||The Trail of Tears Association (TOTA) is a non-profit, membership
organization formed to support the creation, development, and
interpretation of the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail. Designated
as a national historic trail by Congress in 1987, the Trail commemorates
the forced removal of the Cherokee people from their homelands in the
southeastern United States to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) in
1838 - 1839. In 1993, the Association entered into a cooperative
agreement with the National Park Service (NPS) to promote and engage in
the protection and preservation of Trail of Tears National Historic
Trail resources; to promote awareness of the Trail's legacy, including
the effects of the U.S. Government's Indian Removal Policy on the
Cherokees and other tribes (primarily the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee
Creek, and Seminole); and to perpetuate the management and development
techniques that are consistent with the National Park Service's trail plan.

[email@example.com] is the first and only flute
maker to have a flute played in outer space. One of my
river cane flutes was played on shuttle flight STS-113
and played aboard the space station. That flute was
placed into the American Indian museum in Washington two
weeks ago along with an Eagle feather that flew with it.
I am attaching a copy of the Smithsonian news. The
flutes will be 6 hole River Cane flutes and will be in
the key of F#. The flutes will be concert tuned and
lacquered. If you go to the Oregon Flute web page and go
to near the bottom of the page you will see my flutes
and my bio.
