    Cherokee Indian Nation

    My name is Little Dove. My people are the Cherokee. There was a time when my tribe hunted the buffalo and lived free upon the plains. The white man came and all that changed. My people no longer hunt. My people are no longer free to roam the plains. The white man has changed everything. I long for the time when my people lived free and hunted the buffalo. I am the last of my tribe, when I am gone, all that will be left is a memory in history.

    The Cherokee Language

    "The Trail of Tears" was the forced relocation and movement of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the present-day United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. It has been described as an act of genocide. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while on route to their destinations, and many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.
