What was the Indian Removal Act of 1830? The Indian Removal Act forced thousands of Indians to leave their lands and march to Oklahoma in the middle of winter. Jackson ignored the treaty he signed that said they could stay. The Supreme Court ruled with Jackson and said they needed to leave.
Who were the "Five Civilized Tribes"? 5 tribes- the Creek, Cherokee, Seminoles, Chickasaw, Choctaw- that had adopted many white ways like farming, reading and writing. The Cherokee had their own written language, a newspaper, and a constitution based off of the United States Constitution.
