Learning Materials

Created by Mary ᎺᎵ Rae, and illustrated by her daughter, Miriam Rae-Silver, DAILP’s collection of learning materials aim to help learners of Cherokee through the texts and documents on our site. Our curricular materials offer explanations of critical concepts for learning Cherokee, as well as reading, writing, and critical thinking activities.

Our curricular materials have been split into the following five modules:

1. Syllabary Study
2. Days of the Week
3. Communication
4. Gadugi
5. Introduction to Cherokee Verbs

It is recommended to complete them in order, though you can take as long as you like within and between modules. All modules are printable as worksheets.
