Sequoyah: He was three quarters Cherokee Indian and one quarter White . In 1821, after 12 years of work, he devised a way to write the Cherokee language. It was called a syllabary. What is so remarkable is that Sequoyah had never had any formal education, and that he devised the syllabary by himself. Today, the syllabary is still very much in use among the Cherokee, and Sequoyah is a hero.
