The #RememberTheRemoval cyclists are now more than half way through their journey retracing the northern route of the Trail of Tears, having left Cape Girardeau, Missouri, this morning. Here is a look at today’s ride in the rolling hills of Missouri. 🚴‍♀️🚴 #WeRemember

@shellie_sh Not the Trail of Tears, Wounded Knee, Rosebud, the slaughter of native Californians, The Tulsa Massacre, Rosewood, Japanese internment, Chinese Exclusion Act nor the code-talkers, Tuskegee Airmen, 442nd Regiment, 54th Massachusetts Regiment, the 9nd Infantry - nada.

Yes, I was taught about the trail of tears but nothing about the assault on minorities voting rights which occurred in the first 2 decades of the 20th century. I knew nothing of the massacres in Tulsa Oklahoma, Wilmington North Carolina, Rosewood Florida and a host of others.

Cherokee teenagers taking their annual pilgrimage where they bike along the Trail of Tears from New Echota, GA to Tahlequah, OK. (My ancestors walked from Tennessee to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears.)

@shellie_sh My mom told me when she gave me Apache tears. The most mind boggling story I kearned, not in school, was Cherekee took the Govt to the Supreme Court over their homes being given away & won. Then Andrew Jackson ignored the court & trail of tears

@shellie_sh In the realm of coincidence, I am searching tonight for a copy of “THE REASON FOR THE TEARS: HISTORY OF CHAMBERS COUNTY ALABAMA 1832-1900 by Bobby Lindsey. My family lived there this entire span. I was taught about The Trail of Tears as it began where I live, I suppose.

@shellie_sh Oklahoman here. Yes of course we were taught about the Trail of Tears. Not about the Tulsa Race Massacre though. We were also not taught that partly what made the “Five Civilized Tribes” “civilized” was that they enslaved Black people, who also were forced on the Trail of Tears.

@Ameen_HGA We fought a civil war a century before CRT was codified. Tulsa, Rosewood, lynching, Black Laws & Jim Crow well before CRT. Trail of Tears, Japanese internment, etc... Why is the energy vs. CRT > energy vs. centuries-old ills it highlights? We know the answer

@jmoy92 Whenever I see people who say shit like, "We never learned about the Trail of Tears when I was a kid" my first thought is either 1) you probably weren't fucking paying attention or 2) that might not be a bad history class problem so much as a "your whole school is shitty" problem

@YvonneMullet @Cernovich Everyone has been taught about The Trail of Tears. Tulsa wasn't taught because it's divisive and began due to a Black man raping a White woman. (Allegedly. But, who knows. His dad was a rapist, maybe it was hereditary.) Really stupid thing to say.

@stefsull I was taught about the Trail of Tears and about Wounded Knee. I think we glossed over the Japanese internment camps. I was also taught about the Nez Perce, but that wasn't part of any official curriculum (it was just a teacher who was really into non-violent resistance)

@shellie_sh I remember in elementary school they told us it was called the trail of tears because the native Americans cried a lot when they had to move...

@goodreads Well we were taking earlier about the Trail of Tears. And it reminded me of the book so that would be mine.

@shellie_sh I grew up in Arkansas, we learned about the Trail of Tears in school, which came right through my hometown. We also played a piece in band entitled “The Trail of Tears”. My grandmother (full Cherokee) shared stories passed down through the family about that sad event.

@shellie_sh I homeschool my youngest son. He just finished 5th grade. I had to teach him about the Trail of Tears at the end of 5th.

@Mike_Potaczala @GovRonDeSantis I was taught about slavery, the Underground Railroad, abolitionists, the Civil War, the Trail of Tears, Jim Crow, and the Civil Rights movement, in high school. We did a deeper dive in college. We never failed to acknowledge our past.

@shellie_sh I learned about the Trail of Tears as a teenager from a Swedish hair-rock band in the 80s. American kids need to know about the Trail of Tears way more than they need whitewashed Columbus and Pilgrims fairytales.

@jospoke1 @Youshouldknowb6 @LadyKymberlyn @mdnij34 I've was a teacher in the DFW area for over a decade. I don't know any teacher that taught anything religious. That would have been a career-ender. I went through the OK public schools. I only learned about the Trail of Tears. Tulsa? Nope Southern affiliation in Civil War. Nope

With Trail of Tears trending, I’m recalling the summer I studied for the AP American History exam. Manifest Destiny was a giant part of that year’s curriculum. And my Dad took me to Wounded Knee on vacation. Definitely taught me not to accept curriculum blindly

@shellie_sh I remember in high school they only told us half the story of trail of tears then moved on and I was curious about the rest of the story so I snuck my history book to my parents house and read the whole thing and I remember just feeling so sad after reading the whole story.

@lexkypol Learned about Trail of Tears in school. Learned about Tulsa Race Massacre in the book “Dreamland Burning” by Jennifer Latham when I read it 2-3 years ago.

@shellie_sh You were but you didn't pay attention. No one is taught about Andrew Jackson and isn't taught the Trail of Tears.
