Jackson ignored the rule, and a Cherokee man named Major Ridge negotiated a treaty. It sold all of the Cherokee land east of the Mississippi River.
Maybe we could have this treaty...
It will be called the Treaty of New Echota!
Several men signed this treaty, but it was all done without permission from Cherokee Chief John Ross. Three men, Elias Boudinot, John Ridge, And Major Ridge were all killed because of this.
The Treaty of New Echota gave Indians two years to move.
But I don't want to!
But we have to!
Those who didn't move were first kept in crowded areas called stockades.
Then, 15,000 Cherokee Indians were forced to walk from Georgia to Oklahoma. About 6,000 Indians lost their lives.
Don't worry, there are still Indian settlements all over the U.S. But it is important to remember this tragic event, so we can appreciate what we have now.
