History of the Beaver Creek Indians of Orangeburg South Carolina

BEAVER CREEK INDIANS A SOUTH CAROLINA STATE RECOGNIZED TRIBE THEN AND NOW

PART ONE: OUR HISTORICAL HERITAGE

Our historical forbears lived as did other Indian tribes along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. These Indians were the remnants of the first inhabitants of North America who crossed from Asia to North America by way of a land bridge. These bands of people spread out across what we know as the United States looking for the prehistoric large game such as bison, mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. As the numbers of these large game became less plentiful, the Indians began hunting, fishing and gathering plants and berries for food. They hunted smaller game and began to move about less and less and the Indian population increased. With the development of pottery making, Indians had a way to store and preserve their foods. The use of pottery was widespread among all Indians. Semi- permanent villages were formed for Indians who lived in the Southeast. Indians planted crops and made tools, jewelry and objects to be used in their ceremonies. The tribes traded with each other.
