It is known that he walked with a limp, but the actual reason for his disability is unknown.
22 SequoyahHe became fascinated with the way the English communicated with written words.Sequoyah called the English system of writing “talking leaves”.Some say he used this name because he believed the white man’s words dried up and blew away like the leaves when they changed their minds.
23 SequoyahOne day, Chief Charles Hicks taught Sequoyah how to write his name so he could sign his work like other silversmiths did.Sequoyah wanted the Cherokee to be able to communicate and preserve their traditions through writings like the white man.Sequoyah decided to create written words for the Cherokee language.
24 SequoyahAt first he used Pictographs but realized that there would be thousands of symbols in Cherokee language.Instead he decided to create symbols for each syllable the Cherokee spoke.Over 12 years, Sequoyah invented about 85 characters for various Cherokee syllables.
