The South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs is commemorating Native American Heritage Month with a social media campaign highlighting the culture, history, and contributions of Native Americans throughout the month of November.
The virtual celebration includes information on Native American history, spotlights on tribes and businesses in the state, and more. To view the month-long celebration, visit the agency’s Facebook or Instagram pages.
“We encourage all citizens to take time to engage with this educational experience to learn about the unique challenges Native Americans have faced and how tribal nations are working to conquer these challenges today,” said SC Commission for Minority Affairs Executive Director Dr. Delores Dacosta.
The Native American Affairs Division of the SC Commission for Minority Affairs serves as South Carolina’s official Native American Affairs agency working with Native American Indians to address issues of poverty and socio-economic deprivation through collaboration with government and private partners.
Since 2003, the Commission has been committed to strengthening the relationships between South Carolina’s Native American Indian communities and government.
