If it was said by an Indian on the Trail of Tears, it would have been a
Creek rather than Cree; the latter are in northern Quebec, the Creek were in
what's now south Georgia and Alabama. There's a Creek reservation down in
Escambia County, AL, close to the FL line; apparently Federal troops and
state militias didn't round up all of them.

I would vote for making that editorial correction, and maybe putting in
something about the last SUV, too, to jazz it up for modern readers.
