    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Many Cherokee intermarried with Scots-Irish settlers, came to own and farm land (some even owning slaves), and adopted the English language and religion. Their status as a sovereign nation was upheld by the US Supreme Court but was continually undermined by Andrew Jackson and those who believed that states had the right to ignore Federally-negotiated treaties.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Gayle Ross (modern-day Cherokee): (on the Cherokee's reliance on Federal law to keep their lands in the face of Georgia's determination to absorb it) They followed the law. They followed the policy of government to government relationship.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Produced by a large team of professional documentary filmmakers, academic experts, as well as a number of Native American writers, directors, crew, and advisors, this five-part project is the most expensive and one of the most lengthy ever undertaken by American Experience.
