More Cherokee language resources:

Beginning Cherokee by Ruth Bradley Holmes and Betty Sharp Smith ISBN:0-8061-1463-0 This book has cassette tapes that go with it and give the pronounciations for all the Tsalagi words in the lessons. Considering how important pitch is in Cherokee, I recommend such audio resources.

Easy to use Cherokee Dictionary Another wonderful book is the trade size volume by Prentice Robinson, a bilingual speaker of Cherokee, and teacher of the language. This book really is very easy to use and a great resource.
