John as he passes. She is supported by two young Cherokee women.

John turns to look. He sees it is Moon and smiles. John turns and gets on the nearest wagon bed to makes a speech.  

He looks around the beaten crowd.

JOHN ROSS

Cherokee, you survived a perilous

"Trail of Tears". Orphans of our

soldiers and the unfortunate of

this trail are among us. Take them

and the old into your homes. They

are the seeds of a new nation. The

greed of politicians has driven us

to this new land and killed half of

our people. I say never again will

we allow the discrete execution of

our tribe. I have discovered the

regal spirit of our people through

this horrible rein of terror and

with the power of that spirit we

will survive and prosper.

The Cherokee weakly cheer. John gets down from the bed of the wagon and helps unload it. He feels a chill and looks toward the forest.

John sees a shadow ripple past a tree in the forest.

He hesitates then walks past his people, blind to their

existence. John walks on.

EXT. FOREST

He turns into the forest toward a small grassy opening. John steps into the opening. He relaxes slightly and looks around. John is uneasy. He speaks to himself.

JOHN ROSS

I feel you, Quatie. I miss You.

John's eyes are filled with tears. He hears a faint roll of

thunder. The sky is brighter. John looks into the sky.

He sees a beautiful white cloud roll across the sky above
