Osiyo..I have had a dead end at this I'm sorry to say, I really hope you have better luck at this. My Grandmother who was full blooded Cherokee had no birth certificate. In fact, I can barely go back on any of my trail of tears. Many blessings to you my sister in finding your way, may you prosper in your journey..Devora

I've been attempting to dig into my family history again since it's pretty hopeless to get any info out of my grandmother. I'm beginning to suspect that my family may be descended from folks that didn't get all the way to Oklahoma and settled along the Trail instead. That could explain why we don't have tribal membership and a lot of other things. Since I have absolutely no sense of the geography of the South I've decided to try walking/jogging the Trail of Tears distance here for my workouts. I've set a goal to do 31 miles a month, which I got from calculating (approximating) distance and length of time from historical data. Anyone want to join me in this challenge?

Any San Francisco area folks? Since I have no connection to Cherokee land and no longer have any connection to culture I feel morally compelled to be a better ally for local modern struggles to protect traditional and/or sacred tribal lands. There's an event coming up at the end of the month about local land struggles and I can send you the info if anyone is interested.
