Transcript of Cherokee Indians Of North Carolina

Cherokee Indians Of North Carolina The Indians lived on the far western part of North Carolina from 1819-1838. Washington wanted the indians to become civilized and become christian. The Cherokee agreed because they wanted more land to build stuff on. They taught the indians how to fence fields and to plow. They Also taught the women the use of cotton, cards, spinning wheels, and looms. The indians was also taught how to read and write and dress as the whites did. In 1835 there was a Cherokee named Joseph Vann, he was a well civilized man that owned his own business. He had his own mansion. Not alot of Indians agreed to turn over to the whites because they were afraid that other Indians would take over their property. Many left because they knew their land was vulnerable to being attacked. The cherokee liked the civilization program because they believed that with the education. They wouldnt be cheated out their land or anything anymore. The indians also didnt want to look like threats because before they had to steal and kill to survive. Now they were hoping to live peacefully. Later on the whites wanted the Cherokee to leave so they all signed a treaty, in 1836, that gave them 2 years to leave and go west to Oklahoma. By 1838 few Cherokee were leaving, so the president sent soldiers to round people up and place them in stockades. By the winter the Cherokee's were pushed to leave. Of the 16,000 who traveled, only 4,000 died. The movement was called the "Trail Of Tears."
