Direc­tory fonts/cherokee

The Cherokee script was designed in 1821 by Segwoya.

The alphabet is essentially syllabic, only 6 characters (a e i o s u) 
correspond to Roman letters: the font encodes these to the corresponding 
roman letter.  The remaining 79 characters have been arbitrarily encoded 
in the range 38-122; the cherokee package provides commands that map 
each such syllable to the appropriate character; for example, Segwoya 
himself would be represented \Cse\Cgwo\Cya .

chero­kee – A font for the Chero­kee script

The Chero­kee script was de­signed in 1821 by Seg­woya.

The al­pha­bet is es­sen­tially syl­labic, only 6 char­ac­ters (a e i o s u) cor­re­spond to Ro­man let­ters: the font en­codes these to the cor­re­spond­ing ro­man let­ter. The re­main­ing 79 char­ac­ters have been ar­bi­trar­ily en­coded in the range 38–122; the chero­kee pack­age pro­vides com­mands that map each such syl­la­ble to the ap­pro­pri­ate char­ac­ter; for ex­am­ple, Seg­woya him­self would be rep­re­sented \Cse\Cgwo\Cya.

The font is dis­tributed as source; it works very poorly in mod­ern en­vi­ron­ments, and could do with ex­pert at­ten­tion (if you are in­ter­ested, please con­tact the CTAN team for de­tails).
