Or you can learn Cherokee!

With me, when it rains, it pours. So I thought I might check up on Cherokee resources, as a few years ago, I started to learn the language, Tsalagi, as it is called by the Cherokee people.

Raven teaches from his web site that there were two major dialects at the time of the dictionary composed by Prentice Robinson, Overhill and Kituwah. Overhill is also called Atali. It's spoken in Oklahoma. Kituwah is the Western Cherokee. There's also an Etali, which is Eastern Cherokee. Don't know where or how many speakers there are of that, but am curious to know the stats on all three populations.

Discovery: I found on-line Tsalagi (Cherokee lessons). Can hardly wait to try it.
