The Removal Was Harsh For All Of Us...

The first 5 Tribes Story Conference brought out many authors, storytellers and historians from the so called Five Civilized Tribes. The event was held on the beautiful campus of Bacone College and was sponsored by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma.

This particular video seeks to illustrate the history that was not readily apparent at the conference but is clearly a part of the history of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole nations.

As Joyce Bear tells her story of hardship and pain experienced by the little boys and girls of the Muskogee people we must never forget that others along the infamous trail suffered in bondage.
