Struggling to Maintain Identity: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore

Abstract

This paper reports the findings of a 1981 survey of Lumbee Indians in Baltimore. Ethnic identity has been and continues to be an issue for this community and the survey was addressed to three central questions around the issue: Are Baltimore Indians still culturally assimilated but structurally separated from dominant society, a finding in a 1971 ethnography of this community? Is the sense of Lumbee identity only a subjective sentiment or are there objective expressions of this affiliation? Do these Indians consider themselves oppressed victims of "internal colonialism"?
