Lunch and Learn: Really? You don’t look like an Indian…': An Examination of Native American Representation through Mascots in South Carolina

Talks/Lectures
“'Really? You don’t look like an Indian…': An Examination of Native American Representation through Mascots in South Carolina"
Hannah Bauer, SC Commission for Minority Affairs
This presentation examines the difference between the way Indigenous Americans have traditionally represented themselves (and continue to do so), the way they have been represented by others, and how these differences have culminated in a great debate: To mascot or not to mascot? Bauer brings the examination into present day South Carolina by showing where, like most places in the United States, the tradition of Native American mascots in sporting traditions still endures. She aims to amplify voices on both sides of the debate so that the audience can make an informed decision on this salient issue.

Lancaster Rocks! The Contributions of Lancaster, SC to American Popular Music

Talks/Lectures
For such a small town, Lancaster, SC has produced a surprising number of musicians and producers, not only artists who have gained fame, but ones who shaped and continue to shape American popular culture. From the earliest days of recorded music, through the R & B and Soul music eras, into the Alternative music of the 80s, and to the contemporary era, Lancaster County has produced rock and pop stars of regional, national, and international acclaim. This lecture by USC Lancaster Professor and Folklorist Dr. Stephen Criswell celebrates Lancaster’s contribution to American popular music.
To attend the lecture in person, please call (803) 313-7172 or email usclnasp@mailbox.sc.edu to reserve your spot.

From Refugees to Slave Traders: The Transformation of the Westo

Talks/Lectures
In the mid-17th century the Rickohockan Indians settled at the Falls of the James River briefly. After battling the English and the Pamunkey, they negotiated a trade deal, changed their name to Westo, and settled along the Savannah River. Their move introduced guns and Native slaving in the Southeast, and had far-reaching consequences. This talk by Dr. Maureen Meyers, Senior Archaeologist at New South Associates, will present the ethnohistoric evidence for the Westo and contextualize their action in a changing colonial economic sphere.
To attend the lecture in person, please call (803) 313-7172 or email usclnasp@mailbox.sc.edu to reserve your spot.
