Description

The histories of Native Americans in South Carolina also have much in common. Beginning in the early 1500s, European colonization meant disease, enslavement and loss of land for most Indian people. Traditions and customs were sometimes lost in the struggle to stay alive. Some of their customs were replaced by new ones, as Native Americans became absorbed into the general population. But today there are renewed efforts to restore Native American culture to South Carolina.
