The Cherokee language is among the 50–90 percent of the world's total languages anticipated to be extinct by the year 2100. The printing of Cherokee began just prior to the tumultuous time of the Trail of Tears. Join Virginia Foundation for the Humanities Fellow Frank Brannon, an independent educator, scholar, and book artist, as he describes the history of Cherokee printing and an artist's efforts to support the revitalization of an indigenous language in the 21st century.
