Storyboard Text

  • Treaties Between US and Tribes 
  • Per American treaties, you are no longer allowed to hold this land!
  • Attempts to Assimilate
  • We have transformed our towns to comply with American ways.
  • Cherokee Land is Valuable
  • This is our land...why are white men trespassing?
  • Treaties between the Americans and Indians, such as the Treaty of Fort Wayne, were simply attempts to evict Native Americans from their land.
  • Indian Removal Act
  • Faced with the prospect of removal, five Native American tribes decided to adopt American ways. For instance, the Cherokee, pictured here, established towns with roads and even created a Constitution. 
  • Worcester v. Georgia Supreme Court Case
  • The state of Georgia does not have the ability to remove the Cherokee!
  • Removing the Cherokee from their land will provide economic opportunities for Americans!
  • Gold is then found on Cherokee land. This persuades Andrew Jackson and Congress to pass the Indian Removal Act, benefiting Americans at the expense of the Indians. 
  • Trail of Tears and Indian Territory 
  • We have adopted American ways! What more must we have done to keep our land?
  • The Indian Removal Act was signed into law in May 1830 allowing the President to move Indians in state borders to lands west of the Mississippi (Indian Territory, Oklahoma). 
  • Jackson addressed both the welfare of Indians and Americans in his speech. Moving the Indians will definitely be beneficial to both parties.
  • The case was filed by the Cherokee against Georgia, which was trying to remove them from their land. In an unprecedented decision, Chief Justice John Marshall ruled that the Cherokee's right to the land was violated. 
  • Despite Worcester v. Georgia ruling that the Cherokee's removal was Unconstitutional, President Jackson and Congress attempted to forcibly remove them. 16,000 Cherokee were displaced and 4,000 died.
