The Trail of Tears: Cherokee Legacy

Series/Documentary | English | 1 season (5 episodes). Each episode is approximately 25 minutes


Trail of Tears: Cherokee Legacy (first two episodes) examines the horrendous effects of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 that was passed by Congress and signed by President Andrew Jackson. The Act forced thousands of Native American tribes residing in the Southeastern United States to trek by foot 800 miles to the Oklahoma region. Without adequate supplies or warm clothing, many Native Americans died on this journey. Historians called this journey, the Trail of Tears.

Why Stream This Film?
The United States Congress has passed a few pieces of legislation that today are considered horrific and shameful. The Indian Removal Act, depicted so vividly in this documentary, probably stands near the top  of that list.

THE TRAIL of TEARS: CHEROKEE LEGACY offers no ease into the story of the 1838 forced removal of Cherokees from their southeastern homes to what is now Oklahoma. Steve Heape and Chip Richie tell the story from the displaced people’s point of view in this enraging, moving and very necessary film.
