Dear Teachers, PTA Presidents, and Guidance Counselors,

The Morgan Allen Platt Foundation in partnership with MUSC, The Citadel, Charleston School of Law, the College of Charleston, and the Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site (SHS) is pleased to extend an invitation to the students from your school to join us for the 5th annual American Indian Expo. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about the historical and contemporary lives of the American Indian communities native to South Carolina.

The Expo will provide an “experiential learning” opportunity that will engage students in a series of interactive educational activities which address directly the SC Department of Education academic curriculum standards. These will be clustered in the form of a timeline which will include:


  • First encounters of American Indians in South Carolina with European settlers in the late 1600’s

  • European settlement of back country from Monck’s Corner to Eutawville and other portions of South Carolina in 1730’s

  • American Indian farming, fishing, and hunting techniques

  • Military service of American Indians during the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Yamesee War, and Civil War

  • Acculturation of American Indians’ cultural, education, business, and political practices throughout the 19th century to present day

  • Replica of an authentic Indian dwelling, historical story boards, daily living exhibit, archeological exhibits, flint knapping demonstration, musical performances, games of chance and skill, and an obstacle course

Additionally, students will have the opportunity to view Santé Indian tribal artifacts and artwork from local tribes native to South Carolina.

Join us at Charles Towne Landing SHS on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, October 30th, 31st, or November 1st, 2013 from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. There is no cost to students for this wonderful educational fair. Please complete the enclosed American Indian Expo Response Form and fax to (843) 792-0433 by Friday, October 4, 2013.

You may visit our website at http://www.americanindianexpo.org for additional information or call Laurie Charles at 792-2146 should you have questions or concerns. Thank you for your consideration of this project and we look forward to seeing you at the American Indian Expo.
