Overview
Young Louis Durant, a French "cour de bois" left Canada in the late 1700's seeking adventure and riches through the fur trade. Working out of a French fort in the lower Mississippi River he met and married She Ne Yah, a young Choctaw maiden. Durant became a leader in the Choctaw nation and a Captain leading a detachment of Choctaw troops fighting with General Andrew Jackson and Choctaw Chief Pushmataha in the War of 1812. Captain Durant sat with Choctaw Chiefs in the negotiations and signing of many Treaties with the United States government that led to the Trail of Tears and forced removl to the Indian Territory west of their ancestral homeland on the Mississippi River. Follow six generations of Durants as they struggle with aggressive white settlers who harass them and force them from their Mississippi homeland. Travel the Trail of Tears with them as they seek a new home in a foreign land. Discover how these pioneers in Oklahoma persevere to make a new life for their children in Texas. This is a true story of merging nationalities and a government's forced removal and imposing sovereignty on an independent, agricultural and peaceful Choctaw Nation.
