Although I do know that a cause of this sudden disruption was the discovery of gold on our land, this does not change the fact that our fathers, yours and mine, have taken part in multiple agreements over the years which established these land boundaries. However, it has recently become aware to me that it seems we have entered into a Treaty of New Echota, which promises us land in the West, money, and compensation for our lands lost, given that we remove ourselves from our native land within two years time. I have several grievances regarding this agreement, the first of which being that the treaty is not a true binding settlement.
