Searching For Sequoyah is a documentary about the man who invented a written form of the Cherokee language.  The film begins with the familiar story of Cherokee syllabary, but also looks at the much lesser known stories of the Old Settlers, the Mexican Cherokee, and contemporary efforts to revitalize the language.  Choctaw LeAnne Howe, Eidson Distinguished Professor in American Literature at the University of Georgia, is co-producer and writer of Searching For Sequoyah.
