The Indian Removal Act of 1830 called for the voluntary or forcible removal of all Indians from the eastern United States to the state of Oklahoma. May of 1838 marked the deadline for voluntary native removal. So began the Cherokee "Trail of Tears," one of the darkest episodes in relations between the United States and Native Americans.
As many as 4,000 deaths occurred because of this forced removal of civilized Native Americans from their rightful homes. In the end, members of the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole nations suffered the same fate as the Cherokees. Join us as we honor those from the past who traveled this Trail of Tears as we ride the Drane/Hood Overland Route. Let us learn from this mistake, accept each other as we are, and ride together in peace.
