Trail of Tears was a series of forcible relocations of American Indians in the wake of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Members from the Cherokee, Seminole, Muscogee, Choctaw and Chickasaw nations were sent from their homes in the Southeast to land west of the Mississippi.
This pin illustrates the harsh conditions American Indians endured while being relocated. The people travelling this trail are covered by blankets and shawls, but it doesn’t look warm enough against the harsh winter weather. The starkness of the black border with the white snow complements the starkness of the American Indians’ situation. Add this pin to your collection as a way to remember the American Indians who were forced to endure this trail.
