A group of cheerleaders and students at a Friday night Ohio high school football game between the Greenfield-McClain Tigers and Hillsboro Indians featured an approximately five-foot tall banner that read, “Hey Indians, Get Ready for A Trail of TEARS Part 2.” The Trail of Tears is the name for the route that thousands of Native Americans traveled when the U.S. government forcibly removed tribes from their homelands in the southeastern United States in accordance with the Indian Removal Act of 1830. More than 4,000 Native Americans died along the route. Ooops.-TO
