Film Screening - We Shall Remain

We Shall Remain is a provocative multimedia project that establishes Native American history as an essential part of American history. This film in the series tells the story of Cherokee removal from their traditional home land. Though the Cherokee embraced “civilization” and won recognition of tribal sovereignty in the US Supreme Court, their resistance to removal failed. As a result, thousands were forced on a perilous march to Oklahoma, a journey known as the Trail of Tears.
