8th Annual Native American Studies Week

Beginning March 23rd, we will host our eighth annual Native American Studies Week and our first in the new NAS Center on Main Street. After a kick-off festival at the downtown Center on Saturday March 23rd, we will begin a week of events focused on Native Americans, law, and justice. This year's slate of speakers will discuss legal, political, and social justice issues, including the recent case of "Baby Veronica" (set to go before the Supreme Court this session), the saga of the Catawba fight for federal recognition and the subsequent land settlement, and the Cherokee Removal under President Andrew Jackson. As always, these events are free and open to the public. The Native American Studies Center is now located at 119 South Main Street, Lancaster, South Carolina.
