Welcome to my new village. Let me tell you how I got here. Get ready to go on a Journey full of hardship and sadness.
I'm sorry my people, I have failed you as a chief.
No, it's not only your fault that we have lost our land, for it was those who killed our people.
I do not know if my child can make this journey.
How could these cruel men destroy our land?
This is her story being told to you. This was a huge event in Native American history. This was the "Indian Removal Act". This happend on May 28, 1830, when all natives were limited to little land in the west.
The nearest water is far from here, I am sorry but we have to keep going.
Are you okay my child?
No mother, I am thirsty. Can we stop to get water?
Do you blame the chief? It seems that the natives think that it was the so called "Americans" to blame. It was President Andrew Jackson to be exact.
No, my child! you are only a child, why has our God taken you away from me?
Will her child make it? His mother sure hopes so.
The boy is thirsty. Is he feeling well?
Her child has passed on. Wait what is that on the ground.
In the end, this child has passed on. This mother's love was so great for her son, that these beautiful flowers sprouted when her tears hit the ground.
