It's always a good thing to share the history of this country, because our so called American history course left out many Americans on purpose. Tell the truth about all not just some.

This is a film that will make you cry to learn just how badly the first americans where treated.It is a movie that will stay with you for a very long time.Not only will you learn of the injustice that was done in the 1800s but the things that are still being done today.You will also learn about black indians which a lot of people probably dont know existed. It is an extremely powerful film and even more so because all of it is true.

This DVD contains 4 actual elements: Trail of tears, black Indians, and the Carlisle attempt to assimilate Indians. The quality of the DVD is good and all of the stories give rise to the fact of Indian survival and thriving. In spite of the the US governments' attempt to rid themselves of the "Indian problem", we have thrived. The black Indians DVD is especially informative and descriptive since very little attention is given to not only the 'mixed blood' and inter-marrying of Indian people, and we could learn from this. The Carlisle "experience" is worthwhile and gives the view of a people trying to aid themselves and their children. It also left many scars that will continue to impact us.

Great documentary about Cherokee history and the Cherokee removal. Includes chapters about Cherokee healing and spirituality and ways. Nicely done and well worth the purchase. I look forward to having it in my DVD library for regularly rewatching.

ONE OF THE BEST
This is one of the finest movies I have seen on Indians as far as content and technical excellence is concerned. They also use Indian people for the caste, much better than the Hollywood actors of cowboy and Indian days.

Andrew Jackson was a mean sob.
Didn't know that. Great portrayal of what happened.

Though I had read about the trail of tears (cherokee forced relocation to steal their very well developed farmland and homes), it was nice to see depicted on the screen the life style and changes this group had made to conform to the white invasion. They probably were too well off and brought on the never ending greed of the local whites. Very informative film and also entertaining.

As someone who had relatives on The Trail of Tears, I appreciate this documentary a lot.
