Native Americans in South Carolina: Chris Judge
The Horry County Museum in Conway and the AVX Foundation present a lecture by Chris Judge on the Pee Dee, Cheraw, and Waccamaw Indians of Eastern South Carolina July 29 at 1 p.m. The Native people in Eastern South Carolina were among the earliest to be contacted by Europeans in the early 16th century. What was ultimately a successful colonization for Europeans was a culturally devastating point in history for Native South Carolinians. This presentation takes an ethno-historical approach, combining information from written records, oral history interviews and archaeological investigations to weave the untold story, one marginalized in all European history narratives. Descendants of these indigenous groups still live in the area today. Free.
