There isn't a clear answer on this. Records show that the last land given away in the Georgia land lottery was in 1832. The remaining Cherokee land was signed over by Major Ridge in the Treaty of New Echota.

It was a shameful time in American History caused by the greed to obtain Indian lands in Georgia.

The Cherokee had lived in the lower Appalachians, which includes present-day states of Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, and parts of Kentucky and Alabama. But, it started with citizens wanting the Cherokee to leave Georgia because gold was discovered on their tribal lands.

Georgia was the ancestral tribal lands for them and moving them to the reservation in Oklahoma opened the territory for settlements. This was the Trail of Tears.

No, there were many "cessations" of Cherokee lands, in many cases, Cherokee people were driven out by force. Forcing them to the west i.e. from Georgia to Alabama. For instance: The Treaty of Hopewell in South Carolina in 1786 in which the Cherokee gave white settlers some of their lands, and thought that this would appease their land lust, but after only three years, settlers would again encroach on Cherokee lands; in the Treaty of Holston in 1791 Cherokee cede land in eastern Tennessee in exchange for President Washington's guarantee that the Cherokee Nation will never again be invaded by settlers. This treaty forces Americans to obtain passports to enter Cherokee lands, and granted Cherokee the right to evict settlers. In 1802 President Thomas Jefferson agrees with the state of Georgia to removal of all American Indians in exchange for the state's claim of western lands. 1813-1814 Cherokee warriors fight alongside future president Andrew Jackson during two campaigns (5 major battles) against the Red Sticks, saving both his army and his life in separate battles, but then in 1814 Jackson demands cessions of 2.2 million acres from the Cherokee. Then in 1817 there was the cession of land east of the Unicoi Turnpike. (Treaty of Turkey Town, instead of the 2.2 million acres demanded by Jackson.) In 1819 was the final cession of land in Georgia, and part of a much larger cession, the Cherokee gave up claims to all land east of the Chattahoochee River. 1828, gold was discovered in Georgia. This discovery was on Cherokee land ceded to the U. S. in 1817 (Duke's Creek), however, gold was soon found inside the Cherokee Nation. In 1832 the Supreme Court of the United States declared the Cherokee Nation to be sovereign (Worcester v. Georgia). This has constitutional implications, disallowing the state of Georgia from passing any law governing the Cherokee. However, the Georgia Guard destroyed the Cherokee newspaper's (The Cherokee Phoenix) printing press, and soon thereafter began harassing and illegally detaining Cherokee citizens, in clear opposition to the law, with the not so silent consent of Andrew Jackson. Then, in 1835 the Treaty of New Echota was signed, and 1838 was the deadline for voluntary removal to Oklahoma. Thus beginning the Trail of Tears.

They migrated from their ancestral lands, that we now call Cherokee Nation. It was located in the southeastern U.S.(in what is now the Carolinas) for hundreds of years, prior to the arrival of European people. Answer 2 The Cherokee established their home in the mountains of North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. Most of the tribe was relocated to the Indian Nations in Oklahoma, where they reside today. This band is known as the Cherokee Nation. The Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation are the descendents of those that managed to escape the infamous "Trail of Tears" relocation to Oklahoma. They live on their ancestral lands in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, in the town of Cherokee, on the Oconaluftee River.
