Sequoyah Enhanced Online Resources

Did you know that Georgia was home to the first Native American Newspaper published in the United States? Did you know that the newspaper was published only a few years after Sequoyah invented the first writing system for the Cherokee language? You can learn more about Sequoyah, the Cherokee syllabary, and the first Native American Newspaper in the United States on the newly updated Sequoyah Featured Historical Figure Pages available on the GHS website. Teachers can also download the newly updated teacher guide for Sequoyah on the For Educators page. The teacher guide includes a list of the Georgia Standards for Excellence covered in the pages, suggested vocabulary terms, and links to digitized primary sources for classroom use.
