Storyboard Text

  • The Cherokee nation resided peacefully in the state of Georgia
  • In 1828 the state of Georgia passed a series of laws stripping the Cherokee nation of their rights. These laws also ordered removal of Cherokees from the lands that the state was after
  • After citing negotiated treaties saying that the cherokee nation was an independent, and saying that they didn't need to obey the rules  and sought an injunction at the supreme court against Georgia
  • The Supreme Court ruled that it lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case because  the indians were both a foreign nation and one within the U.S. Basically they were independent, but they depended on the nation to much to be considered independant. They concluded they could not hear the case.
  • In 1830 Georgia passed a law requiring citizens to have and obtain a license to live inside Cherokee nation. Missionaries living there refused to obtain such a license. They were locked up
  • On review of this case. The court ruled that because the Cherokee nation was a separate political entity, Georgia could not enforce their license rules and should overturn them.
