Waccamaw Indian People focus of lecture

The history, customs and traditions of the Waccamaw Indian People will be the focus of a lecture at Coastal Carolina University on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in Wall 309. Guest speakers will be Chief Harold (Running Wolf) Hatcher and Second Chief Helen (Proud Eagle) Blodgett. The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by Coastal's Office of Multicultural Student Services.

The Waccamaw Indian People is a local tribe consisting of descendants of Native Americans who inhabited an area of South Carolina now known as Dog Bluff near Aynor. The settlement is referred to as the "Dimery Settlement."
