A Cultural Community Center for the Catawba Indian Reservation

James R. Stevenson, Clemson University


The Catawba Indian Nation was once one of the largest and most powerful Indian nations in the southeast. Over the years as a result of disease, poor social conditions, and assimilation into the white culture, the Catawba Indian Nation has been reduced to less than two thousand known members of blood decent. The majority of these Indians live on what is known as the Catawba Indian Reservation.
