The Golden Years Assignment
After the Indians were removed from their lands, they settled in Indian Territory, which is present day Oklahoma.
The Chickasaws had to raise livestock to survive in their new lands. The raised cattle, sheep, and goats.
When the Native Americans came to the Indian Territory, some of them began to go back to their original religious ways instead of Christianity.
All of the tribes created their own governments as well. With some closely resembling the United States government. The Seminoles had a government different than the others due to them having multiple chiefs and councils.
One thing the Indians did continue was slavery. The Cherokees, the Seminoles, and the Creeks had slaves working for them, but the Seminoles and Creeks gave some slaves rights and land.
As years went on, the Five Tribes slowly became citizens of the United States as Indian Territory became a state called Oklahoma today.
