Cherokee (Tsalagi) Native American Language Lite

       iOS iPhone

Osiyo! Cherokee-owned Thornton Media ( presents Cherokee Basic, the first Native American Indian language app available on the iTunes Store. Cherokee (tsalagi) Lite offers Cherokee words, phrases and syllabary entries by native speakers of the Oklahoma Cherokee dialect. Begin learning the beautiful Cherokee language anywhere, anytime from native speakers of the language!

We believe that language revitalization is a numbers game. The more Cherokee speakers that can be produced; the more chance the language has to survive. There are many Cherokees in the US, but not many speakers. I produced this language module with family members (mother, grandmother and aunt) and some friends from the Tahlequah area of Oklahoma. I hope this tool will help to save my endangered language.
