RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Commission on Indian Affairs will discuss Hurricane Matthew relief efforts when it meets in Raleigh.

The commission is scheduled to meet Friday at the North Carolina Association of Educators building in downtown Raleigh. Among the items on the agenda are the hurricane recovery efforts in Robeson County, which is home to the Lumbee Indians.

Hurricane Matthew flooded much of eastern North Carolina when it struck in October.

Other issues include the establishment of veterans services offices in each tribal and urban community.
