#ThisDayInHistory
On Monday, April 22, 1889, at high noon, starting signals were given and the Land Run of 1889 was under way. It was a day of chaos, excitement, and utter confusion. An estimated 50,000 people surrounded the Unassigned Lands at the many points of entry, all hoping to stake a claim. Under the provisions of the Homestead Act of 1862, a legal settler could claim 160 acres of public land, and those who lived on and improved the claim for five years could receive a title. There were approximately 11,000 agricultural homesteads claimed. Learn more about the Land Run of 1889 and the circumstances surrounding it—bit.ly/1889LandRun.

Today we commemorate the 180th anniversary of the end of the infamous Trail of Tears with a national day of remembrance.

From Principal Chief Bill John Baker's latest column:

"On this day in 1839, the last detachment of our ancestors’ forced removal from their homelands in the southeast region of the United States occurred as they marched to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma.

We remember and honor the sacrifices and untold hardships of our ancestors. Those who completed the trek and those who perished on that brutal journey will always remain in our hearts and in our minds.
Their indomitable spirit to live despite the odds stacked against them enabled them to survive the treacherous journey. It is that same spirit that allowed them to rise above and to create a new home for themselves and their children."

Ethnic cleansing. Genocide. Those are powerful words that many Americans might associate with other, far-off lands and times: Armenia. Bosnia. Rwanda. Nazi Germany. But historians say it also happened in this country.

Wilma Mankiller (Oklahoma Hall of Fame Class of 1994) was named the first director of the Cherokee Nation Community Development Department in 1981. Two years later, she became Deputy Chief of the Cherokees — marking the first time a woman held the position.

She went on to become the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation in 1985, was re-elected in 1987 and won by landslide again in 1991 (receiving 82.7% of the vote). In 1998, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
