About US
Located near the present day Hoke and Robeson County lines, the Hawkeye Indian Cultural Center is just as short drive from Lumberton and Fayetteville. Here, where ancient cypress lakes border lush farmland and offer a picturesque backdrop for sunsets of incredible beauty, our people have found our home for more generations than anyone can count. Back when mankind found his sustenance in hunting and gathering, native people found this oasis, where large catfish, abundant deer and other game mingled with lush vegetation. The Lumbee Indian and members of other local tribes such as the Cheraw and Pone made their home in the rich basins of the Lumber River, Drowning Creek and its subsidiaries. Hundreds of Years passed, the Europeans came and life changed. The Revolutionary war occurred and was featured just yards from our present day location, which was a muster point for Tory forces. The Civil War came and relationships among people were forever altered. The industrial revolution changed everything, and now, as industry is fading and agriculture again taking its role of prevalence in our society, the Native American once more finds prominence in this ancient land. The Hawkeye Indian Cultural Center is a beacon of that prominence, as can be seen by the number of programs and services offered here. Services and programs such as health and wellness training, cultural and environmental education, a two acre organic farm, a medicinal garden, Pow Wows, festivals, agritourism, ecotourism, a large pond for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and more, Subsistence Lifeways Education and Training and more. We invite all people, races and cultures to visit us here at Hawkeye Indian Cultural Center. Here you will find a welcoming people, a wisdom tempered with modern experience and friendships that endure. Where past meets present, the Hawkeye Indian Cultural Center welcomes you to our home.
