Yuchi (Tsoyaha) Indigenous People · # 475 Racist Tennessee -- It is rather mind boggling that so many other tribes were removed – DEPORTED – under hardship and brutality, and it is only the Cherokee that get mentioned in that context. It has become THE "Cherokee Trail of Tears" – even the National Park Service has made it rather entirely a Cherokee suffering! Slowly the Dominant Culture & the Cherokee are rewriting history to write all other Indigenous Americans out. This map is rather telling as well -- Note: no tribes are removed from the Central Atlantic States, yet we know that many remained in Virginia (including West Virginia), North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee & Kentucky. Many of these Indigenous peoples are now state recognized in Virginia, North Carolina & South Carolina – but NOT in Tennessee – which so many believe was bleached White. If the Indigenous peoples of this region were not removed – are they not likely still here, as historical records show? Why, other than racism does Tennessee refuse to acknowledge its citizens of Indigenous heritage?
