Councils of Red Clay: A Capital in Exile

Red Clay State Historic Park


Councils of Red Clay will be a fifteen minute orientation film for Red Clay State Historic Park's visitor center.

The film will begin with exiled Cherokees arrival at the site in 1832 and tell the story of the struggles within the Cherokee Councils, the Treaty Party, and the tribe's conflicts with the US government. The film seeks to illuminate the significance of Red Clay and the experience of the Cherokee in relation to the Indian Removal Act.
