John Ross letter

This is a letter from Chief John Ross to the Senate and House of Representatives where he states "We are denationalized; we are disfranchised. We are deprived of membership in the human family! We have neither land nor home, nor resting place that can be called our own. And this is effected by the provisions of a compact which assumes the venerated, the sacred appellation of treaty." This means that the Native Americans were not happy with the ways the settlers were treating them and they felt left out of the laws that were being created and effecting the Native Americans.

This, again is the Indian removal act, but on this website there is a quote from Jackson's first inaugural address where he said "It will be my sincere and constant desire to observe toward the Indian tribes within our limits a just and liberal policy, and to give that humane and considerate attention to their rights and their wants which is consistent with the habits of our Government and the feelings of our people." This is interesting because most Native Americans would agree the trial of tears not "human" nor within the" liberal policy."
