Trail of Tears (Film Clip)

American PBS has produced many excellent series on numerous topics. The series “We Shall Remain” is about Native Americans. Follow this link to PBS
to watch an episode about the Trail of Tears.

The entire episode is quite long, but you can easily watch parts of it by clicking on the dots under the “screen” and to the right. As you scroll over these you will see the titles of the chapters. Chapter 7 is about the Trail of Tears itself while the other chapters tell you about the Cherokee nation and their struggle for independence and sovereignty.

Watch this episode – and others if you like – then write about what you learned.
