The Government is moving all of the Native Americans out of our homes and moving us to an “Indian reservation” where we will be forced to live in Oklahoma and start a new life and rebuild our tribes. We will all have to start over with our lives when we already had a good one. We all will be forced to walk to Oklahoma with nothing more than what we can carry. The government is moving all of our tribes the Cherokees, Muscogee’s, Seminoles, Chickasaws, and the Choctaws.

And for what? There moving all of us for our land. We cannot even pick crops on our own land without being arrested. This is our land not theirs. We have our rights too. The American government does not get to make all the decisions.

If you are going to make us leave our land. Let us leave by ourselves. From now 1830 and into the future everyone will know what happened when they hear the name “The Trail of Tears”. They will know that thousands of Native Americans walked this trail to Indian reservations in Oklahoma.
