The bill not only recognizes the many contributions by Native people, but also charges the South Carolina Commission of Minority Affairs to actively work with and for the Native people of South Carolina.

Nice, BUT it would have been nice if:

1)The state would recognize Baby Veronica’s right to grow up in her tribe

2) They had included some CATAWBA in the proceedings and creation of the bill, considering they are the sole federally recognized tribe in SC.
