The Impact of European Settlement on the Native Americans of Georgia
Georgia's early history is rich with Native American culture. Several tribes, including the Apalachees and Cherokees, lived on the land for many years. After Europeans, such as Hernado DeSoto, arrived in the New World, other tribes were forced into the area. During the 19th century, Native American tribes were kicked out of Georgia, even though the Supreme Court ruled this to be unconstitutional. Many of the tribes that were forced to leave Georgia ended up on reservations in Oklahoma. Primary sources and engaging images bring history to life on each spread. Readers will walk away with a better understanding of Native American cultures through the history of Georgia.
