State recognition expected for South Carolina tribes
Monday, November 29, 2004

The state of South Carolina is expected to grant state recognition to as many as six tribes.

Last year, Gov. Mark Sanford (R) signed a law spelling out the criteria for state recognition. The guidelines require a tribe to show a historical presence in South Carolina for the last century and to have at least 150 members.

Tribal leaders say state recognition will improve education, health and other benefits. They also say it could lead to federal recognition and the return of tribal ancestors and artifacts.

Currently, the Catawba Nation is the state's sole federally-recognized tribe. The tribe gained recognition through an act of Congress.

Get the Story:
Official status likely for 6 tribes (The State 11/27)
Santee tribe still waiting for ancestors' remains (AP 11/29)
