A GIFT OF CHEROKEE LANGUAGE LESSONS
Anyone can play and learn, anyone!
If you’re not a Cherokee
language speaker, or you know a few words and wish to know enough
Cherokee to use with your family and friends and finding time to study
has been a problem, then the great Sequoyah and chief Charles Jahtlohi
Rogers have a special gift for you that’s really fun - a game named
“Sequoyah”. Just start by clicking the game box, then print the
contents - 10 player cards and 54 phonetic cards of Cherokee words
written in English. You and your whole family - kids too - can play and
learn Cherokee while ar the same time having lots of fun!
Simply cut out the 54
phonetically written Cherokee word cards. Place them - face down - in
the center of the table. Each player takes a turn drawing a card and
pronouncing the Cherokee word aloud. All players look for that word on
their player boards. If they find it there, they mark it with a coin.
When they have four words in a row, they shout “Sequoyah!” and win that
round. Reshuffle and play again. Play as many rounds as you want to.
There are 14 different Cherokee word games with approximately 400 nouns
and 300 phrases. Now,you and your family can learn and live your
heritage. So you will be, as Sequoyah hoped, reading and writing
Use your computer to print these
games by clicking on the game boxes below. After you click on a box,

boards and 8 pages containing 54 phonetic word cards. Cut out the
cards, but do not cut the player boards! The cards are the size of
playing cards and are numbered 1 through 54 at the bottom left hand
You and your whole family - kids
too - can play and learn Cherokee while at the same time having lots of
