My name is Waya and i'm in a Cherokee tribe. This is my home. The red one right in the middle. We, my tribe, worships the number 7. Our uncle is most important in our life. The land we call home was the Great Smokey Mts., Blue Ridge Mts., Appalachian Mts., and the Great Valley of Eastern Tennessee.
A man named Andrew Jackson became President. He said we should rid of all the Cherokees. So, Waya got a job at the Local Pizza Place, and got hired.
I wake up late and look at the clock...1:00???? I was supposed to be at work at 11:00. I drive my moped there as fast as possible. Too late... ITS ON FIRE!!!
The government made 46,000 of us walk the Trail of Tears. A trail that's at least 3,000 miles long.
