Explore Cherokee Tribe, Native American Cherokee, and more!

Trail of Tears was the Cherokee name for what the Americans called Indian Removal. During the 1800's, the US government created an "Indian Territory" in Oklahoma and sent all the eastern Native American tribes to live there. Some tribes willingly agreed to this plan. Other tribes didn't want to go, and the American army forced them. The Cherokee tribe was one of the largest eastern tribes, and they didn't want to leave their homeland.

My people are the Cherokee. There was a time when my tribe hunted the buffalo and lived free upon the plains. The white man came and all that changed.

I love Aboriginal history , American and Canadian . To understand 2 different cultures helps understand today's problems.
