A Double Negative?
As an open ended answer, the following are NOT reasons used by the United States Government for moving the Indians from their lands by force:
The Cherokees had to move cause the settlers found out that the Cherokees found gold.The Cherokee moved west because President Andrew Jackson and the US Army ignored the ruling of the US Supreme Court and forced them at gun point to go.
To get some pepe.
Settlers moved West to make a better living, and the opportunity to buy land
so they could own slaves because it was legal in the west
They wanted the free land and gold
The Creeks and the Cherokees were among the tribes moved West on the "Trail of Tears" on the orders (illegal by the way) of President Andrew Jackson.
Many of the Cherokee were forced from the Carolinas and Georgia and moved to Oklahoma.
Because the white men were coming and the moved the Indians to oklahoma, also known as the trail of tears.
Cherokees were a tribe where literacy rate was nil, they were dependent on agriculture or traditional textile. While the other segments had moved to industrialization, Cherokees took time to catch up so they were in poverty for long.
the Indian Removal Act

The reason the Californios moved west was because they wanted to build missions and convert the Native Americans to Christianity. This was the goal of many Spanish settlers.
Andrew Jackson believed that Native Americans should accept white culture or be moved to western territories. Jackson didn't think that they could have their own governments within the borders of the U.S.
which southeastern tribe was the first to be moved west?
Cherokees were in GA and they had to be moved to Oklahoma so.. it happened between GA to Oklahoma 800miles!
The Cherokee homes were permanent because they lived in wig wams and longhouses.
the kind of people that moved west were pioneers.
Mormons moved west to escape religious scrutiny.
The United States had massive amounts of federal land. The government was willing to give it away to anyone who wanted to farm it. That was the major reason why Americans moved west.
This sad relocation of the Cherokees occurred after Jackson left office, but he set in motion the idea that Indians must be moved out of GA and Alabama into land west of the Mississippi, so must share some of the responsibilty
