The Cherokee Removal is a collection of primary and secondary source materials for the high school classroom. Materials included for download here are the two GIS based activities that are part of a larger collection of Cherokee Removal teaching resources found at: The complete collection also includes written, photo, and static map items and related activities. The goal of the unit is to allow students to gain a more thorough understanding of this important event in American history as they compare and contrast various views of Cherokee life through the information available in a federal census of the tribe made in 1835 at the time of removal. The GIS activities make this possible by providing access to census data that can be interpreted within the context of a variety of more traditional historical sources.
