Cherokee. The Cherokee syllabary was invented by a member of the Cherokee nation named Sequoya around 1821. Sequoyah simply took the shape of some English letters and assigned new syllabic values to them. The other signs do not resemble any English letter, and therefore were likely invented by Sequoya. Location: Americas > North America. Time:1821 CE to Present. Direction: Left to Right.

Willma Mankiller, Cherokee---Notice the content of the quotation. We would rather be called by the name of our ancestors...Cherokee, Navajo, Lokota, Apache, Arapaho...Native American and Indian are what others conjured up for us. But if you must, call us Indians.
