Cherokee Schools: A Sacred Path

Record #:
In 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act into law, allowing the government to force many American Indians to leave their home lands. Some Cherokee tribes remained in North Carolina and became known as the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation. Today, they run schools in Cherokee, North Carolina and preserve their culture through the buildings, education, and community on campus.
