Today in History we were learning about various Indian Tribes in the United States and some of their most famous members. One such member of the Cherokee tribe was Sequoya. He was famous for putting the Cherokee Language into writing. He did not make an alphabet but used "syllabary".
Here are some examples of the Cherokee Written Language.
The girls had fun using their ink wells and calligraphy pens.
Of course Sarah had several of the sounds and syllables memorized and sounded very Indian to me! :)
