HONORED Guests: ALL FIRST NATIONS INDIVIDUALS IN THE UNITED STATES WHO ARE DESCENDANTS OF THOSE ANCESTORS WHO WALKED THE TRAIL OF TEARS
The State of Tennessee has finally understood and is willing to sincerely apologize (express “regret”) for the impact and what was done to Native Americans in Tennessee as a result of the Trail of Tears.
This will be a beginning for healing! This is for everyone!!!
We hope surrounding States will see what is happening and do the same.
We pray that healing and restoration will take place among First Nations people and that Creator will touch those gathered together for reconciliation. —Chief Joseph RiverWind
