THE CHEROKEE LANGUAGE

Sequoyah is credited by historians as the inventor of the Cherokee 
syllabary.  However, ancient lore asserts there was a written 
Cherokee language thousands of years ago.  According to legend, the 
primeval Cherokee written language was lost as the tribe migrated 
across the continent and their numbers dwindled according to living 
conditions and influences of more numerous neighbors.

				Yours,
