  1. My hometown marks the beginning of the Cherokee trail of tears. Every year they honor those who walked it. Thousands of people ride motorcycles, bugees, etc in a giant motorcade from Alabama to Oklahoma. There is lots of festivities in commemoration. My grandmas house is right along one of the roads the trail takes. We would all get together ebery year and watch them go by from her front yard.

  2. Extermination project? Really? Literally talking about how they tried to buy the land from the natives and when they refused they forced them out with violence. If it was an extermination then they would go straight to war. This is liberal progressive propaganda

  3. I can only begin to imagine the countless conquests and treaties that were broken in the Americas prior to the Europeans – but for some reason, we get all the flak for it because we were the most successful and I guess we are required to take all the guilt

  4. Native American (Navajo) right here! I was born and raised on an “Indian” reservation, then moved to the southern states (Tennessee/ Alabama).
    Which after learning the history here, it’s so sad to see many towns/ cities/ counties with Native American names that were once home to a thriving community of Native Americans (especially Chattanooga, TN)…. yet no sign of Native Americans AT ALL. And even the local people are always so fascinated with meeting me because I’m always the first “real Indian” they’ve met. It seriously pains me deeply when I think about it.
