Remember the Removal: Cherokee Riders Retrace the Trail of Tears

Follow along as a team of seven members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee join Cherokee riders from Oklahoma to retrace the Trail of Tears.  This year’s riders are Jeremy Hyatt, Tatsi Nelson, Skye Littledave, Judy Castorena, Carmen Johnson, Chi Sawyer and Jeremy Wilson.  Over the next three weeks these intrepid travelers will ride close to a thousand miles to commemorate the forced removal of the Cherokee from their homeland via a deadly winter march in 1838 and 1839.  This was a dark time in American history that we should never forget.

Check out the Cherokee Riders here.

Be sure to visit Hugh Lambert’s blog as well.  I’m sure he’ll be posting the most current news of the rider’s progress.
