Congaree Indians

The Congaree Indians were a small tribe of South Carolina, relatives of the Catawba Indians. Few records remain of the Congaree language, but it was probably a Siouan language like Catawba. The Congarees were defeated in a war with South Carolina colonists, and the survivors took refuge with the Catawba tribe, where most Congaree descendants live today.
