“An extremely valuable work for anyone interested in race, human rights, or Native American studies.”--Library Journal
“Ideal for American history buffs, this rich history explores familiar American periods of turmoil through the singular experience of the Lumbee Indian community.”--Publishers Weekly
“An excellent historical account of the many struggles Lumbee people experience, while remaining a proud people determined to retain their identity as Indians.”--Western Historical Quarterly
“A fascinating monograph that provides a case study of the Lumbees, a self-identified Native American nation bound by kinship and place for hundreds of years. . . . Contributes to the fields of American history, American studies, Native American studies, and critical race and ethnic studies.”--Journal of Southern History
“This book is Maynor Lowery’s ode to the Lumbee people and her reconciliation of what it means to be American and Lumbee concurrently. She contends that the two do not exist in contradistinction to each other, nor do they exist copacetically. She writes in a way that is accessible to the reader, palatable for non-Natives, and her book is a decidedly and incontrovertibly Lumbee work by and for Lumbee people.”--American Indian Quarterly
“A riveting and all-encompassing history of the Lumbees, the largest tribe east of the Mississippi River. . . . Lowery’s book appeals to a wide audience, both general and scholarly. Chapter intersections called ‘Interludes’ enhance her well-written and well-researched narrative. . . . Lowery’s readers become thoroughly engaged in the story of why she is ‘Proud to be a Lumbee.’”--The Journal of Southern Religion
