    As a cousin of the grandchildren of Elizabeth Quatie, who died on the trail, and of the family of John Forsyth, a chief implementor of the policy of Presidents Jackson and Van Buren, I am grateful for this opportunity to become better informed.

    Excellent research, presentation, of our sadly oppressive American History – and its gentle reminder that it is not only possible today, but is indeed happening by our silence today. Having lived through WWII; visited Tallequah OK ‘ and active with UN NGOs related to indigenous peoples; I appreciate being awakened by yet another voice risking speaking truth to Powers.

    So interesting. Having read books like “The Trail of Tears”, I was enthralled at the factual information presented by Billie. I think we need a Rosetta Stone for Sequoia’s language. If we only could read what documents remain, we probably could learn a lot from what the native American tribes knew and thought.
