We’re learning about the Trail of Tears in my ELL U.S. History classes.

I’ll be out on Wednesday, and students will be watching this video.

Here’s a description:

the National Park Service, in collaboration with the Cherokee Nation, produced a video which tells the story of the Trail of Tears from the Cherokee perspective. The 30-minute documentary was written by Cherokee Nation citizen Shane Smith, and tells the story of the Cherokee families who experienced the Trail of Tears, often telling the story in the Cherokee language.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People.
