Cherokee Language Now Available in Braille

Cherokee language in braille

The Cherokee Nation has worked with the Commonwealth Braille and Talking Book Cooperative earlier this year to develop a Cherokee version of Braille. Dot patterns were derived from the 86-character Cherokee syllabary.  The Cherokee writing system has been in use since 1821, but it is only now that Cherokee braille is available.
