CHEROKEE ALMANAC

The International Indian Council of 1843

In 1843, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief John Ross called a meeting of the Indian Nations that had been forcibly relocated to Indian Territory. The landmark occasion was the first of its kind, and it was documented in both words and images. In this “Cherokee Almanac,” we examine first-hand accounts of the remarkable gathering, including a missionary’s letters and a well-known painting now hanging in Gilcrease Museum.
