Thank you, Louis, for this interesting note.  Dale van Every, whom I
read about 40 years ago (and who was somewhat of an apologist for
American expansionism over North America), wrote a moving book on the
Cherokee removal that corroborates much of what you are saying.

Of course, this history raises an issue that Hunter may want to
elucidate on.  Were the Cherokee and others in the kind of tribal mode
that Hunter often describes?  Or is the history and current reality
more variegated than that?
