Did The removal of Native Americans from their lands by the Indian Removal Act of 1830 violated their political legal and human rights?

You might want to check out the Constitution's position on that in the 1830s--I dont think that, according to the constitution, the Native Americans had many rights at that time so perhaps their rights were not violated because they had none at all. If you were talking about the universal rights we have today regarding all beings, then they were DEFINITELY violated--they had no political say, they had no inclusion in legal rights, and they were raped, tortured, moved out of their homes, and killed brutally.
