Trail of Tears Cherokee Legacy - A Rich-Heape Film

Trail of Tears Cherokee Legacy receives Nama for "Best Long Video"

Known worldwide as “The Nammys” - Nama (Native American Music Awards) is an ultimate celebration of music & video honoring the outstanding achievements of today’s leading Native American artists.

“Trail of Tears Cherokee Legacy” explores America’s darkest period: President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act of 1830 and the forced removal of the Cherokee Nation to Oklahoma in 1838. Nearly a quarter of the Cherokee National died during the Trail of Tears, arriving in Indian Territory with few elders and even fewer children.
