    A young Native American boy goes with his father down to trade goods for food, some men were cruel to the boy and his father defended him and he got shot. The boy went back home and his mother and him grieved and were sad, but still tried to live their lives. Soon they had a big snow storm and the meat the boy had hunted got moldy and his mother died, and he buried her. Soon enough, he went back to try and sell goods to eat, and the men told him to behave...afterwards, some say he was sent to a boarding school, some say he joined a rodeo, but all say they see him at his mothers grave.

    About the hardships that that came upon a Nation. A time when most AMERICAN [CHERokee] Indians struggled with hunger, shame and hate to survive and stay alive within the white man's culture. Where The Elder Spirit Kin in presence with the Fathers, their sons and daughters that never understood the greed,plunder and deceit by way of the white man's Church and Government that saw and took away the pride of a once proud Nation that knew the true meaning of love in a community village to raise healthy and proud children together as blood brothers and sisters that watched out for each other, until almost to the last ones in line that were scattered to the 4 winds to die out one by one without a friend down in ''CHEROKEE BEND'' .
