Chairwoman Revels, an enrolled member of the Lumbee Indian tribe, has served as a member of the Commission since 2003. She has vast experience with American Indian issues through her work as Chairwoman of the Commission’s Economic Development and Employment Committee, NC Indian Economic Development Initiative, and her service as the first Executive Director of the Guilford Native American Association in Greensboro.

“Outreach to American Indian communities is important to North Carolina,” said Secretary Bill Daughtridge. “Ms. Revels possesses the background, knowledge and skills needed to accomplish great things for these communities as the new leader of the Commission.”

NC has eight statutory tribes and four Indian Associations. Addressing the needs of these communities is the primary work of the NC Commission of Indian Affairs.

“The NC Commission of Indian Affairs does an excellent job of administering programs that meet the specific needs of the American Indian population in North Carolina,” said Greg Richardson, Director of the NC Commission of Indian Affairs. “We are looking forward to Chairwoman Revels’ vision and leadership as our new leader.”
