Castiglioni's Vocabulary of Cherokee

by Luigi Castiglioni

- features one of the earliest published vocabularies of Cherokee. It was taken from Viaggio negli Stati Uniti dell' America Settentrionale (1790), an account of the early American Republic written by Luigi Castiglioni following his tour of the United States. A Milanese gentleman and botanist, Castiglioni recorded nearly 170 words in the Western or Upper dialect of Cherokee, and this new edition is translated from the original Italian. The volume also contains contemporary remarks on the language by the naturalist William Bartram (1791) and includes a valuable list of the names of 43 Cherokee towns which were inhabited during the 1770s.

The Cherokee Syllabary: Writing the People's Perseverance

The Cherokee Syllabary: Writing the People's Perseverance

by Ellen Cushman

- traces the history of Sequoyah's invention and explains the logic of the syllabary's structure and the graphic relationships among the characters, both of which might have made the system easy for native speakers to use. Also addresses the syllabary's enduring significance, showing how it allowed Cherokees to protect, enact, and codify their knowledge and to weave non-Cherokee concepts into their language and life. The result was their enhanced ability to adapt to social change on and in Cherokee terms.
