Has any source of the language been found in Cherokee, NC. That was the original home of the Cherokee people, before the Trail of Tears.

There is also a wonderful Outdoor Drama named “Unto these Hills”, now in its 59th year of production. The website is below.

I am totally amazed by the Endangered Alphabets Project, and look forward to more posts!

Absolutely. In fact, I’m writing an article for American History magazine on the efforts to revive the Cherokee language, and I’ve interviewed several people in North Carolina who are very active in the teaching and expansion of Cherokee.

I hope that when you come to visit ETSU you stop by Cherokee N.C. I remember seeing Unto the Hills when I was a child.

I think the idea behind this is very interesting, especially in correlation with your project, but I think this piece might focus a bit too much on logistics, like the lay out of the streets and town. I kind of lost you there.

At the end of the piece it says “More to come.” Where can I read more about your musings on this town or on the Cherokee?
