According to the website of The Sequoya Museum in Vonore, “…this great Cherokee Indian gave his people an enduring gift. He gave them a writing system – so that the greatness of the Cherokee Nation will live forever.”

The Museum is located in East Tennessee within the Great Smoky Mountains. Families enjoy visiting the town of Cherokee, with its stadium-size performances, interactive exhibits, and state-of-the-art museum, complete with holograms!

Given all the tourists the area attracts, it is worth the time to head over to Vonore to find out how such an important heritage within American history was first captured in words.
