Storyboard Text

  • ugh I hate this 
  • White Americans, particularly those who lived on the western frontier, often feared and resented the Native Americans they encountered
  • the Cherokee nation negotiated the Treaty of New Echota, which traded all Cherokee land east of the Mississippi for $5 million
  • By 1840, tens of thousands of Native Americans had been driven off of their land in the southeastern states and forced to move across the Mississippi to Indian territory.
  • “Indian country” shrank and shrank. In 1907, Oklahoma became a state and Indian territory was gone for good.
