Trail of Tears

Trail of Tears. This emblem pays homage to the resilience, strength, and cultural heritage of the Native American tribes affected by this tragic historical event.

The central motif features a stylized feather, representing both freedom and sorrow. The feather is surrounded by a circular pattern reminiscent of traditional Native American pottery designs. The colors are earthy and symbolic: deep red for the pain and loss, turquoise for hope and healing, and gold for the enduring spirit.

May this emblem serve as a reminder of the past, a tribute to those who endured, and a call for compassion and understanding. 🌿🌟
