An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears
Between 1830 and 1838, tens of thousands of Native Americans were forcibly relocated by the U.S. government from their homelands in the Southeastern United States to reservations west of the Mississippi in a tragic and deadly mass migration that we now remember as the Trail of Tears. In DeLanna Studi's one-woman show And So We Walked, a contemporary Cherokee woman sets out with her father on a six-week, 900-mile journey along the Trail of Tears to better understand her own identity and the conflicts of her nation. Drawing on interviews, historical research and Studi's own experiences, this frank, funny and inspiring story wrestles with the complexities and conflicts that the Cherokee face to this day. See the premiere of this personal journey at the Gerding Theater at the Armory in Portland.
