This is not the Trail of Tears!
20 June 2003 | by (Triangle, Virginia) – See all my reviews

What does this movie have to do with the Trails of Tears? I watched this movie because I thought that someone cared enough to tell the story of the 70,000+ people who suffered in 1836 when the United States Government forced them out of their homes; destroyed their businesses, churches, and schools; and forced them on a death march in the middle of winter from the southern half of the United States out to the territory that would later become known as the state of Oklahoma simply because of their nationalities: Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Muscogee, and Seminole. Along the journey about ¼ of them died because of the harsh and cold weather conditions or they were shot by American soldiers because they couldn't keep up with the rest of the group, mostly children and the elderly.

This movie has absolutely nothing to do with these events. Naming it `The Trail of Tears' is an insult to the thousands of people who died and suffered because of racism and oppression.

I'm sure the creators of this movie wouldn't call it `The Jewish Holocaust' or `The African Slave Trade', so why give it a name with such historical significance when the movie itself just deals with women who are searching for their missing kids?
