A Cherokee Granddaughter

Q: My Grandmother was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. I have always wanted to know how to speak our language. I was wandering if you have any tapes or CDs that we could buy and listen to so we know if we are pronouncing the words right. I am interested in buying one if you do. I would like to teach my daughter the Cherokee language because I know that the way of our ancestors are slowly fading away. So if you have any CDs or tapes just let me know.

A: Thanks for writing. We don't sell language materials ourselves, but one very good Cherokee audio course for beginners is Introduction to Cherokee. If you like it well there is a second one in the series too, Intermediate Cherokee.

Hope that helps!
