The Lumbee Indians: An American Struggle

A book-length exploration of the importance of Native peoples in American history, and in particular how the history of the largest Indian tribe east of the Mississippi spotlights the struggle to reconcile religious and cultural differences within our own borders and in engagements all over the globe.

"The Lumbee Indians, An American Struggle" explores the integral place of Native people, specifically the Lumbees, to the narratives of American history and how Native stories change the American past that we think we know. The Lumbees are the largest Native American tribe east of the Mississippi and the ninth largest in the nation. With Lumbees at the center of U.S. and Southern history, those narratives become even more dramatic, intense, and compelling. The Lumbee story is in many ways a microcosm of the Southern United States; its moments of crisis offer constant surprises even to those who are familiar with the region's ambiguous power dynamics. The manuscript is currently under advance contract with the University of North Carolina Press.
