Removal T-shirt available for $15


— Supporters can show their support for this year’s Remember the Removal riders with an official 2014 Remember the Removal T-shirt.

Proceeds from the sales of the shirts will help support the riders as they travel 950 miles across the Trail of Tears. The shirt costs $15 and is available at Cherokee Nation Gift Shop in Tahlequah and online at CherokeeGiftShop.com.

The Remember the Removal Bike Ride begins in New Echota, Ga., in late May and will follow the northern route of the Trail of Tears, ending in Oklahoma. The ride spans seven states, testing the riders’ physical and mental endurance, as well as teaching leadership and the history and struggles of the Cherokee Nation.
