Tennessee Indians in We Shall Remain

Tracing the Trail of Tears

WTCI producing local documentary to tie in with national PBS series[M]any Chattanoogans remain ignorant of the Native American history of our area—but possibly not for long. Local PBS station WTCI was selected as one of five PBS stations nationwide to create a local community coalition as part of PBS’s American Experience’s We Shall Remain, a provocative, multi-media production that establishes Native American history as an essential part of U.S. history, slated to air on PBS nationwide in 2009.

Episode Three of the 10-hour We Shall Remain series will focus on the Cherokee and the Trail of Tears, Grove said, and therefore also include a great deal of information about the Chattanooga area.
