State audit alleges violations at N.C. Indian Cultural Center

Posted by on Mon, Sep 28, 2009 at 12:18 PM

The N.C. Indian Cultural Center in Robeson County allegedly has violated its lease agreement with the state Department of Administration by failing to maintain adequate insurance coverage and by subleasing property without permission from the state.

A state auditor’s report released today notes that the center does not carry coverage for fire, builder’s risk (which would take care of losses related to vandalism) or workers’ compensation.

In addition, the cultural center subleased the property with Iron Bear Visions, a nonprofit group based in Pembroke, from 2004 to 2007, also in violation with the center’s agreement with the state.

Iron Bear Visions, according to filings with the N.C. Secretary of State, promotes social and recreational activities to children with an emphasis on substance abuse prevention.
