Saving the Language

A thousand miles from the Cherokees’ ancient homeland, the Trail of Tears ended in a shady field where two winding streams merged together.

Elders from each of the seven clans sat down in the grass to decide where to build the tribe’s new capital.

It would need plenty of water, not only to drink but to carry on the age-old tradition of “going to water” for ritual blessings.

The debate dragged on, until a frustrated elder pointed at the two streams, burbling just a few steps away.

"Tah-le-quah," he declared. "Two are enough."

Today, hardly anybody in Tahlequah could understand what he said.

More people in town speak Japanese, given the number of international students at Northeastern State University.

For the nation’s second-largest Indian tribe, the native tongue has become largely a curiosity, printed on street signs and billboards but indecipherable to all but a fraction of the population.
