How were the Native Americans forced from their ancestral homes?
This war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our land, do a great many evil things... This war has come from robbery - from the stealing of our land. - Spotted Tail

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 - North Carolina Digital History

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 - North Carolina Digital History | How were the Native Americans forced from their ancestral homes? | Scoop.it

This act forced over 70,000 Native Americans from tribes all over the country to relocate to West of the Mississsipi in Oakahoma. Over 10,000 Native Americans died during the 1,000 mile march to the newly established Indian Territory.
