The Voices of the Santee Delta project's primary purpose will be to record an oral history of this significant biological and historic area. The Santee Delta was once the location of an important branch of the Rice Kingdom, and a slave labor force whose descendants have provided a lasting Gullah culture. The voices are diverse, in ethnicity and occupations, and include biologists, plantation owners, guides, plantation managers, cooks, long time residents, and others. The oral histories (recordings and transcriptions) will reside in a collection at the South Carolina Historical Society.
