Storyboard Text

  • Part of the American government thought it was alright to relocate the Natives
  • Andrew Jackson saw that it be fit to ask the Natives to move from the land so America could expand their own.
  • Others thought it was wrong and unconstitutional since they were there first
  • The American government tried to negotiate with the Natives, but the Native reasonbly argued that they were there first so therefore had the right to stay where they were.
  • After the Natives refused to move, Jackson proposed that the American government force them to move out if they were not to abide.
  • This was known as the Worcester v. Georgia case.
  • The Supreme Court ruled that the states did not have the right to impose regulations on Native American land. Jackson refused to enforce the ruling.
  • Some tribes tried to assimilate to avoid conflict like the Choctaw and Creek tribes.
  • Others that stood their ground were forced to relocate.
  • The Natives were forced to relocate and march over 1,200 to reach their new home
  • This became known as the Trail of Tears.
  • Over 4,000 of these Indians died of disease, famine, and warfare, until 1850 when the Trail of Tears was finally over.
