Throughout the year USCL sponsors public events at the Native American Studies Center
highlighting the traditions of South Carolina’s Native peoples, but every year around
March or April USC Lancaster hosts Native American Studies Week. Through the efforts
of the NAS faculty and committee, USCL offers a series of events celebrating local
Native American history, culture, art, music, and dance on campus and at the center.
