Generations of historians, ethno historians, and archaeologists have lamented the meager data that exists regarding the Congaree Indians, named for a Native American group who appear in colonial records for the first time in 1691. Speaker Chris Judge provides an overview of the Congaree, addressing the possibility that they are descendants of the Chiefdom of Cofitachequi, which was visited by two Spanish expeditions in the 16th century.
