The Trail Of Tears Cherokee Legacy - DVD
Chip Richie's detailed account of the events that unfolded following the implementation of Jackson's Indian Removal Act provides an unflinching look at one of the darkest chapters in American history. The year was 1838, and the Cherokee Nation was being forced to relocate to Indian Territory. During the course of that long walk, nearly a quarter of the Nation perished, including elders and young children. It was a time of unparalleled suffering, and today the Trail of Tears stands as a grim reminder of the tragedy that can unfold when greed takes precedence over humanity, and ignorance wins out over compassion.
Black Indians of New Orleans
To build the future, you must know the past. But what if that past has been hidden, lost, or denied?" That question is posed by this program (part of the Circle of Life documentary series) and its answer is explored through interviews with people with mixed African and Native American heritage. Black Indians from many walks of life (including workers, scholars, and artists) discuss the search for, and expression of, their unique identity -- and the racial tensions and stereotyping they have encountered in their lives. The film also examines the history of this group of people, bringing out important aspects of its cultural and artistic heritage and considering them within a modern context. This episode is accompanied by music from Indian and black American artists and is narrated by James Earl Jones.
