"It has been called the “Journey of Injustice,” what the Cherokees called the “Trail of Tears.” Between the years 1830 and 1840, these Native Americans were forcibly removed from their homes in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama and relocated west to Oklahoma.

It is one of the most tragic and selfish acts in US history, but one that is rarely talked about or receives recognition like other earth-shaking moments in our history.
