Storyboard Text

  • Us Cherokee were moved here to Indian Territory along the Trail of Tears. My family and I are descendants of the Cherokee that marched the Trail of Tears.
  • They were marched 800 miles to Indian Territory.
  • Get moving! We don't put up with no good natives!
  • Many died due to disease, exhaustion, and malnutrition.
  • When they got there, they were greeted by a large expanse filled with nothing.
  • Many of the Cherokee were in despair.
  • Welcome to your new home!
  • The Cherokee were on the trail for one reason: the whites' greed. They found that our ancestors lived on top of land rich with gold.
  • The Georgians had violated their treaty with the Cherokee so they could get the gold.
  • We're taken your land! You'll come with us peacefully, or you won't see tomorrow.
  • Yeah! Gold is beneath our feet, and we have full rights to it!
  • As you can see, us Cherokee have lived a hard life. Not very many of us survived, but we get a little better treatment here than where we used to live with the whites.
