The picture below is Sequoyah, the man behind the entire written language of the Cherokee. I could spend lots of time telling you his story, but instead I’ll direct you to a website that says it all beautifully. Please take a few moments and read all about this remarkable man who brought about one of the single most important and life-changing events to the Cherokee people and the Cherokee Nation as a whole.

Above: The original hand-written syllabary system created by Sequoyah.

To the right: The modern-day syllabary chart we use today.

 

 

 

This sign is hanging on the wall of my home office.

It means:

Don’t be bothering me while I’m writing.
