Storyboard Text

  • Hi I am a cherokee native american and the reason i'm in oklahoma it is a long story.
  • It all started when president Andrew Jackson signed the indian removal act which stated that all native americans had to be taken to oklahoma also known as the indian removal act.
  • Since the president signed the indian removal act americans destroyed native americans homes and forced them to walk on the trail of tears.
  • Many native americans died on the 850 mile walk to oklahoma it was very sad.
  • And this is why a lot of native americans went to oklahoma.
