Cherokee Syllabary: From Talking Leaves to Pixels is an interactive exhibit that explores the artistic creation of the Cherokee written language in the early 19th century and examines its use up to the present day. The exhibit traces the origins of the Cherokee language and illustrates its evolution from a purely oral language to the written form created by Sequoyah known as "talking leaves." The exhibit also examines the modern impact technologies like the internet and smart phones have had on the Cherokee language.
