Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Catawba Indians are aboriginal to South Carolina, and their pottery tradition may be traced to 2,400 B.C. When Hernando de Soto visited the Catawba Nation (then Cofitachique) in 1540, he found a sophisticated Mississippian Culture. After the founding of Charleston in 1670, the Catawba population declined. Throughout subsequent demographic stress, the Catawba supported themselves by making and peddling pottery. They have the only surviving Native American pottery tradition east of the Mississippi. Without pottery, there would be no Catawba Indian Nation today.

About the Author

Thomas Blumer began his work among the Catawba in 1970. He has devoted much of his professional career to helping them save and revive their culture. From 1979 to 1993, he served as Catawba historian for the Native American Rights Fund. From 1993 to 1998 he was the official Catawba tribal historian. Blumer has over 220 publications on Catawba history and culture to his credit.
