H4-24: MAKING WORDS

By Katie Nuzzi

Sequoya was a Cherokee Indian who developed the first written Cherokee language. It took around fifteen years and a lot of convincing, but Sequoya never gave up besides the ridicule of the other tribe members.

All Native Americans were called savages because they were different. One tribe changed these views, however, by creating a written language, and mixing into the English way of life. Even after this change the settlers still took Indian lands. Life on the frontier was terrifying. This disagreement between the Native American tribes led to a tragic event called the Indian Removal.

The tribe would not have been inspired to mix into some English culture, and not have adapted as much into that same culture as well.

ANSWER

If Sequoyah had not created a Cherokee alphabet, how would the tribe have been affected?
