Unole Dayai is the Cherokee or Tsalagi translation of "The Storm Approaches." In 1838, the forced relocation of the Cherokee Nation from Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Alabama to the Indian Territory of present day Oklahoma resulted in more than 4,000 deaths in concentration camps and along The Nunna daul Isunyi, The Trail of Tears. Soon after, in July of 1839, the Texas Cherokees were forcibly driven off their lands and into the Indian Territory of Oklahoma. This music springs from the dramatic thunderstorms and tornadoes of my childhood in the previous Texas Cherokee lands and is dedicated to my ancestors, including my great-great-grandmother who was Cherokee.
