People Of South Carolina

Discover the history of both Native American and African Americans and the impact they’ve had in the Palmetto State. South Carolina’s state parks protect some of the most important and interesting Native American sites in the state, and almost all state parks contain remnants of the lives and culture of these native people. You can also walk the same historic ground where African-Americans lived, worked, struggled, worshipped, played, laughed, raised families and built lasting communities over generations.
