Chance Fletcher ’18, from Oologah, Oklahoma, is a citizen of the Cherokee nation. He took a “Great American College Road Trip” with his grandmother; when they reached Princeton, he knew he’d found his destination. As a sophomore, he hiked 900 miles of the Trail of Tears, then focused his junior independent research project on the forced removal of the Cherokee people from their ancestral lands. His journeys have taken him far from home, but closer to understanding his roots—and his dreams for the future.
