About The Event

“While we live in the shadow of Andrew Jackson, today we can come together in reconciliation and acts of repentance to renew the broken relationships of the past,” said Melba Checote-Eads. “The walk is just one step in healing the tragic past. The memorial brings remembrance of those who died along the many Trail of Tears that cross our country. Reconciliation between two cultures, this walk is a step toward true reconciliation of what had ended in the removal of a whole race of people. We pray the blessings on all people, inviting you to be part of this walk.” Melba Checote-Eads (Muscogee Creek Nation)
