    To the Cherokee Nation the journey west was a bitter pill forced upon them by a state and federal government that cared hardly a bit for their culture or society, and, thought that it was a rediculous thought, their justice. It was and is a travesty and tragedy of both our Georgia history and our American heritage that forced the Cherokee west along a route they called "The Trail of Tears." 1835 was a vital year in Georgia history. Three years earlier, to densify their claim to Cherokee land the

Seeking self-government, Americans fought the Revolutionary War, yet in victory they continue to treat us as a conquered people. Promises of self-government without armed conflict were made in vain. Therefore, we – the Cherokee residing in the state of Georgia – should support the treaty party led
