The Cumberland County Schools Office of Indian Education is celebrating American Indian Heritage Month by posting daily videos of American Indians from across the country representing their respective tribes.
Each video will be shared on the school district’s Facebook page.
Members of the Lumbee Tribe Ambassadors and the Cumberland County Culture Class also visited E.E. Miller Elementary School to share their culture through dance on Nov. 1 to kick off the month.
"Native Americans are still here," said Rodney Jackson, coordinator of Cumberland County Schools' Office of Indian Education.
"We still exist and we are more than just a mascot. We are a culture."
1.47% of students who attend Cumberland County Schools are Native American. That’s approximately 747 students.
