The story of the Cherokees is told through scenes from "lJnto These Hills" the outdoor drama in Cherokee, North Carolina that depicts the story of the Cherokees. The video centers around an Indian named Tsali. Tsali's wife was murdered by a soldier who Tsali subsequently kills. He then flees to a hiding place in the mountains with his sons. The commander of the army makes a deal that if Tsali will give himself up then the others who had fled to hiding places in the mountains could go free. Emphasis is on the removal of the Cherokees to Oklahoma between 1817 and the 1840's in the infamous "Trail of Tears."
