Native American Legislation

The South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs is the State of South Carolina’s official point of contact for Native American Indian Affairs. We serve as the Indian Affairs Commission for the State as listed with the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Governors’ Interstate Indian Council and various states’ Indian Affairs Commissions.

The Institute assists in preparation of plans for the alleviation of such needs by presenting information to policy makers and appropriate officials of local, state, and federal governments. All legislation concerning the Native American Indian population of South Carolina, is reviewed through the Institute.
