Summary In the early 1800s, the U.S. government attempted to rid the Southeast of Indians in order to make way for trading networks, American emigration, optimal land use, economic development opportunities, and, ultimately, territorial expansion westward to the Pacific. The difficult removal of the Chickasaw Nation to Indian Territory-later to become part of the state of Oklahoma- was exacerbated by the U.S. government's unenlightened decision to place the Chickasaws on lands it had previously provided solely for the Choctaw Nation
