*Waccamaw Indian Chief Hatcher
Will address the key issues and discriminatory practices affecting the Waccamaws
and to appeal for support of initiatives on behalf of the Waccamaw Indian People.
“We are the first tribe in the State of South Carolina to obtain official recognition from the South Carolina Office of Vital Statistics. Additionally, the Waccamaw gained approval from the Governor’s Minority Affairs Ad Hoc Committee on Indian Recognition as an Indian Tribe as defined in the State of South Carolina.
At the South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs meeting on February 17, 2005, the Waccamaw Indian People made history by becoming the first of two state recognized tribes in the history of the state of South Carolina. Today there are eight state – recognized tribes in South Carolina.”
