The description states:

Martin Teehee, Cherokee Indian of Miami, Oklahoma, welcomes you to visit the famous ‘over the road’ Glass House Restaurant on the Will Rogers Turnpike, Vinita, Oklahoma. The Cherokee settled in the Eastern port of Oklahoma, having come from Virginia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.

–The Cherokee migration alluded to above, known now as the Trail of Tears, was in fact a series of forced relocations of the Cherokee and other tribes from their homelands, beginning in 1830 by President Andrew Jackson.

This card likely dates from the 1960s.
