Cherokee NationCherokee Nation Community & Cultural Outreach have recorded entertaining and educational information. In typical Cherokee fashion, nearly all these performances have teachable lessons intertwined.
Cherokee Nation’s Education Services department has made interactive children's books in our language available online so you can download and enjoy them together. With these resources, kids can color, read and learn Cherokee vocabulary. Members of the Cherokee National Youth Choir have taken turns recording themselves at home singing songs in Cherokee. Those clips have reached more than half a million people on social media in just a few weeks’ time. I know they are uplifting everyone who watches, and there are more videos to come. Additionally, Cherokee Nation’s online language courses, which had been temporarily suspended, have started again. Fluent, elder speakers share the language for all levels of learners. Go to the Language section on cherokee.org to find hundreds of language resources and to sign up for classes.
