Plains Indian Headress ~ CHIEF'S CROWN - Many deeds have I done and for each I have earned a feather from the eagle, Great Spirit. I have hunted and counted coup on many enemies and have proved myself to be worthy of this crown.

I am Chief and I am proud.

'Never Forget - The Native American Genocides
"The Trail of Tears" was the forced relocation and movement of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the present-day United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. It has been described as an act of genocide. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while on route to their destinations, and many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.
