About Us

USC Lancaster and its Native American Studies Committee have worked closely with the main campus in Columbia and many regional campuses of USC, the Catawba Cultural Preservation Project, community leaders from the state’s Native American communities, and regional arts and cultural agencies to develop plans for bringing greater attention to the history and culture of South Carolina’s indigenous peoples.

In 2006, the Native American Studies Ad Hoc Committee—currently named the Native American Studies Advisory Committee-- was formed to start building a pottery collection with the hope that one day it would become an important part of the center’s mission and future. Through grants, donations, and sponsorships this collection has grown to include several individual collections – The Duke Energy Collection and the Thomas J. Blumer Collection just to name a few, these collections combined total over thirteen hundred pieces of pottery, archaeological artifacts, and other Native American crafts.


Mission Statement

The mission of these galleries is to bring greater attention to the history and culture of South Carolina's indigenous peoples through preservation projects, exhibits,    student engagement, and other public projects.
