Most of Georgia and Georgians interacted poorly with native tribes. Georgia was originally a British penal colony, so the persons that met the natives were not of the highest caliber. Federal law, treaties and judges ordered settlers off Cherokee lands on numerous occasions but all were ignored. When gold was discovered, the state of Georgia declared war on what they called the "Creek and Seminole Indians". Georgians covertly provided the natives with blankets that had been exposed to small pox in an effort to thin their enemies down. Eventually, Georgia forced all native tribes on the Trail of Tears to Oklahoma.
