What: Trail of Tears Walk
When: Saturday, May 18, 2019 beginning at 10:00 a.m. CDT
Where: Choctaw Nation Capital Grounds at Tvshka Homma
Hundreds of Choctaw tribal members and friends will gather Saturday, May 18, at the Choctaw Capitol Grounds to honor those affected nearly 200 years ago by the Indian Removal Act. The commemorative 2.5-mile Trail of Tears Walk is only a fraction in comparison to some 700 miles covered by foot in the 1830s when Choctaws were removed from their homelands in Mississippi and Alabama.
