expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Helen Maynor Scheirbeck (1935-2010), born in Lumberton, N.C., was a political scientist, educator, and community organizer. Scheirbeck was a member of the Lumbee tribe, and was involved as a national leader and consultant in many organizations and projects related to American Indian tribal recognition, education, and community development. She earned a Bachelor of Arts from Berea College and a Doctorate of Educational Administration with a public policy emphasis from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. She also received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009. Scheirbeck was known for her work training young American Indians to work with the United States Congress and other federal agencies to promote policies that help American Indian communities.

From 1959 to 1964 Scheirbeck worked as an intern for the National Congress of American Indians and as a staff member for Senator Sam Ervin on the United States Senate Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights in Washington, D.C. From 1965 to 1966 she served as a Congressional fellow through the American Political Science Association, with a special project in Keshena, Wisc., to study the effects of termination of tribal recognition and withdrawal of federal program services on the Menominee tribe of Wisconsin. Scheirbeck then worked as consultant to the Rural and Indian Divisions of the Wisconsin Community Action Programs, organized anti-proverty programs in Great Lakes Region, and developed strategies for bringing smaller communities of Indians together for an inter-tribal community. From 1966 to 1968 she served as special assistant for federal programs in the Office of the Chancellor at the University of Wisconsin, where she was the University Extension's liaison with the federal government for program development and grantsmanship.

From 1968 to 1973 Scheirbeck was a program specialist in the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. She directed the Office of Indian Affairs within the United States Commissioner of Education's office, co-directed task forces for implementing the Indian Education Act, stimulated development of a community-based self-help organization for non-reservation Indians, and coordinated and assisted in planning financing of several national Indian organizations focused on advocacy for rights and educational opportunities of Indian children. In 1972 Scheirbeck helped establish the Coalition of Indian Controlled School Boards. She also developed strategies in 1973 to enable tribal colleges and universities to obtain start-up funds as developing institutions through Title III of the Higher Education Act. President Jimmy Carter appointed her chair of the Indian Education Task Force, which helped define the Indian controlled schools movement.

From 1973 to 1975 Scheirbeck was a project director and Washington liaison at the John Hay Whitney Foundation with a special project on history, financing, and administration of Indian education. She conducted historical research and analysis of primary source and public documents on the history of policies affecting American Indian education and control of such education; coordinated the Washington, D.C. office to monitor executive and legislative activities affecting American Indian education; arranged special training sessions for rural colleges with experts on higher education administration; directed analysis of American Indian education laws; and drafted legislation concerning financing of rural underdeveloped American Indian community colleges.

From 1975 to 1976 Scheirbeck was program director and chair of the Indian Education Task Force at the American Indian Policy Review Commission. She organized and directed the review of executive and legislative policies affecting education of American Indians; surveyed state and local educational conditions through national field hearings; supervised special studies on admininistrative policies and school financing; and produced a special report filed with the American Indian Policy Review Commission and with the United States Congress.

From 1978 to 1980 Scheirbeck was program director of the National Commission for the International Year of the Child and from 1980 to 1981 she was program director for the White House Conference on Children and Youth. She also served as a consultant for the First National Directory of Indian Women; stimulated the development of a School of the Arts for the second largest American Indian tribe in the country; and served as a resource to the national "definition of an Indian" study on eligibility for education programs conducted for Secretary of Education.

From 1981 to 1982 Scheirbeck was project advisor and director of the associated Lumbee Regional Development Association, the Indian Information Program, and the United Indians of America in Pembroke, N.C.. From 1982 to 1987 she served as regional director of the Save the Children Federation in Westport, Conn., and from 1987 to 1990 she was the development director of the North Carolina Indian Cultural Center in Pembroke, N.C.

From 1990 to 1995 Scheirbeck worked as national director for Head Start programs serving American Indian and Alaskan Natives. She was a trustee of the National Museum of the American Indian from 1987 to 1995, and served as director for public programs at the museum from 1995 to 2007.

Her father, Judge Lacy W. Maynor (1904-1972), was a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and served eight years as Judge of the Recorder's Court in the Maxton District, Robeson County, N.C. He was recognized as an advocate for Lumbee rights, education, and federal recognition, and was involved in the National Congress of American Indians. Maynor was also a tobacco farmer, deacon in Berea Baptist Church, and a Sunday school teacher and officer in the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association of North Carolina. He was a public opponent of the Ku Klux Klan and was recognized in local newspapers for helping to "run the Klan out of North Carolina" at a 1958 Ku Klux Klan rally in Robeson County, N.C.
