Cherokee Unicode Script

Sequoyah created the Cherokee syllabary in the late 1810s and early 1820s to record the Cherokee language. His development of the syllabary is especially noteworthy because, prior to doing so, he was illiterate. His method eventually evolved into a syllabary, though he initially experimented with logograms. The 85 (originally 86) characters in his system, where each symbol stands for a syllable rather than a single phoneme, offer an appropriate way to write Cherokee. Despite the fact that some symbols resemble Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, and Glagolitic letters, they do not reflect the same sounds.
