The Trail of Tears represents a significant moment in the history of Native Americans.  The Trail tells the story of the Cherokee Nation and it's removal from its lands East of the Mississippi to Indian Territory, which is now Oklahoma.  The Trail is the story of us.  It reminds us of where we've been and who we are!
