Lumbee Homecoming 2019 in Robeson County North Carolina: The Senior Ms. Lumbee Pageant

Senior Ms. Lumbee 2019-2020 Sharon Jones

Each year the Lumbee Indians of North Carolina have Homecoming.  This is when Lumbees from all over the United States come home.  During this celebration, there are activities all week that include a Golf Tournament this year it was at the Pinecrest Country Club, Basketball & Swimming Tournaments, Wrestling Championship, the Warriors Military Ball,  Gospel Singings all week,  Outdoor Market all week, Elder’s Luncheon, Summer Jam, Car Show, Fireworks and much more.

Main events are crowning our new Ambassadors for the upcoming year.  The Lumbee Indians hold several pageants during Homecoming and crown those who best represent our tribe.  The titles awarded are:

Little Miss Lumbee
Junior Miss Lumbee
Teen Miss Lumbee
Miss Lumbee
and Senior Ms. Lumbee

You can read about our Ambassadors  here on the Lumbee Coming Page and I will be publishing more about them in the future.
