we thought aoout-coming down to Robeson County, ~-~>,,__~~,_~%=H"\------=t=hat we'll blast in there and get a lots C ,i, \ of white interviews done we'll have trouble with the Indians and the blacks. We'll just have to do the best we can. Well, we blasted in here and got one hundred percent support from the Indians, a high amount of support from the blacks, and poor support from the whites. D: I'm not sure your request is particularly appropriate to Baltimore, but I will answer it in a couple of ways anyhow. Let me say as far as the Indians were concerned, I really got a very friendly reception. You know, until people got used to me, and thought perhaps I was a cop, or something, until they got used to me, uh un my university connection really paved the way, and my grey hair paved the way. Uh, Indians feel uh, respect for-old pemple.-My 0 grey hair was in no way a hinderance. Maybe it kept me from some of the bar drinking parties, uh, they didn't invite me, but otherwise my reception was very good, very friendly, and there were only a few who I felt didn't trust me after awhile, and I didn't and I didn't thrust myself too strongly on them. I will say about some of the outsiders though, and their :n

PAGE 32

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: thoughts. You know, there're a lot of, uh, in this area of Baltimore most of the shopkeepers are not Indian. There are a few Indians there. Most of them are not Indian. I did talk with shopkeepers just to get what they knew about, what they thought about, and a lot of them were amazed that I thought it worthwhile to study Indians, and there was some problem with them, and they had some problems with Indians too. But uh, by and large, I don't really feel they counted very much as far as my being able to understand the Indians. And I had made the point in my study that I think it would be very good if the Indians were willing to take over some of the stores in this area. Really run some of the businesses there. It would make a big difference in the area if the Indians ran some of the businesses themselves in that area. Now I will say about authorities in Baltimore. Authorities in Baltimore are very eager to get information about Indians. They really are, they know there's a big Indian community there. From time to time there have been difficulties with Indians. The Indians uh when uh, pushed by police, they!ll push back, and it gets to be a problem as far as the person concerned. They were re ally ! went to talk to a number of authorities again, just to look into the question of trouble with the law, and see 32

PAGE 33

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: the extent to which some of these officials connected with the law were to hear about Indians and so on. I really was surprised at one thing, that while everybody knew about Indians, they really they really didn't know many Indians. They really didn't have much experience with Indians. I can remember a conversation with the head of the prQbation department of the main court in B_altimore, and'he said he knew the Indians very well, but then he looked up his records as to the number of Indians who had been referred to him uh, to put on probation in 1969. Of 1313 cases, I remember the figure, there were eleven Indians he had all together. That is, not many Indians, the Indians are well known. The authorities know them vexy well, but not that many really get in trouble with the law. But the uh, administration generally is very interested in the Indians. I was amused at the uh opening meeting, the inaugural of thesindian Center. The commissioner of police went to the inaugural of the Indian Center, and a number of other city officials were there too. So uh, this is what I can tell you about Baltimore anyway. E: In my work here in the county, basically I worked with Indians, and I worked where you still had Indian schools. Uh, to do that I had to clear and get permission from young Allen, and he gave it. He gave it in good faith, and did not in any way inhibit or encumber my study. I think this is an 33

PAGE 34

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWERL DANFORD DIAL E: important thing at least for me to remember. Uh, at a later date I sent some people down to try and get some economic in formation from Lumberton, from the county, and you have never seen so many papers lost. It was just incredible. And so what I figured out, is that when a study is being done, that the power structure perceives as not threatening or harming them, it's pretty cooperative. But if they see or think that it might harm them, that it might not just build up the In dians but build up the Indians at the white power structure's expense, then they're going to resist. And I think this has been basically the pattern that I have observed. I think cer tainly the uh there have been a lot of you mention the civil rights appearance that you had last September uh, tended to reenforce this as kind of a conclusion. That where it if it doesn't matter they're more than willing to cooperate. If it 'll do some good, but not cost them anything still they'll cooperate. But where they perceive it as a threat to their posistion then the cooperation comes much harder. There pro bably are some notable exceptions to this in the county gov ernment though. This is this is again, one of thes~sgen eraiities that I mentioned that's describing that centeral part. But there are people
PAGE 35

$UBJ1ECT I LUKBEE :J!'EEPBACK: INTElW!EWEll,; DANii'm DLA!, E: I should say that most of my study has been of a historic na ture, or has dealt with economic data. Most of this is a mat ter of public record, so that actually if I wish go in and demand to see the titles. Or I could demand to see total as sessments. I will say that at the interpersonal level I have found county officials to be most cooperative. And under standably, these are persons who must run for re~election. They don't want any flippant careless statement to be repeated outside the any group. And and -------------so uh, I am an outsider to them. You see, there are grave and serious cleveages among whites. And uh, so uh, sometimes a sociologist is not exactly a loved person by the power struc ture because he represents potentially a threat. Oh, one other thing I meant. I have never yet started a study with the Lumbee Indians that I did not have to go through a two or three hour period, but I guess I could best accredit that to sermons on why I shouldn'r be doing what I want to do. Uh, usually quite well thought out and quite justified, but when that is through if I still want to do it, and if they agree to do it boy you've got somebody behind you one-hundred per cent. This has been a you know, it just I mean they're, they're really behind you, and really going to help you. This is I think maybe a characteristic thing down here. 35

PAGE 36

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL Q: I was just wanting to ask a question about a uh group of In dians they just cluster you know, like you marked it off down here? My experience time this is my home, where I was brought up here. What brings about, what causes the, the Indians to cluster like that together you know. Don't you think there's something which has caused them to cluster like that? The en vironment that we come up in this section? It ought not to have been like that to start with. This is what I had learned. Why would I why would we want to cluster together like that? Don't you think we was barred the bars was put up on us that causes us to have to be like that? A: Yeah, you're Q: It ought not to have been like that to start with. A: Well, what you're saying is why whay have the Indians sort of stayed in their group? Q: Yeah, that's the thing. A: Well, you've had some legal bars on miscegenation, you've had economic bars uh, I think you maybe have also had a deep love for the land. I mean there's there's a thing a thing about being here, and being in the land that's that's special. Uh, you might you know 36

PAGE 37

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: D!NFORD DIAL Q: I think that's that's what we're trying to tear down now the bars keeping us out where we can have our privelege and go, you know. We ought i'm going to take me a list of what has been said. I remember I'm from Robeson, this is my hometown. I remember I don't know who it was he cmae from Baltimore, and he didn't come down to get with the best of our leaders to get his information. He got some he got somebody there to write it that wasn't you might say he was he was one that laied out on the street somewhere. This is where a lot of people get their information from this type of people, then they begin to write about the Indians you see. A: Um huh I remember Q: I think I think you need to watch what's did. He came to me at Lumberton this man come from Baltimore, he didn't get what I call the best of our Indian people. He got what I call, you know, what I just described. -c::::::--:::::::::::,, /. = He didn't go to church, but these are the ones that conducted this information to him. This is not the best of our people. A: No. But I think as a as a behavioral scientist, it's impor tant to get that described. But if you're going to be honest about your work you get the whole range. Q: Yeah. 37

PAGE 38

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL A: And you try and describe where most people are. And maybe you say, you know, you say those people are here, there's some over here, and some over there but most people are here. This is what we try to do. Q: All I'll say now get this, I'm an,Indian. I'm proud of my' 0 _•self. But if someone calls us like this about 1964 ._. ,..(\ right in that area. I worked in Lumberton, I had on a white shirt, sleeves rolled up, clean pants. This is what we are living and what we must get rid of. I think all we Indians wa want is is is the is the power structure to open the way. Recognize that this this is we're moving forward. I don't know hardly how to direct questions see, but I know you know, how to put it put it accross. A: Yeah. Q: Uh, I had see this is some of the Tu"'!:."' we Indians in this f<>1te. area has had to:-u:; and it's kept us poor. That's why we are poor. But we want the power machine to open up to us let us have the same opportunity the white race has. I want to walk down the street with you just like another man. But we haven't had that privelege. I had a seat up there at Lumberton about 1964. I had a seat on this.stool up there at the counter. I C.t>_\\~_ for a ice cream -nff'WftBfr: A young girl, she acted like she didn't hear me.

I went to school, I had seven years of grade school. And it burns me when you begin to talk about how the poor Indians have been treated that's why we are. poor. And I don't know how to say this, just like I'm a saying it tonight. I know what the teachers told me when I was a little boy how they had to get their education. Yes that's what's got us poor. I'm ashamed of it, but a lot of times the white people don't know what we're come to here.

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIE.WER: DANFORD DIAL A: have to leave. When they leave, if they're bright, they're well educated if they go into the bigger world, not just the white world, but the bigger world then they really have some problems. Uh, your female, twenty-seven or twenty-, eight have a masters or a PhD, and no husband awyou're Indian you've got a real problem because there aren't un married Indian males back home with the same kind of education the same kind of background. Uh, and characteristic with Indians '!fo who administer the who bureaucracy, the establishment, the uh, jobs that are bigger than just Pembroke are caught in a bind. They're caught in an acultural crunch. Because in side the feelings are Indian, the responses, their you know, in their trust that they're Indian. But they have to in order to do their job they have to stop being Indian and thinking Indian to think bureaucrat. Or think uh sales manager. They have to they get into a funny kind of climate. And this is one reason why inBaltimore the Indians come in, their economic posistion raises up very fast, very well, very solid, and then they hit a spot. And in order to go beyond that spot they have to stop being Indian and most of them can't do that.

PAGE 45

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL B: I'd like to speak to that just a minute if I may Mr. Peck. Seems to me like the questions have _______ graded social adjustments the Indian has to make. It seems to me that one of the biggest that I've observed has been to accept himself and to adjust himself to being Indian first. Once you get over that hurdle you don't have to think sales manager, and manag erial and whatever else. You can think just as any other per son then once you get adjusted to yourself as being Indian. And not something closer to being white or something near to being black that you are an entity and that entity happens to be Indian. C: I uh I think you're right. It is speaking of Baltimore, ~=---=====::e,-...,,----;because I think it is a uh, -.............. the major problem identity. And that's why I, when I began talking I choose to talk about identity ~,,,.,( o-f :-;,,.,,,,__ ch; ,.lj' cf/4,f /2-w.. c &I so I might add something else about Baltimore as a major problem. The city is a hard place to raise kids, and one of the reasons people say 0 I wish I could come back home and live in Robeson County is that it is hard to bring up kids. People who don't make much money, and the Indians, while they're far from the bottom of the ladder, still don't make much money. They can't live in really

There are nice areas, if you move to the suburbs around Baltimore. _.p.,=-+"-~!-~'---~C&=s~+-,___h,,.,,.___.yvyy~=c..h=-~ for living. So it's just hard to raise kids in the city. It's not an easy life for them. I suppose they do have good jobs, or feel they have good jobs or a lot more would be coming home than do come home. There'still is a stable community in Baltimore. But any time you talk to them the answer that anybody would give to you it's just hard to bring up kids in a city like that and I agree with them. It is hard to bring up kids in a city like Baltimore. M.C. It's after ten o'clock this is a lot later than I thought we were going to go, so if we could have just two more questQ: ions or one more.

Uh, you can go to church, and you can drive up and down the road,,.go to work, ! mean, you know M.C. With this one, I think I would like to wind it up and say enough for tonight.

LUM 12SAB SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK MOORE HALL INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL DATE: MARCH S, 1973 TAPE: TWO SIDE: ONE A: You're dealing more with the <>-c.w.Q. orientation, more with, uh, well last night toward the end, I think a really important question was raised that we didn't answer. And that was the question of what can be done about opening up the power structure, opening up the way things are done in the county to perhaps give the Indians more voice give the Indians a little bit better break, give the Indians perhaps more importantly, some of things that they feel they want rather than the things that they're told they ought to have. Uh, and tonight I think it's going to be directed very specifically towards answering in a way that kind of question. I don't think we can give you a magic pill, or give you a magi~ button or any thing like that, but I think as a group as a group we can make some recommendations for somethings that you can do that might work. Uh, the first speaker is going to be Professor Adolf Dial, who all of you know. He's going to cover a little

PAGE 49

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL A: bit about history, some of the significant dates in terms of the Indians, some of the significant lives that haveshaped the way Indians are in North Carolina. And so it brings it is a historical picture to bring us up to the present. Follow ing him, Joel Owl, who many of you know, is going to give you some of his thoughts about the Pan-Indian Movement. I under stand he's got some slides also of the Lumbee Homecoming, and of some of the other kinds of Indian celebrations that you've participated in and been to. And winding up our speakers to night is going to be Bob Gregory, who is going to talk speci fically to community organization, and perhaps some of the things that you can do to begin to change things a little bit. George Stout is going to be the reactor the summarizer for tonight. George has been George is with Bureau of Indian Affairs, he's Creek and Seminole, and I met him before hegot to the big time. And he is, I think, one of the most concerned people I know in terms of changing the way Indians have been treated, and changing the posistion that Indians have held to this night, in American society. Again we are going to break after the third speaker, and have a quick cup of coffee, a few cookies, and then come back, George will sort of wrap things up, and we'll go into a general discussion session. as we did last night. Incidently, I in looking through the

PAGE 50

SUllJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DI.AL A: notes that we~e taken, my wife took very good notes last night, I was impressed with the kinds of questions that were coming out, and the kinds of concern that were behind the questions. This has been an important experience for me, to come back down, and to open up, and to get the discussion back from you. To get really, you know, in a sense this is our feedback to you, but we're really getting some feedback from you. And come the next go around of research, or one, one of your gentleman tells me-maybe the next go around of research, he should be the project director, and I should be working for him and maybe that's right. Maybe that can happen, O.k. I think I'll start off then handing it over to Professor Dial Adolph. D: Thank you Dr. Peck, I'll be horse if I don't close this door before I finish can't stand the draft. Then you can open it when I 1 4 vi --~ .,. , Gre_gor_y_ .....__,,._ said no more than twenty minutes o.k. Greg. I believe one of the problems that's been facing the Lumbee Indians over the many years, is this problem of identity. This problem of a. name. And in dealing with some of the legislation tonight, I shall mention several bills which dealt with this business of a name for the Lumbee Indians or for the Indians of Robeson County Robeson and adjoining counties if you please. What

PAGE 51

SUBJECT : LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: is an Indian anyway? :r:.;:, "'"""'" ""',NV"\.,.,"'"'\' , Pulitzer Prize winner, who wrote, _,'<:\._,,,,"'~'""' ,,..,,,..,_-'-m-'--'-"'""'J"'e.,~_,..,,,.w+-_' _,.,..,'t_.m .. 4=.-said at the Tenth Convocation two years ago, sponsored by the American Indian Historical Society, with headquarters at 1451 --<-"-'--------Ave., San Francisco "An American Indian is,.an-idea,. it's what one believes himself to be." And we could say, "What does an Indian look like?" And ? IJI./~.,, Lee says, "I have often heard the phrase, that he doesn't look Indian. I've often wondered what an Indian is supposed to look like. To an outsider he probably looks like the Holly wood I;;,, nJ , but how many people really know. I've met -~~~-people from all tribes. Some look oriental, some have blond hair and blue eyes, some dark eyes, and some stright black hair. To me they're all Indians. Not because of their physical make-up, or because they have a roll stating that they are Indians, but because he is interested in what happens to his people. He suffers whenever his people suffer. He enjoys him self when he is around his people. And Indian looks like an Indian not from the outside, but from the inside where it re ally counts. I think we have enough discrimination from the outside why practice it among ourselves. An Indian is an \e<> ').b Indian no matter what he 1.-li!s like. The problem is not his, but rather the problem of the person who makes the statement st

PAGE 52

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: that he doesn't look Indian. It makes no difference what he looks like as long as our hearts and feelings look In dian." I like that I like that very much. If you remember that tonight, and you don't get anything else out of this session, I think it will be worth your time here. Let us deal with some of the historical dates, and let me say that I am not speaking to scholars, I'm speaking more to the lay men at this point. I'm not speaking to scholars, I'm speak ing to laymen. And if you know everything I say, why just take it easy for awhile until the next speaker comes along. I'd like to begin with 1587 because of John White's lost col ony. All of you are familiar with the three early English voyage and the third, John White's Lost Colony, which of course the colony was lost. You know, when he left in 1587, and returned in 1590 he did not find the colony. Keep in mind that I only have a few minutes. So he was going to Croatan the next day, he and the captain, but the captain, something happened to the ship, and he advised him against it, and they didn't make the trip to Croatan. Maybe the lost colony was there. Well, Croatan Indians as a tribe didn't inhabit Croatan Island they were Hatterus Indians. And perhaps when Hamilton McMillan put his bill through in 1885 designating Indians here

PAGE 53

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: as Croatan Indians if he had come up with Hatterus Indians he would have saved a lot of legislation, and a lot of time over the many many years. Now I'm not suggesting another change at this point ! want to make that clear. The sixteen hundreds is pretty much a blank century. Very little happened as far as recorded history goes. Uh, we have an account of Morgan Jones but we can't rely on what he said too much. So it's pretty much a blank period, but maybe the people were migrating in this direction from Roanoke. 17O9 all of you know that's the first North Carolina historian, John Lawson, speaking of the Hatterus Indians. Talk about these people who speak in the book who have blue eyes and blond hair, or who talk in the book, and speak the English language. Or maybe he was talking about some of their people. And only hit on highlights lllll!_::b....,.L,,.,i=~--In 1754, Governor Dinwitty of Virginia wrote to Governor Dodd, and he asked for the trip of the Indians in North Carolina. And Governor Dodd replied, "There's a lawless there's a law less group." And he didn't say a lawless group of Indians, but there's a lawless group of people we'll say, living on _Drowning __ C_r__eek, which is the Lumbee River, in this area who have taken their land without Quint Rent and C?::::c-,J.__ once a day. We find by 1775 to 1781, the date of the American

PAGE 54

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: ,,,Revolution that our people fought in the American Revolut ion without a doubt. The same goes for the War of 1812, But the tragic time came to our people in 1835. From 1835 to 1885 was fifty years,,.it was a dark age. It was fifty years of uh, you know, a real struggle. You think we have a struggle now because of the double vote over there in Raleigh, and some of the guys pass the buck you know. It was a it was a time when we were really fighting for our rights. Because the Constitution of North Carolina was revised in 1835 which disfranchised the black man. We were not recognized at that time by the United States Government as some other Indian tribes. We were not white, we were not black, •. therefore we were caught up in a situation as we sometimes say, "Between the devil and the deep blue sea." Now something that you ,most of you have n't heard about. There were some supreme court decissions, state supreme court descissions after 1835, Just happened to run on these in my research. One was the uh,,,Charles Oxendine versus the State of North Carolina, 1837, and Oxendine was charged with assult and battery, And he pleaded guilty. And the court ordered him hired out as a "free person of color." See, from '35 to 1885 we were known as free persons of color. Then he appealed to the supreme court, and Judge William Jackson,

PAGE 55

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: and his penmanship is terrible, he prohibited Oxendine from carrying this see, Jackson was Catholic, I think he had an opened mind on the issue, and he didn't want to make a constitutional decission. And I think he was really, you know, I really don't know what he had in mind. There was another case, Noel,.N-o-e-1, Locklear against the State of North Carolina, 1853 which involved carrying a weapon. And he was charged with carrying a weapon in violation of the act of 1840. He was a he was tried, and I think convicted, the best I could make out. Defendants with with this man were Troy Reed, and some other Reed. Well, I thought I would mention there was another case John Locklear, I don't have the details on it, and that happened right about this time. In 1864, wall let's say that the war you know South Carolina seceded from the Union in 1860, and of course secession followed, and by 1864 the war was almost over. And this was the begining of the Lowry Boys, 1864. You know the story of some escaped prisoners from Florence who came into the area, and perhaps they were housed near the Lowry the mother of Henry Barry Lowry speaks of keeping two or three on occassion. But to move on, we know this period during the Lowry War, that there were several causes I think it goes back to 1835 it goes back to the

PAGE 56

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: fact that Allen Lowry, the illDllediate cause, You know Allen Lowry and•his son William, Henry Barry Lowry's father and brother being shot. But anyway, perhaps there was a need for this war at this time. Lumbee Indians today call their number one hero Henry Barry Lowry,.,over the ages. I want to make that plain to you. My mother was a very good Christian Methodist, and you know she thinks Henry Barry Lowry was a great man, He was, This is the way we think aboutHenry Barry Lowry, he was a great man. We decorate people who go to Vietnam, or we build great statues showing raising the flag on Iwo Jima. You know, and we do a whole lot of things right? You're supposed to say right, I'm not going to say anything about the Lowry Gang because that would take weeks. Since I'm only hitting high lights of dates in 1885 the North Carolina Legislature pass ed a law designating the Indians of Robeson County as Croatans, and all of us are familiar with this. Well this did a lot for us. The minutes of the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association show in 1881,,,they met in 1880, they kept no meetings,; no minutes, but in 1881 they met, And the minutes of the Burnt Swamp Bap tist Association called their organization the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association of the mixed race. They had no name. It was a struggle. And I want to find out during the entire 56

PAGE 57

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: struggle there were those who would have tried to make the Indians black, and put them down low, and kept them there. I'm not saying all white people would have done it no, but there were some who would have. In '87 was the begining of Pembroke State University Croatan Normal School. And it first had course rates hanging under the Ix., ,,.i-o >"vi) r ill door )-f y f} u aj,:.,eJl cw-.-4-N""My grandfatherinscribed it there. Now the Legislation in 1885 provided for public schools, let me say that. Now Hamilton McMillan, representative from Red Springs, and I understand in this community at one time we had a Hamilton McMillan Day for awhile. I was told this by Judge Early ------had been told his parents told him about J.,b:,, c!Jm It And the Indian people thogght well of Hamilton McMillan, and I think he did a deserves a building on the Pembroke State University campus, and I hope the board of Trustees will get around to it some time. Hamilton McMillan was a great friend to the Indian people. I feel that way and I might as well speak it. Of course the name Croatan was based on the lost colony '"e., ,.,.._,.,.)?,.;, C v-.y theory that I think ;o;:;: 1 ,e heard.But the name didn't work out too well because the white people of the area caused the Indian people of the area todespise., the name Croatan, so when it was used in such a derogatory manner, and perhaps so 5f

PAGE 58

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: often, the Indians soon said let's change this name. And I notice that the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association dropped after a few years, they dropped the name Croatan they used it the first time there I told you the uh... :CN'e'", 0 %/::::~fc,t,V then they dropped Croatan. But by 1911 we were knocking on legislative halls again. Just as we were knocking today, but for different purpose, they didn't make tr d l,Ll....,/4_.....,, this meeting. I'd like to wish you well who went I'm with you. I'm against double voting. Not to lose my trend of thought. But in 1911, we were designated as Indians of Robe/son County. And of course the name of the Institution had to change. But we only kept that name for two years. In 1913 you know people said, "Well golly Indians of a county why we' re something more than that. Let's have a name." In 1913 Cherokee Indians of Robeson County. Well the Cherokee Indians of western North Carolina never did like this move. And rightfully so. Now I'm not saying there's not some Cherokee blood in this area. We have some Cherokee blood in the area. But we had the new bill, 1913, Cherokee Indians of Robsson County. Do.you remember,olll Cherokee Normal School ,........., --::::: ? Is that what it was called, Cherokee Normal School? sf

PAGE 59

U: That's right. SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL D: Then we went up to Pembroke State College for a year, and then it was Pembroke State College, and then Pembroke State University. Another something illi another important some thing happened the same year, 1913. This most of you don't know about. You know it happened, but you didn't know when it happened. And that to for the protection of the In dian of the public schools of Robeson County. And the first committee the legislature set up J.E. Woodall, H.T. Lowry, O.H. Lowry, and W.B. Welby. Now this committee had the power to keep the schools clear, so to speak, of people of Indian blood they'd have to trace their ancestors to Robeson County. Not even an Indian from Oklahoma could at tend the institution at that time. Now you look back today, and you say, "Well how stupid!" But never the less, I'm tel ling you the way it was. And if something happened to one of the committeemen"Jiere they had the power to name his successor. But the Robeson County Board of Education ! didn't know that until this week they could veto their action. But I don't think they ever did. Th~y left it to them. 1914 C> 1 m. McPhearson came here from the Dep artment of Interior as a special agent. And my time is

I might say that uh later on in the decade, World War II did something. It gave our boys a chance to go away. And they didn't know very much, they hadn't been any place. And the first seargent down at Camp Jackson, he called the role, and he said, "OXENDINE, LOCKLEAR ,!' we'll say John Locklear, and this actually happened and Locklear says, "Seargent you've called my name backwards." And the seargent says, ''We' 11 have no more damn wisecracks out of you." But before I mean by the time the basic training was over, the captain stepped out and he said, "I'd rather have men like Oxendine, brother Locklea 1 iand so forth, and there was another Dial in there. "I'd rather have these men I'd ra ther go overseas with these men, than a whole damn company of you white men." They made number one soldiers, and don't you forget it. One of them returned later and the word, you know, was out that he was dead, and they backed up the wa gon at Red Banks waiting for the corpse, and out walked Abner Locklear. And we said, "Why Abner, we thought you were dead." He says, "I'm mighty sorry you got disappointed;"

PAGE 61

D: SUBJECT : LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL The 1930s saw more action for recognition and a name than any other time in the history of our race. And the boys deserve a lot of recognition for their hard work. You know on the -------------they laid the ground work for Lumbee I think to a great degree. because 7-e,,he.. Lumbee, Santee, Wateree, ~e, psuedo names you know, ,, ,, Lumbee, Teedee, Congoree, Santee, all of these were .lf1c,e? Hamilton McMillan says that the old Indians call Lumbee River Lumbee River. Only he says Lumber River Lumbee River. All of you now need to call it Lumbee River. If the legis lature won't cfiange the name change it yourself. I never refer to it as Lumber River I say Lumbee River. I'm going swimming this summer in Lumbee River. And she's a fine river, the poet says, and speaking of names in 1953, of course the state legislature recognized the Indians as Lumbee Indians. And in 1956 we had our first congressional approval signed by the President as Lumbee Indians. Now I'm not saying there's not Tuscarora blood here. There is Tuscarora blood in Robeson County without a doubt. And those who choose to be of the Tuscarora tribe have faith to feel that way. And don't rule it out because that could take time and it's still true. What I'm saying is true.

D: SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL __________ McNeil, North Carolina's great poet says about the river, "And subject to change ... " And you know we're our names have been changing and he wrote in 1905, "As subject to change as peas and as any girl that goes. And no human angel ever possessed more variable hues and tints and shadows in her misty eyes than this unconscious flirt where the reflection of flags and reeds and rushing ripples below her banks, and the yellow of the gravel bot tom in shallow places darken gradually to the black depths." And he goes on and he has a lot to say. And on down here I notice "that her playmates know that she is as reckless as her name as a rose is. She is just as wild, wondering about in her solemn swamps as she was when the Indians cal led her Lumbee." And he ends with a last sentence "Come summer, I'll throw myself on her breast again and feel her cool soft arms around me." 1905. She's a beautiful river. Now I'm sorry I didn't have more time to deal with a lot of things, but my time is up. But we could have dealt all night with Henry Barry Lowry. But I'll quote a little poem I wrote on Henry Barry Lowry, and I want you to re member it because it tells something. 6:11

"Henry Barry Lowry, where are you sleeping in an unknown grave? Does the grass grow over your breast, or do waters flow through your bones? That will confuse mankind until the end of time. You are the hero of a people keep your secrets. That is part of your greatness. A: Our next person is Bill Owl, it's going to take him a minute to set up. 0: So that's what I've been doing. Three or four years ago in Fayetteville, and most recently in Raleigh. I'm using the drug scene in Raleigh as a way of getting asked quesitons in my communtiy, and trying to bring about some changes that I hope are good for many people. I don't know if it really works that way or not. Through the years the past five years I've kind of evolved a chalk board talk about under standing the community, as I understand it, and I'm going to draw a bunch of pictures on the chalk board. To make them a little bit more Indian I thought that I might have such things as arrows, and a medicine wheel, and a teepee. But 6J

PAGE 64

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: I'll be using some pictures like that all the way through and I'll probably have some different names for them as I go along. The way I got started in this was through something called systems theory, and systems sounds complicated it's really a very simple kind of thing. There are elements, Ele ments can be any thing you want to call elements. Which sometimes get linked together through exchanges, For example, people talking together. And sometimes the exchange is v..> c~ enough that there may be a eventually a boundary that differentiates what's in and what's outside. And that really complicates the quest~of the identity question, when you've got a system, you've got a non-system or an environment outside of it. But there may be elements still wandering around out there. There may also be things like feedback, or information from the environment that goes into the system. There may be directionality, or the thing may arrari)le itself so that it has some kind of purpose and values and things like that. Well that's the whole notion of systems theory. Systems theory can be applied to a lot of things. I use it to try to understand my community, In thinking of a community I look first and notice there are

PAGE 65

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: some people who in a sense constitute elements. And I think way back in history of some of our_communities we had people who were fairly isolated, sometimes on the fron tier, or some times in isolated bands, or groups of people. After a period of time numbers increased and people began to settle down. There were more exchanges, And rather than be isolated there were more and more groupings. These groupings really formed small towns for example, I like to think of that as small town America with an identifiable community with the people mostly linked together with some patterns of exchanges for example, some people might be a business man, or a doctor, or lawyer, housewife, farmer, so forth. Whereas maybe in-an earlier time people were more self-subsistant. They would have they had less dependence on others occupationally or otherwise. Well this lasted for awhile and really now we've got very complex communities with just dozens and dozens of groups. And we have people who also act as consultants and travel around from place to place in the thing too, It's a lot more complicated than in the small town kind of thing. Where you've got both the small groups, and you've also got people who are constant ly moving about. Well if we think of this, and maybe began

PAGE 66

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL O: then to add another dimension. Who makes decisions, and who controls what other people do we began to find that these people were self-subsistant took care of their ownselves, made decisions for themselves. Their decisions usually did not affect other people very much ,i;f--tchey weren't linked together. So I could of kind of diagram that as a ktnd~of system of equality. I don't know if that ever really existed in absolute terms, but maybe there's a tendency toward that. In a small town, notice that some individuals have more exchanges going for them than others, and that means their decisions sometimes count for more, they're very often the leaders. And some are kind of left out, and they don't their decisions don't count for as much. So you kind of have some leaders up at the top of a teepee here, and some people scattered through the mid dle, and some people at the bottom. And the linkages are still very much there, so that those leaders, and follow ers in between I could draw a lot more linkages there, but I think we got the the picture. In a larger community END SIDE ONE, TAPE TWO 66

PAGE 67

LUM 125AB SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK MOORE HALL INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL DATE: MARCH 5, 1973 TAPE: TWO SIDE: TWO 0: And I think my community of Raleigh, in 1900, there were maybe twenty-thousand people there, twenty-five-thousand, but today there are something like two-hundred-and-twenty thousand. So the size of the thing has increased very dra matically. Also, with that increase in size, let's go back to leaders, go back to powers. Sometimes we have class lines forming where we're kind of held in place. People are upwardly mobile for the most part. They try to accom plish certain values, goals, directions good things. And really, the energy of the people gets directed toward those things the leders are there first, and the follow ers try to get there. Same thing here, there's the people usually trying to be upwardly mobile, trying to work hard, get a better job; work hard, get a better education for kids; work hard in school, get better grades able to do a little bit beter in the future, They've had a lot of future orientation, and lots of attempts to better our posistion, and move upward. The community I think has 61f

PAGE 68

SUBJECT : LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: changed, the ones I've worked in, Fayetville and Raleigh, in that, two years lots, For example: back, I think the, the difference was r'--.u if you were able to~that far, you moved a great distance. You did a lot better. And now, if you move that far, you 1 ve:still maybe moved an equal distance, but the scene got so much bigger that I wonder sometimes if it does suddenly it doesn't mean very much to be up wardly mobile. And I think sometimes the competition gets a little bit rougher. Also, the distance from the bottom, in a small coUDllunity, even if you're hurting, if you're struggling at the very bottom of things, you have low in come, broken family, poor housing, on and on and on you still have access to those people who make decisions. It may take several steps to get up there, but your voice can be heard in your community, and you can influence the decisions that are made hopefully, But then when-we:get over here., and we are herding down there, and you go to somebody who goes to somebody who goes to somebody, and you try to get your voice heard by those who make the decisions ,and the coUDllunication pattern breaks down. So what happens is, if you're down here, your voice never gets heard by those who are making the decisions that 61

PAGE 69

SUBJECT : LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: affect you. Some of the kinds of things I see happening in the communities I've worked with here's the o,k. community here this makes sense by the way. Leaders at the top, followers at the bottom o.k. I see some heads nodding the poor are generally caught down here. The poor is here.at.the2kottom, You've also probably got some kind of prejudice from up here working, pushing you even down further. My own work has been in the, since the last two years, has been in the area of drug addiction, and I find the people who turn well who are sometimes caught in an impossible posistion sometimes turn to heavy alcohol use, heroin use, sometimes people who are caught struggling, trying to climb the ladders here, you know, kind of like having to to work hard all day, come home at night, you're so tense, and been through so much stress at working at a o,k. job, but not the greatest job that you really want. By the time you come home you're so tired, drained, it's all you can do to open a can of beer, sit there and try to relax and sit yourself back down and take some tranquilizers to manage that stress. Of course the next morning you've got to go to work you

PAGE 70

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL O: have to have a whole lot of coffee to get you started to be able to work hard, climb the ladder, get the job done for the day. And people use the "ups" and "downs" or amphetamines and "barbs" in the in the same kind of way. Mood regulators are useful there when you've got to work at a difficult job, and when you've got to be able to go to sleep at night because you're so upset with the way things are going. Another thing I see in the communities are increasingly throughout the collllllunity,peP,>le are questioning these values, the goals, the directions, the purposes that we've had. Especially when on a national level we run into some things where we aren't really sure those directions that we're going in maybe those direc tions aren't right. I think a lot of us have had questions about how we the Vietnam war, about cutting back poverty programs about lots of things, so increasingly I think we question our destiny our direction that we're setting. Another kind of thing that I think happens here, is that very often our collllllunities are split, so that some of us may live in one place, and we don't collllllunicate with our neighbors. Sometimes we're split by I don't know not only geographic area, but by the different kinds of

PAGE 71

SUBJECT : LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: .,.occupational groups we have in a community. So that we, we never look this way, and we never look this way. We're too busy trying to climb the ladder up this way, and we lose sight of our neighbors, or our other people who could be our friends who may have a different discipline, different role in their community. They get hostility in stead they compete with them, and in our climb upward. Another thing I see happening very much, is that these barriers sometimes change in how rigid they are. But I think some of the recent research that I've seen indicates that a lot of the barriers are pretty solid. That there are lots of subtle barriers, there are lots of pretty open barriers. But I think in the last few days I'm I'm very convinced there are lots of barriers if you're an::i:s,. In@ian; I taink there are lots of barriers 0 !f~you 1 re black based on skin color. There're economic barriers, social barriers, political barriers, education, on and on and on. Well, it's that's the way a community is set up these days, and I'm not totally sure that this is the way it is, but increasingly I see that that kind of description fits the communities I know. iU,that's the case what can we do?

PAGE 72

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: Are there some things we can do in our communities so that people down here have a greater say in decision making, so that when these people allocate resources, and they make those decisions in good things that happen so that these people are heard and have a chance to get those things. So that maybe sometimes these barriers aren't so rigid. So that maybe these lines here that keep us apart from each other is there some way to reduce that. This is the kind of thing that I've concerned myself about, with Raleigh and Fayetville too. Some of the strategies pertained, and I'm going to run through a whole bunch of them because I think they're important. One of the things that I used to think could happen, would be that to just get the word to these people, and they could make some changes happen. We've just got a problem, and it'll it'll all turn right. Well, we tried that it didn't work. These people are held in place, both by the push from up here these people are busy climbing up there, and they are held in place because of that. But also, if you've dealt with some of the elites, they're linked in with ot her elites and other places, so that if you're going to change one, you've got to change a great many. Community

PAGE 73

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: D.ANFORD DIAL 0: leadership in many places, the leaders go around from city to city. They're kind of locked in there because of maybe state or federal kinds of things as well, so they can't really change very much. Well, that didn't work too well. Another kind of thing, I've had some academic training in how to rehabilitate individuals, and I set out to do things like that. Find somebody who was hurting, evaluate them, get them some special training, fix them up, get them up here where everything is good. And great, he's happy, making a productive living, he's not poor anymore fine, works great for an individual. But there's a slight prob lem in that too, in that you can keep bringing individuals up here, but other individuals get pushed down here I think at the same time. The structure stays the same, and you end up with many poor people, many hurting people, and the same kind of situation all over again. It's important to the individual, but somehow it doesn't really bring about the like results for the whole community. Another kind of strategy is to begin organizing. And I know there are many here who organized at one time or another again, where people are hurting. And grassroots organizing you 7J

PAGE 74

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: get together a group of people who are caught here, build an organization, and start trying to move the whole thing up the ladder. Or another kind of thing, you begincto move out side. You've got two two possible directions here. And if you've got a really together group of people, and you're re ally with it you might be able to move some distance, but as we talked, I think, yesterday, once these people begin to notice what's going on here they get pretty th,ceatened_. And the first thing you know, they start moitoring what's go ing on, and then set up a kind of blockade there, and start coming down heavy as a threat recoil cycle. As soon as there's a threat they start recoiling against it. So that doesn't work too well either. Well, we've tried all those kinds, of.cthiygs, and I've I don't know we used to be caught.somewhere probably somewhere down here. I figure gee what am I going to do? My next thought was maybe I should just try to move right on out someplace and do a long haired hippy thing, and find a quiet farm somewhere, and move to a quiet place. But somehow that doesn't work either because once you move out~ side these lines here pretty often you're fair game. You break one of these rules or laws or something, as soon as you Uf

PAGE 75

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL O: move outside the• norms that holds the system together. So that didn't work very well either. And especially people who move outside this way or whatever are caught in the same type trap that the poor generally are. They're fair game. If you're down here, you're fair game for the police department, fair game for every social agency, you're fair game for every kind of thing that can can happen. And you've got no avenue to redress wrongs. Now after all those kinds of things I think back and try to figure where do I go from here? And I'm still struggling with that a lot, had some thoughts. One thing I've noticed is that there've been some technological changes in our culture which have really changed this as they've hap pened. The technology that was invented twenty-five, thirty years ago that has influenced us very subtlely, very deeply, we haven't really noticed this. Kind of pushed on the middle, and really, eliminated middle class America in a great sense. And what we've ended up with is either you've got a kind of power, or you're a person. And that power whatever it may be begins to control you. Some of the technological changes I'm talking of here include the computer. If you've ever argued with a computer that's got your address wrong on a mailing 7j

PAGE 76

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: list, you know how a computer has power the individual doesn't. Another kind of thing is the atomic bomb which has an ultimate kind of power, and we just hope, we don't know, we don't have very much say in the decision really, Some other kinds of things like this television, mass-media, mass-transit. Another kind of thing is a lecture, such as is going on right now that you can, sitting here, where some supposed expert stands up here and delivers a message, And you are forced to sit there and listen, and you have very~ little chance to really send back messages, or to carry on a discussion. And increasingly I think our lives are caught in this kind of a~whirl. We can change it, and I see that as a kind of direction that we are going in, and have been going in. Well what I've set about in Raleigh, has been, how do you begin a ten, twenty year project just like Bill Lyles has been talking about. I felt a lot of kinship with what he was talking about. Are there some ways you can take thi~-kind of a thing and redesign it? Maybe say that it's like this, And, so that more people have more say in decision making, so that more people look to each other, rather than just up the lad der, and so that there are fewer people hurting. I know a lot 76

PAGE 77

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL O: of people say that there's always going to be people who are hurting, but at least we can reduce the number if that has to be a true kind of thing. One of the ways that I've been working on this, is through a large scale series of discussion groups. Trying to bring people together from different parts of the community. And I have the communities kind of split up in a lot of different ways, for example, by race, by income level, by geographic area, by age, by I don't know, we could go on and list a lot of other things here to. But when we divide up a community as they seem to be increasingly people don't talk to each other if they're different from themselves. They don't have a sense of com munity or identity. And it's very easy to put everybody else down, and ignore that larger community in that sit uation. So we've started working with some discussion groups where we've sat people around in a medicine wheel kind of circle, and gotten discussions going, where we've had some exciting kinds of things happen. Being black and white, and in Fayetville we did have a very small number, two or three Indians, in the project we ran there with the police depart ment, and a variety of other groups somewhat similar to this. T(f

PAGE 78

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: We hadspeoplefrom different income levels, different geo graphic areas of the community, different age groups, lots of other kinds of differences by getting involved in a discussion group we've been able to stimulate some action groups, We're using the drug scene as a vehicle for enter ing into the community. We aren't just concerned about the drug scene what's happening there important, very def initely. We're more concerned about the people throughout the community beong able to talk to each other, being aquainted with the problems that exist in different parts of the community, being knowledgeable, having experience knowing another person that's different. We've seen some changes some good things. We're going to be Funning something on the order of fifteen discussion groups start ing next week in Raleigh. Each group will have about fif teen people. There's been two sessions similsr to this in the past year, so we're begining to get to well, we've already reached four-hundred people, and I think over a ten year period if you keep-this kind of a process going, there may begin to be eventually .•. some changes in the

PAGE 79

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL 0: thing. I don't really know if that's going to happen or not. I can only hope. I think I might try to stop at that. I wrote down a couple of thoughts here. I think this group right here represents a kind of mechanism somewhat similar to that, somewhat similar to the pow wows, where people from a large area get together, exchange ideas, get aquainted, develop some symbols of identity of meaningfulness to them, and begin to be concerned about their larger community, and make some things happen. Is it possible to continue meetings such as this, maybe in a different form? Can this group do that? Another thing might be some sort of a community educa tion group for progress somewhat similar to what we've been doing in Raleigh, where we've developed a large series of discussion groups, but each discussion group has involved people from a diversity of backgrounds. That might be a pos sible kind of thing that could be set up here someday, per haps to bring about what I'm trying to change. A: O.k., I think we'd like to break for coffee and cookies now, and then reconvene in about fifteen minutes if you will, and we'll have ~eorge Stout talk U: Tell me when they say we can close the door now. V: Maybe

PAGE 80

U: Alrighty ,thank you. SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL A: I think if you'll all take your seats now, we can start on the second part. For the S1l111Inary and second part George Stout is going to start us off, and then we'll have an open sort of free swinging quesiton and answer period with peo ple that spoke tonight. George? S: I sometimes have a tendency to start out real loud, and get real real low so if you can't hear me in the rear just raise your hands up, and I'll try and increase my my vol ume. I guess it's awful hard sometimes to reinterpret what people have said, and particularly when you're sitting there and, you know, get your get your thoughts get your way of thinking have a tendency to go just the opposite. I guess what I'd like to do is take a look at about four issues and try to see what has been said, and what needs to be said, or what should be said and we'll go from there. It's often hard for people such as the Indians here I guess in North Carolina, particularly in this area. Things I've heard this evening about your history, language because for an Indian coming from Oklahoma, it's very hard for-me~toccaseeptualize how hard it would be. For,me I didn't have a history, did n't have a language. I was raised in a traditional way, that

PAGE 81

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: at the age of six, I could speak no English. And I think it's very vital, that the that the research that's being undertaken here is very needed. Sometimes history, tradition has advantages and disadvantages the thing that happened in Ireland the thing that happened right here in this country, some of its disadvantages. I'd like to relate to you though a story that my grandfather once told me. I guess which I hold very deer to my heart, and I guess that would explain to you the need for, as I would say a history. My grandfather, at the age of sixty-seven, and I was at about the age of five or six just begining to get into public schools, se to re lay this to me. Use to wake me up at four-thirty, and we'd go out and slop the hogs, and feed the pigs, and do this, you know. And at the age of five or six, you know, I mean you wanted to sleep late. He instilled in me a discipline that I guess I'll never forget. Because the words, in his own words, used to say that this is a white man's world. He said you, he said you have to act, you have to think, you have to be almost a white man. But he says, I want you to remember one thing he said, above and beyond anyhting else, he says, you always remember that you're an Indian that you're a Creek. And I guess this has kind of you know, every time St

PAGE 82

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: things get a little rough I remember that. And I guess what I interpret that to mean like everything is role playing. You role you learn how to play a particular type of role. Whether it's a father, mother. son, a professor in front of somebedyd!ie's"going to;lecture,arswhat ever. And I guess one of the things that I see among Indians is that, .,;J,;:~ we have not learned how to play the role. And I think this is where a lot of our conflicts arise. So I would urge that anything you can do to preserve what little history, what little research that you can do.to aquire this kind of type~of thing, whether it be written, verbal that you hang on to it because for some of us, that's all we've got left. I would also urge you that you do everything you can to find out everyt&ing you can about your about your history, your past and so forth. I'm sorry to say I have nothing else to say in that area because the Lumbees, as you know, I didn't know they existed until maybe 1953 or four or five. I'd like to turn now to pan-Indianism. Some of the things you saw and heard, some of the things I would've said about pan-Indianism. I hope that pan-Indianism the word is new, the concept is new. It began in the late 30s and it began to flourish in the early 40s when Indians began their mass-migration to urban

PAGE 83

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: areas. I like to look at the word pan-Indianism as a form of communication between between groups, between individuals, between tribes. A way of learning one another's one other or another individual's way, his past, his history, or whatever. I hope pan-Indianism will not replace individual tribal history, tradition, and so forth. In a session last night I was told that they felt that Indianism was was something in I guess in history it was it would eventually die out. I had to disagree, because I think the very fact that there is someone here in your connnunity that's doing research, also that there are a number of individuals here or they are concerned that some new awakening or awareness has taken place. And I think the population census of 1970 indicates that. I disagree with the census but whatever. Pan-Indianism suggests to me, again I say, an exchange of information. The more informa tion that you can find out about other Indians, other tribes, a good example was last night when I was invited to attend one of the singing sessions a lot of the songs I've heard, -,-.,\..>-<,,,,, , and so forth, I think that I s good. Community organization I believe in a whole series of organizations. Three almost three years ago when the

PAGE 84

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: commissioner was putting together a group of Indian ex ecutives to to take over BIA, I was one of them. The thing that we forgot to do, is we forgot to organize a local Indians. Even though I felt our ideas was good, without relation, or relaying information down to local areas we got hit and hit hard. We got clobbered. In order to change a system, I think first you must isolate an issue, that issue has to be geared to your heart, or some an issue that steps on your toes. As an example, let's take a look at the Alaskan Claim. I feel that the Alaskan Claim will be the biggest rape this country has ever seen. But the lower forty-eight states are doing nothing about it as far as being Indians. An Indian group gets into trouble, other Indian groups have a hands-off kind of thing. Some where, somehow, organizations have to be formed around issues. Max Weber once said, "A creation of an organization, you're also creating a second organization, a third organiza tiOn that'll eventually destroy you." This is good, that's the way it should be because I feel that organizations should probably last no more than three or four years then new ideas have to emerge new ideas, new concepts, new di rections have to make way. And I think that's one of the

PAGE 85

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: reasons about the failure of the federal system, universities, local systems and so forth. I think what you've heard the past two evenings, and I think one thing that you should be vitally interested in is how do you make the system that exists service you. How do you make that system deliver the system the ser vices that you need. The things you do, and the things you don't do it's easy for some of us to get up here and tell you how to do things, but in actuality, being realistic about it, when you' begin to implement them that's where it hurts. Idea, implemen tation and results are three distinct different things. The federal system has not has not worked because it has not been able to implement. I'd like to take a crack at research, Research is good to some extents some other extents it is not good. Communities such as this, I think when you let a researcher in, I think that research should be based on your needs, community needs, not because of some idea set at a university, wanting to get his MA degree, PhD, or do some clinic research. And I think that academicians in universities should keep that in mind. That when they enter a community to do research that they've got to keep community needs at heart. Because if you want to change, you need some valid information, and research can get that for you.

PAGE 86

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: Last week I spent the week in New Orleans listening to pre sentations,different techniques of research, research papers and so forth that was put on by the American Education Research Association. There were about thirty papers present ed on Indians only three of them were Indian. All thirty of them should have been Indians. So these are the things that we're looking at. I have no qualms about non-Indians doing research, so long as they keep the needs of the com munity at heart, and they focus around that. Because what the community gets they can use, and utilize effectively. And I think that possibly that this in essence is what some of the ' things I've heard here, some of the things that some ideas that I've.tried_to~convey to you. In short, and it may not be what you want to hear that's I'm usually frank, to the point, and I don't like to use too many adjectives. One of the things that you should realize and use utilize, is the university right here. Because in theory, this institution was Eo,set up, and all other institutions, were set up to give service to the community, whether it be a social agency, whether it be a university or whatever. And I guess in leav ing, or closing I'd like to leave just one word with you. That's what Benjamin Franklin once said. And he said that, 86

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: "If one person has.r,!ghts," then he said that" one person who has rights, and probably in all actuality that somewhere there is a right," but he says, "if we deny that one person his right to think and speak," then he said, "wnat we have is," he said "we have denied that people can govern themselves." With that I would like to go. U: I think what I'd like now is for you George, and Joel, and Bob Gregory and Adolph to take the hotline and have questions. Q: I'd like to go ahead and ask a question in relation to the people last night. We did all the research, and after you heard all the facts and -~C-~":rY\=='-'"=c;J~:l:n ..... ~------conclusions,I assume you turned it back in to the federal government, and I'd like to know if they have reviewed _________ that :::J they may look into the .problems that in the way of the Indian people attaining the goals that they have in mind as far as education, technology, this type of thing, and if the federal government has agreed to look into these problems, who will administer these problems among the Lumbee people here in Robeson County .--:::::'I , 0 ? _,_v-,,=-====-=......

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL S: had research done since, that I'm real familiar with, since 1928 with the _________ Report. I look at that, just a waste of funds and a waste of information, because since that time it's all been rhetoric. The Highland/Hearst Report to a great extent reenforced what he said back in 1928. I see the c-df~< Associates Survey that was done four or five years ago I don't know if there's one federal individual who's opened them to look at them. That's why I guess to one extent that this kind of feedback is good, because I think it has to be done at a-local area,~And the other thing that I've got to say I guess is that the agencies the federal agencies respond to the ________ situation. U: Ouch Q: I'd like to ask one other' question. What was the purpose of the research? U: Let me think Q: _______________________ the program. O: Oh o.k.

SUBJECT: LUMBEE FEEDBACK INTERVIEWER: DANFORD DIAL O: we did was approved what any damn fool already knew, w'hich was that you weren't getting the kind of education that you wanted. You wanted more Indian history in your education, that Indian kids were not dumber than other people, you know, things like this. And you do this kind of research in the hope that the guy who makes the ultimate decision about where the dollars go could not pick up the book and say, "I made that decision because all this evidence suggests that that's the decision I should make without ever having looked at it. It discourages this. We know the things that we came out with, and we know that there are reports since 1928. Not much has been done about it a little bit, but not much.
