Catawba Indian Nation proud of ‘The Reservation’

The Catawba Indian Nation is proud to support the Indian Land community in naming the Indian Land High School Stadium “The Reservation.” This brings honor and respect to the Catawba people who were the first inhabitants of Indian Land.

Indian Land gets its name because the Catawba used to live and hunt there. As a matter of fact, the Indian Land community was once part of the reservation. After several treaties, the land was taken by the state and divided among settlers who had befriended the Catawba.

Again, it is an honor to have Indian Land High School name its stadium “The Reservation.” The Catawba Indian Nation applauds the Indian Land community in its desire to maintain an ongoing historical relationship with the tribe.
