“We, the great mass of the people think only of the love
we have for our land, we do love the land where we were brought up. We will
never let our hold to this land go, to let it go it will be like throwing away
(our) mother that gave (us) birth.”. – Letter from Aitooweyah to John Ross,
Principal Chief of the Cherokee.
