    Although Sequoyah agreed to move west, he recanted in He still lost his home, however, and moved to Willstown (Fort Payne), Alabama. Having noted that white men could convey their thoughts through "talking leaves," Sequoyah believed he could devise a similar method for the Cherokee. A hunter and fur trader until a crippling hunting accident, Sequoyah became an excellent silversmith (maker of products containing silver). As an adult, he had contact with white people that made him curious about "talking leaves," as he called books.

    The Talking Leaves. At this period in history, Tsa-la-gis was spoken throughout Cherokee domain but did not exist in written form. The Cherokee communicated in their native tongue among each other, but used English for long distance correspondence and business records. Sequoyah spoke his native tongue well, but knew few words in : History Bot. Sequoyah had created the "talking leaves," 85 sounds that make up the Cherokee syllabary. He derived many of the symbols from letters he took from an English spelling book. However, these common symbols have no correspondence in sound value and many of the signs are completely original. He inverted some of the letters, modified others, totally.

    In the early s, white settlers and missionaries were intent on bringing the English language to the illiterate Native Americans. Sequoyah was intrigued by these leaves of paper with strange marks that talked. Doing what no one had ever done before, Sequoyah set about creating a written Cherokee languagehelping preserve the tribe's history and culture even today. Sequoyah, or Se-quo-ya as written today, was also known as George Guess or Gist, the first of three generations with the George GIST is the original spelling of the name, later generations most often used GUESS as the spelling. He had at least 5 wives/partners, as polygamy was a common practice for Cherokees of that era.
