Established in August of 2012, this comprehensive center for the study of South Carolina’s Native American peoples, their histories, and their cultures offers visitors the opportunity to view the single largest collection of Catawba Indian pottery in existence; study primary and secondary texts on Native Americans in the Southeast; participate in educational classes and programs; and observe archaeology, language, and folklore and oral history labs.

The USCL Native American Studies Center has received support from the City of Lancaster, USC Lancaster, the Educational Foundation of USC Lancaster, and Duke Energy.  Programming has been supported by grants from the SC Arts Commission, the Humanities Council SC; the National Endowment for the Arts, the Offices of the USC Provost and Vice President for Research, the SC Budget and Control Board, the Lancaster County Council of the Arts, the SC Department of Archives and History, and the Charlotte Area  Educational Consortium.
