DIGADOHI: Lands, Cherokee and the Trail of Tears

DIGADOHI: Lands, Cherokee and the Trail of Tears

Feeds on Saturday, August 22 @ 1100 – 1200ET/HD04   sIX

 

Digadohi means lands in Cherokee and the story of genocide and ethnic cleansing is recorded in the archaeology at places along the Trail of Tears and in the traditions and family histories of the Cherokee today. The film chronicles archaeological excavations at witness sites along the trail including the Snelson-Brinker farm in Missouri, where on July 4th, 2017 the historic cabin was burnt to the ground. Using cutting-edge archaeological methods and archival research, researchers, community activists and Cherokee leaders work to rescue a historic property from the arsonist's flames and preserve the memory of the Cherokee who died there.
