The Cherokees were not provided enough clothing, food, or shelter. Many died along the journey known as the Trail of Tears. They endured tremendous suffering during the involuntary movement. It had extreme temperatures and weather conditions and the Indians did not have the sufficient clothing to deal with the forecast (eoa.auburn.edu).
At least 4,000 Cherokees died along the journey to present day Oklahoma. They had hard time transitioning to the new land under harsh conditions. They were stripped of their culture as well (Davidson 539).
