"Trail of Tears" Movie -- Oberlin Indigenous Peoples' Day Film Series

sundance's picture

This movie explores the resolve and resilience of the Cherokee people, who resisted removal from their homelands in the Southeast in every way they knew: assimilating, adopting a European-style government and legal system, adopting Christianity, and even taking their case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Though the Cherokee won recognition of tribal sovereignty in the U.S. Supreme Court, their resistance to removal from their homeland failed and in 1868 thousands were forced on a perilous march to Oklahoma. More than 4,000 people died on that forced march. The Cherokee call it Nu-No-Du-Na Tlo-Hi-Lu, "The Trail Where They Cried."

This event is open and free to the public.
