  • Tsali of the Cherokees By: Shivam Vohra
  • Gold? You mean this yellow stuff.
  • No, I think I'd better not. My sons are my partners as I was my father's. We do not need another partner.
  • Yes, yes! Where did you find it. Tell me and we could be partners.
  • You must leave soon. This land has been given away. They have found the gold.
  • That is not exactly what I was thinking about. I hear there is a gold mine on your land.
  • Glad to see you chief. I hear that you are a rich man these days.
  • I have always been a rich man. I have everything that I could every need.
  • I do not want to be rich that way. I just want to give yo this gold so I can have my ribbons and sugar.
  • Where is the old man?
  • Send the boy quickly. This land is no longer yours. It is the government's now.
  • They can't do that, its our land-nobody else's. Son, fetch your daddy.
  • Why, he's working out in the fields.
  • Tsali is the leader of a Cherokee tribe known as the Ani Keetoowah. One day, Tsali meets the missionary who tells him that they must leave the land. The land has been given away to the government who want it because of its precious gold mines.
  • We will all stay here until the militia men have left. Be as quiet as you can. We will protect our land.
  • Tsali meets the trader who asks him about his gold. Tsali says that gold is not what makes a man rich. He says it is family, shelter, food, and clothing that does.
  • You will be sent out west to Indian Territory.
  • Kill us both if you must. Our lives have been the same when we were no older than our youngest son.
  • I will never leave. This is our land and I will die for it if I have to.
  • One month later, the Georgia militia arrive at Tsali's house and demand him to come to them immediately. Tsali's wife Amanda tells the youngest son to go fetch him.
  • It is now time to head out west to your new home.
  • The youngest son goes to fetch Tsali. Tsali tells them all to go hide in the woods and wait for the militia to leave. They get Amanda as well as the older son's wives.
  • Tsali and his family are caught by the dogs the militia men used. They are taken out only to see that their house has been destroyed. The men tell them about going west to Indian Territory. Tsali refuses as well as the others.
  • As your husbands, we are telling you to go to the Indian Territory out west. It for the best of us. You will carry on the family and disappoint no one.
  • I just ask that you spare our youngest son. He has not yet become a father and must become one.
  • The youngest son and daughters are taken to the boats where they will be sent off. As they walk off, they can hear gunshots in the distance.
