Tribal Gatherings

The Tribal Council has declared February 17th, the date our Tribe became State recognized, as a Tribal holiday.  To celebrate this event, there will be a  Tribal gathering on February 14, 2015 at our Tribal grounds at 591 Bluewater Road, Aynor, SC.


Tribal Meetings

With the following exceptions, the Tribal meetings are held on the first Friday of each month at our Tribal office at 591 Bluewater Road, Aynor, SC.  The meetings will begin at 6:30 PM, and will continue until the business at hand is concluded.

Due to the annual Pauwau, there is no meeting in November. Additionally, the meetings for the months of January and July are held on the second Friday rather than the first Friday of the month.
