An open Letter to the Lumoee people rrom
Arlinda Locklear, Tribal Attorney
During recent weeks, much has
been written and said about the
Lumbee recognition bill, the Lumbee
Constitution Assembly, and the impact
of the woric on the proposed tribal
constitution on the recognition bill.
As the attorney who represents the
Lumbee Tribe before Congress on the
Lumbee recognition bill, I'd like to
express to you my view on these
First, there is some confusion about
who 1 represent on the Lumbee
recognition bill. My client on the
Lumbee recognition bill is and has
always been the Lumbee Tribe. Until
February 1994, the Lumbee Regional
Development Association paid for my
wot on the tribe's behalf on the
Lumbee bill, la February 1994, my
contract with L.R.D.A. expired
Because of difference with L.R.D A
over the tribe's right to adopt a tribal
constitution. I have since told
LRDA that I will not sign a new
contract with them or take any tees
torn dm NehherwiOIsipiaooatract
with or tths any feat for work on the
tribePrecognition bill from any other
aroupor segmentof thsLambss Tribe
It is important that I remain loyal only
to my client tht Lambit Tribe. To
do that. I can no lonasr contact with
any oaa sevment of the tribe. 1 assure
yon, though, that I will tnarianr to
represent As tribe on the Lumbee
Recognition Bill to the bast of my
ability and will do whatever wash is
necesaary to obtain nmsnMofthe bill
Secondly, there have bean reports
I >3 a. 91^:?? 1
about possible changes to the
recognition bill. Some people
associated with LRDA ashed the
sponsor of the Lumbee Bill,
Congressman Charlie Rose, about
changing the bill so that LRDA would
be recognized as a temporary tribal
government, pending the adoption of
a constitution at some later date As
has been reported in the press, Mr.
Rose advised that he opposed any
amendments to the Dill. In addition,
one or more people associated with
LRDA attempted to hire another
lobbyist in Washington, D C. for the
same purpose Apparently, LRDA has
abandoned this effort. As a result, the
Lumbee Tribe is now united behind
passage of the Lumbee bill as presently
Thirdly. I have also volunteered
my time to assist the Lumbee
Constitutional Aaaembly ia the
drafting of n Lumbee tribal

Recognition Bill requires thm the tribe

Bureau of Indian AfEsire has advised
that the sooner the tribe does so the
