To the Editor,

The Lumbee Tribal Government is all about helping themselves instead of helping people that need help in our community. I have been going to the Lumbee Tribal Government trying to get help for my two elderly grandparents who are on a fixed income. I have gone down there multiple times and every time I get the run around and lied to. Every time they tell me that they have run out of money, and that they have reached the limit on the assistance that my family can have. How can you run out of government funding that’s here to help our Indian people?

The Lumbee Tribe is only interested in helping those they want to help, and not truly the ones that need it the most. For example, I know a woman who lives near me that has had help multiple times who doesn’t even need it and they never refuse her anything.

If I don’t soon see progress in their actions, I will pursue legal action all the way to Congress.
