Today, May 23 – The remaining promises of the Treaty of New Echota
It was a simple, but contested, proposition: The Cherokee Nation would relinquish its land in the southeast United States in exchange for $5 million and a new homeland in what is now Oklahoma. The document that sparked the Trail of Tears was steeped in fraud and bad faith by the federal government, but remains on the books. On the anniversary of its ratification, we re-look at the Treaty of New Echota and the promises the government has yet to deliver, including a Cherokee delegate to Congress.
