The Cherokee Nation is accepting applications for the 2024 Remember the Removal Bike Ride, which retraces the northern route of the Trail of Tears over a span of three weeks. The deadline to submit an application will be Sept. 15. Cherokee Nation citizens between the ages of 16 and 24 who are ultimately chosen for the program will ride approximately 950 miles in June, crossing through seven states as a testament to their physical and mental endurance. Riders retrace the same path their ancestors were forced to walk more than 180 years ago.
