Arriving in Indian Territory - Water Route

Cherokee detachments that traveled the water route passed through present-day Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge. Members of all five tribes passed by here, traveling on the "Trail of Tears." Their destination was based on each tribe's geographical allotment in Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma).
