June 24th – July 8th Spoke’n Rev Remembers The Removal

You're forced to leave your home, right now!

From June 24th - July 8th the Spoke’n Rev cyclists will get a sense of what that’s like to be forcibly be removed from your home. They’ll travel the route of another historic trail in America. The Trail of Tears.

The Trail of Tears was a series of forced relocations of North Carolina Cherokee, and other Native American nations in the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830.

These tours are “'project-based learning at its best, combining travel to powerful places with authentic experience of history and geography, collaboration towards a common goal, and intense physical activity.”1
