We have erected a bronze statue here at Sequoia High School of Cherokee scholar, Sequoyah. The statue is
a smaller scale near replica of a statue entitled “Sequoyah the Gift” that resides at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. See details about the Sequoyah Statue project.
And, read Sequoyah's fascinating biography about how this extraordinary individual accomplished a feat, which no other person in history has done single-handedly, by developing a writing system known as the Cherokee Syllabary.
