Beginning Cherokee Ruth Bradley Holmes and Betty Sharp Smith
Recent increased interest has produced a demand for Amerindian courses. Many Cherokees who ignored past opportunies to learn their language from their families are now regretting their loss. Those who do not have time for organized study would often like to have a convenient source book on the Cherokee language and its syllabary. Beginning Cherokee was written to fill these needs. This book, the first of it's kind, teaches the rudiments of Cherokee, which is the native tongue of about 20,000 Americans, although most of those who speak it use it only as a second language. Cherokee has had several recognized dialects in the past. The two main dialects today are the North Carolina and the Oklahoma; this book uses the Oklahoma dialect. It will help everyone, whether Cherokee or not, to understand that Indian people are contemporary people with an enduring heritage. The Cherokee language frames an outlook and an intellect that can contribute much to civilization in the future, as it has in the past. The package comes as a book with two audio CDs.
