The Yamassee tribe was critical to the formation of the Lowcountry, but very few people know their story.
Now one developer is doing his part to preserve the past, on land he owns, which was once belonged to them.
The Chief of the Yamassee tribe. A representative from Senator Tim Scott’s office. Archeologists, homeowners, and developers all at the same table. All connected for one goal, protecting history while developing the future.
“It’s really for us a thing of respect,” said Chief Sekhu Hadjo. “We are being given respect and we are being honored as well by the Bull Point Association and its members.”
The History of the Yamassee Tribe:
The meeting is the first of its kind, and it comes after 13,000 different artifacts were found inside Bull Point Plantation over the years, all belonging to the Yamassee tribe.
“Knowing that there were artifacts here that were uncovered its important to make sure we showcase the history not just bury it in the past,” said Billy Gavigan, Developer of Bull Point Plantation.
