Trail of Tears Favorite Links

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.
Chickasaw Council House Museum The mission of the Chickasaw Nation Museums and Collections is to reclaim and preserve our past and to carry our heritage into the future by providing a means to educate the Chickasaw people and public.

James Gilliland [] 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.
