ANNUAL CHEROKEE BIBLE DAY:  Sept 18, 2015 (most Churches celebrate this on the 20th this year)

You absolutely need to download the Cherokee FONT first-- get it free here Free Cherokee Font (it fixes the "do" and the "li" problems !!!)
NOTE: if you have an ANDROID- you will need a special app for the font to appear
Remember: Plantagenet makes the "Do" look like a lambda, and the "li" and "tlv" appear nearly indistinguishable.

DID YOU KNOW?
Each month, beginning in 1844, Evan Jones began publishing "the Cherokee Messenger".
On a monthly basis, 1000 copies were printed and distributed.
Portions of the Bible (and eventually even John Bunyan's book "Pilgrim's Progress") were placed in these monthly editions.
As these were received and read, the feedback on them from the Cherokee was used to improve the translations.
In 1846, the entire New Testament was reprinted.
Evans also printed and distributed Hymns in this manner, along with a "Book for Mothers".
This process ensured that the texts were proof read and approved and corrected by fluent Cherokee speakers before the final publication was printed.

Prentice Robinson, Cherokee Author & fluent speaker, suggests that everyone who wants to seriously study Cherokee Language use the published Cherokee Bible.
Robinson has said on many occasions

"The Bible remains the basic text of the Cherokee language containing the most nearly complete vocabulary."
