Catawba & Tribal Land | Periscope

Many members of the Catawba live on a reservation near Rock Hill, South Carolina. In 1994, the tribe asked the United States government to officially recognize the Catawba Indians' right to tribal lands. After a long court battle, the Catawba won tribal recognition from the United States. The Catawba people were able to gain back some of the tribal land they had lost.
