WE SHALL REMAIN: Trail of Tears

Monday, April 27, 2009 at 9pm on PBS (check local listings)

"The most historically accurate, I think, of any documentaries or telling of this story that I've seen in my lifetime." Actor Wes Studi (Cherokee)

Trail of Tears explores the resolve and resilience of the Cherokee Nation, who resisted removal from their homelands in the Southeast in every way they knew: assimilating, adopting a European-style government and legal system, accepting Christianity, and even taking their case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

From director Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals, Skinwalkers) Trail of Tears, the third episode in AMERICAN EXPERIENCE's five-part miniseries, WE SHALL REMAIN, premieres Monday, April 27, 2009 on PBS.

Get a sneak preview of Trail of Tears. Watch the first chapter online now!

If you missed episodes one or two watch online or on the PBS World digital channel.

I have not missed a minute of the series. Having taken steps along the Trail of Tears I will be sure not to miss this one either.

Well done series that brings up facts that we should have been taught in school about our First Nations but never were. Should be mandatory viewing in all schools.

I watched this. I'm only a very small part Cherokee. My great-great grandmother (a medicine woman) saved the life of my Scots-Irish great-great grandfather, who was shot in the base of the skull with a Derringer pistol by American-born white men for his knapsack. Without that small quotient of my blood four generations of my maternal family would not have ever been born.

Strangely I feel a deep, subconscious, generational memory of the Trail of Tears. It is especially traumatic emotionally to me as a subject. Color me crazy, but part of my DNA is chilled to the core even thinking about this event.

Thanks for the post.
